Easy steps to change your gallery wall for Christmas.
Does the idea of changing your gallery wall for Christmas seem intimidating?
Worry no more.
I take you through some easy steps to change your existing gallery wall to bring the holiday spirit of Christmas into your home.
I actually did this makeover twice. The photos below are what I ended up doing later.
In this post, I share my original gallery wall makeover for Christmas.
A girl can change her mind, right?
Here is a video showing you the Christmas home tour of this gallery wall with the newer design.
This is my favorite time of year.
Especially when decorating my home.
Decorating for Christmas automatically puts a smile on my face.
How about you?
This year, I decided to tackle giving my gallery wall a makeover for Christmas.
In this tutorial, I will share a tip (step 3) that I learned that helped make the whole process a breeze.
First here is the BEFORE of my gallery wall.
Here is the AFTER photo of my gallery wall.
What you will need for this gallery wall project:
Steps to changing your gallery wall for Christmas.
Step One: Pick out the prints for your gallery wall.
My number one source for getting inexpensive prints is from Etsy.
I will link where I found my prints, here.
There are so many to choose from, it can be overwhelming.
Picking a theme can help narrow down what to look for.
- Norman Rockwell
- Sleigh Rides in the Snow
- Santa Claus
- Poinsettia (red or white) floral prints
- Victorian home in the snow
- Thomas Kinkade
- Vintage family around the Christmas tree, to name a few.
Step Two: Plan the placement of your Christmas prints.
There are two quick ways to plan out the placement of your prints.
- Place all the prints on the floor and figure out where you want them.
- Tape them onto the frames temporarily. Note: don’t use really sticky tape cause it can ruin the edge of the print. Ask me how I know.
I think #2 helps with visualizing how it will look when finished.
Both ways will work.
Step Three: Take down frames one at a time (my tip).
To keep this project from getting overwhelming, only take down one frame at a time.
You will know where it goes once you change out the print.
It makes the process so much easier!
I actually got this project done in less than 40 minutes.
Step Four: Grab a pair of scissors.
The only thing you’ll need are a pair of scissors.
You may need to cut your print to fit into the frame.
Step Five: Open the back of the frame.
Depending on your frame, you’ll need to pop out the old print.
For this frame, I had placed a simple black frame into this ornate frame and secured the back with duct tape.
Once I removed the black frame, I popped open the front glass.
I pulled out the old print.
As I took out my prints, I collected them all together and rolled them up with a rubber band placed in the middle to secure them to use later.
Step Six: Put new Christmas print into frame.
Place the new Christmas print into the frame.
If it doesn’t fit, cut the print with your scissors. Like the photo below.
Step Seven: Hang your frame back onto the wall.
Doing this process of changing the frames one at a time made this a simple makeover.
I hung this frame back onto the wall.
I love how it turned out!
Repeat this for all the frames.
Repeat steps 3 to 7 for each frame.
Some of the frames may have different backing.
Some have prongs or latches.
