Hang your photos in a new and interesting way with this timber photo display – it's super easy to make. Check out our simple steps to make your own photo display.


1Gather your tools and materials

Below are all of the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.
Tools and materials needed to make a photo display.

2Mark where you'd like your photos to go

Use a pencil to mark up where you'd like to hang your photos – lay out your photos on the plank first so you have an idea. You'll want these to be evenly spaced, so use a measuring tape for uniformity. Your timber plank can be as long or as short as you wish.

3Spruce up your bulldog clips

You can choose to leave your bulldog clips as they are, but we decided to paint ours to match that gorgeous natural timber – we used a spray paint in Rose Gold. Sand your clips first to get the shine off, and then spray with your desired paint choice. Wear a mask when spraying and make sure you're in a well-ventilated area – outside is good. You can also choose to paint your timber but we decided to leave ours raw.

4Glue on your clips

Once your clips are painted and dry you can glue them to your timber. We used a hot glue gun and worked quickly – this glue dries fast!

5Attach your photos

Choose which photos you'd like to attach and simply clip them to the timber. Easy!

6Time to show it off!

How easy was that? This is a great way to personalise your family photos and looks particularly good propped up in bedrooms or displayed in living areas.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
