When I was growing up, pictures were taken exclusively on special occasions and even then, it was dependent on whether or not someone remembered to buy film and fresh batteries. Jump forward a couple of decades and every moment is a picture moment, thanks to advances in digital technology. To say that we are currently in the golden age for picture snapping is probably something of an understatement.  For some, this presents a dilemma of sorts: so many pictures, so little wall space. Fear not, this DIY rundown is for you. Keep reading for four fun, space-conserving ways to display your favorite memories.

Geometric Wiring 

Much like the photo wall hanging above, this DIY also makes strategic use of negative space, in a way that really makes the photographs stand out. Use anything from yarn, to twine, to stretchy jewelry cord, (like this DIY-er did), to form the grid.
