To make this, you can go with the simple way by sticking your photo prints directly on the wall, or add a little something to make it more stylish, for example wooden blocks or wall photo frames.

This is another simple wall decor that shouldn’t be underestimated, as it can add a great touch to your wall. Think of a blank canvas where you can stick photo magnets and other refrigerator magnets on.
For this, you need a metal sheet (or more than one sheet if you want to make it big) for your magnet board. Now, the next step is up to you; you can leave it as it is, coat it with fresh paint, or wrap it in a fabric of your choice. Once done, set it up on the wall, and start decorating it with your favourite magnets!
