We recently stumbled on this awesome geometric photo display from blogger Valerie from The Caldwell Project and knew we had to share it on ours! We broke down the supplies that will be needed for this project as well as a step-by-step instruction list on how to make your own. So follow along below and be sure to head over to the Caldwell Project to get more inspiration on other DIYs!


  • PostalPix Photo Prints (various sizes)
  • Braided Rope
  • Pencil & Eraser
  • Nails & Hammer
  • Sketch Paper
  • Small Binder Clips


  • Pick a clean area on your wall and get to drawing! If this part is too nerve-wracking, you can start with it on a sketch pad.
  • Hammer in a nail (something small and doesn’t stick out too far) everywhere there is a turn or a cross section.
  • Erase any lines you sketched on your wall.
  • Valerie used a stretch bronze jewelry cord, but any type of string or yarn will do.
  • Figure out what direction you want to have the cord wrap around each nail.
  • Tie the last one in. That’s it for the display itself!
  • Use small binder clips to add your photos. Be sure to spread them out across your display.

Love this DIY, Valerie! To get inspired with all of her fun projects, head over to The Caldwell Project!
