DIY Hanging Picture Wall with Greenery and Ornaments

Decorating doesn't have to feel overwhelming. Not enough space for that 8 foot tree? No problem! Grab some twine, a few photos and some greenery from your backyard to create this sweet and super easy display for your room. Hang up pictures, notes, cards, and other paper memories to create a focal point on an empty wall. We added some of these easy spray coated ornaments to the mix. Vintage ornaments would look amazing here too.


  • - twine
  • - scissors
  • - small pieces of greenery
  • - mini clothes pins
  • - pictures, cards, and/or paper memorabilia 
  • - glass ornaments
  • - tape, thumb tacks, or thin picture nails


To Make:

Secure a few strands of twine to the wall with tape, thumb tacks, or picture nails which work best. Cut small pieces of greenery and place them randomly along the twine with mini clothes pins. Place your memories along the twine and in between the greenery with mini clothes pins. Now you can add other objects of interest like ornaments, ribbons or candy canes. We hung the ornaments up with cut twine in the same color as the twine we used on the wall. As you go, make sure to keep checking the strength of your twine and secure it with more tacks if needed.
