It has become almost second nature to decorate your space by hanging art, precious photos and other memorabilia. After all, it is a fantastic way to really give your space a dash of your true personality and give the place a real ‘homely’ vibe to it. However, taking the time to buy all the frames for all the artwork and pictures can be heavy on the wallet and consuming on the time, so here are a few other ways you can display your pieces in a budget-savvy yet highly aesthetic manner.
- Washi Tape

Take note! Washi tape is an amazing craft material that comes in a wide variety of colors, patterns and textures. Not to mention, it is easily removable, so you won’t have to worry about it leaving an unseemly mark on your wall.

Whoever said that you have to find the perfect frame that can fit your photo/artwork like a glove? Sure, this may be a frame, but this is definitely one that you can easily do yourself and without much trouble. Simply find some old bits and pieces and make your very own container. No rulers needed!
- Stick a Branch Through It
Sure, this might sound a little offbeat, but if you want to be extremely savvy with space whilst finding a unique way in which to show off your pieces, hang them from a branch. If you are afraid of poking holes through your artwork/photos, instead of stabbing the branches through, try using hooks, clips or even good old tape.
After you have done your annual clean out of your wardrobe, it is highly likely that you will have a couple of spare hangers just floating around without purpose. So, why don’t you try and put them to good use? These are perfect for hanging art in a chic and unique way. In addition, they are so much cheaper than custom framing.
- Strings, Clips and Driftwood

Well, try rounding up some driftwood, find some spare string and clips and this whimsical method to showcase your artwork and pictures will not only provide a really beachy bohemian vibe to the place, but it is also very versatile.
