Collage Wall {Wax Paper Method}

Have any of you seen this pin?

Well, ever since husband and I got married (November 2010), I've had dreams of a collage wall. My nesting urges have finally gotten me motivated to actually put one up. This was super fun and super simple. Not all my frames are matchy matchy, and it's not perfect. I love it, though!

First I laid out my frames and figured out which arrangement I wanted.

I taped together four rows of wax paper and laid them over the wrong-side-up frames. Then, I marked with a Sharpie where the nails would go.

Then I took the wax paper and taped it to the wall. Adjusted up, down, left right... 

Next, you simply nail right through that wax paper on the dots.

Pull down the wax paper (the nails stay, duhr)

Hang your framed masterpieces, and Voila!
{Notice I said "I," but my hubby is the one doing all the work ;)}
