How do you display your film photos?

(one. two)

At the moment I have so many lomography and instax pictures floating around my house and I'm trying to figure out the best way to display them all. There's no way I'm hiding them away in an album, but it's also not working for me to have them just sitting in piles everywhere as they currently are (apart from the few that have made it onto the fridge).

So what do you do with your film pictures? So far my best ideas are a heart above the bed with the instax pics and strings of lomo shots in another room. Any other suggestions are welcome :) It will be my weekend project!

  1. I like placing my photos in old frames, or frames I've made myself, and hanging them up on the wall. It ads a nice vintage touch to any room of the house ;)

  3. I have the same problem! I would like to use old frames, but if I want to frame all my pictures, it'll be so expensive... I have to think about this some more! I do like the instants put up as a heart!

  4. that's so pretty!
    I always wanted to do the clothesline photo thing, but instead put them in box frames that are usually displayed in my bathroom so people have something to look at on the wall while going poop! haha.

  6. the heart is so cute :) I can't quite decide what to do with ourselves myself – we used to have them all on a wire heart (meant for storing xmas cards) but we took that down and they need a new home now.

    (I used to put them round mirrors when at uni!)

  11. I love the first pic! Definitely have to keep that idea in mind :)

    I display my film photos in frames of all sizes around my room, some are on photo canvases holders and some are on paperweights (the ones with clips to hold the photo upright).

    means you dont have to blutac them all and they end up perfectly spaced! you can also take them all down in one go and put them somewhere else!

  22. I've framed Polaroid photos and 35mm film photos. I've also taken small 3M hooks, lined them up in a row, taken bulldog clips and then clipped photos and hung them on the hooks. Simple and utilitarian. Good luck!
