DIY Photo Banner

Update: Through September 29, you can get a free 8x10 print at Walgreens with the code FREEPIX. It's a good time to print out the main photo for this DIY photo banner.

I love pictures. I had so many on my last phone that I had to delete an app or two if I wanted to take any more pictures. Really, my dinosaur of a phone was basically an oversized SD card.

I think a lot of people are like that too.

But, lots of photos on your phone comes in handy when you're planning your wedding and can quickly open a photo app and print pictures to create a DIY photo banner.

DIY Photo Banner


I've seen this done two ways. You can either print pictures of you as a couple or you can print photos of each of you growing up until now. The latter is really cute if you met each other later in life. That way, your family and friends can see your fiance as a child and vice versa. If you have grown up together, photos as a couple works better because then you're giving your guests a glimpse into your life.

Hang the fabric on a wall in your venue. I used a chair sash and hung it with Command hooks (using a quick knot) since you can pull them down without leaving behind holes.You could go with something like jute cording, but I would worry about the clothespins slipping during the reception and you having photos all over the floor by the end of the night.

Quick aside: Be sure to double check that you're able to do this. Venues have their own rules about hanging things. So before you spend money printing photos, ask your venue if it's okay to hang -- and how they advise you do it.

Affix clothespins to each of the photos. You want clothespins instead of anything that involves glue, especially if you borrowed these from baby books.

Attach the clothespins to the fabric ribbon. Put the "Every Love Story Is Beautiful But Ours Is My Favorite" free printable in the middle and scatter the other photos around it.

Now, about that printable. I actually made it for you already so you don't have to. Just click the image below, save it to your computer, and then print it as an 8x10. I would print it somewhere like Walgreens photo instead of at home, so it's on photo paper, matches the other photos, and doesn't waste all your ink.
