If you have photos, postcards, or artwork to display but don’t want to punch too many tack holes in your walls, Michelle at Mich L. in L.A. came up with a unique, fun, and budget-friendly solution.  Her vertical photo garland, constructed from things you can find at the dollar store combined with a little recycling, allows you to hang multiple photos or pieces of artwork from a single point.  It is also quick to change out the images in the garland, making it simple to change the images as you acquire new ones, to decorate for holidays, or even to match your mood.  [how to make a hanging photo garland]
