How to Make a 6-Frame Gallery Wall Out of Single Poster

by - Monday, January 09, 2017

Hi Friends, I wanted to hop on really quickly to share with you how I created the TV gallery wall from my Cozy Basement Family Room Reveal out of 6 frames and 1 poster! Although I had originally planned on creating a gallery wall with family pictures, I just didn't get around to taking nice, high quality photos for the size frames that I wanted to use, so I improvised using large format frames and a chopped up clearance poster from Hobby Lobby for the art.   Keep reading if you want to learn how to create a gallery wall in a pinch!  (This post contains affiliate links.  Should you click on them and make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.)

 If you'd like to get this look, here's what you'll need: 

 I started out with these format frames which were purchased at Walmart for less than $7 each.

Mainstays 16x20 Format Frame

These are kinda my go-to frames because they are really easy to load up, and they go with any decor.

I had this poster which I purchased at Hobby Lobby, probably a year ago on clearance for $3.  I decided that if I could get 6-8x10 sized pieces of art out of this poster,  I would be golden--since this is just a temporary fix until I can capture some good family photos. 

I used an 8x10 sheet of photo paper as my template and cut each piece of the poster using scissors and then getting nice clean lines using my paper cutter. ( An X-Acto knife would have been preferable) 

 I then popped out the glass, flipped over the white insert/stock photo, stuck a piece of folded painters tape to the back of one of my poster squares and placed it centered onto the back side of the stock photo/insert to make it appear as though it is matted.

and then put them up around my television.  If you'd like some tips on hanging a gallery wall, click to this post.
