Learn how to create a GIANT PHOTO WALL...really cheap at GREAT for birthday parties, graduation, showers or any celebration!


I was going thru some photos the other day and realized I never shared the fun giant photo wall I made for Allison’s graduation party this summer.  It’s such a fun idea for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, showers……really any kind of celebration.

And the best part………it’s really cheap with a big impact!

Over a year ago Jen shared how she made a giant photo wall for her daughter’s baptism, by having photo’s printed on blueprint paper.  I knew it would be a really cool idea for the graduation party!

All you have to do is find a print shop that does large scale copies on blueprint paper.  They will be black and white and a little grainy, but they turn out really awesome!

At our old house, I had purchased a digital file and called a local printer to print a 36″x48″ poster for me……for less than $5.  I emailed them the file and they had it ready an hour or so later.  I loved it and hung it over our sofa at our old house.

I knew Staples would print them, but we don’t have a Staples near us, so this time I called Office Depot.  I was in luck!! They can print engineering prints!! 2 days before the party I picked out a few images of Allison over the years, put them on a jump drive and took it to Office Depot.  The people there were awesome and made my copies while we went to dinner and did a little other shopping.   I got three 36″x24″ posters and two 18″x24″ all for under $15!!  The large prints were just under $3 each and the smaller size was about $2.50 each.

I hung them on the vaulted wall using double-sided tape, in our breakfast room/kitchen and it was a huge hit!  So much so, that a few of her friends had some made for their graduation parties!

When the party was over, I simply rolled them up.  I’m might get some more made of the rest of the family and do something fun with them in the basement.
