Shutter Wall Art – Changing Seasons

Since I put up my DIY shutter art last year, I’ve been itching to do something with it to make it a little less plain. We all know I love taking pictures, so putting pictures on it was inevitable.

This is how it looked for a few months after I hung them up; plain jane.

During Christmas I wanted to hang up our Christmas cards from family and friends and display them. I’ve always loved the idea of using them as garland and hanging from a mantle. But since we don’t have a mantle, I thought stringing them up on the shutters would bring a little Christmas cheer to that corner. It balanced everything out in the living room wonderfully!

I got around 100 4×6 prints, 10 5×7’s, 20 5×5’s (for my shutter collage), and 3 enlargements to update my gallery wall (8×10, 12×16, and a 16×20) for $57! I love my professional printing company. I am never disappointed!

So yesterday I took to it. Taking down the Christmas cards from last year, and putting up some of my favorite photos from our family trip to Florida. My sweet baby niece made 4 of the photos, which was 3 more than anyone else. I think I love her a little. :)

I can change it whenever I feel like it, and if you know me at all, I’m always moving around my decor and finding better spots for things. So this is right up my alley!

I considered placing photos randomly in the slots of the shutters, but I decided that might be too busy.

Does anyone have any other ideas on how I could decorate my shutters? I’d love to hear them!
