DIY Picture Collage Idea

tesafilm® DIY Picture Collage

The Danish painter Richard Mortensen was the source of inspiration for this DIY photo collage. The motives are torn from different construction papers and then glued on a white picture collage frame – Even without any artistic talent for wall collage ideas, the results are astounding.

We Need:

picture frame with passe-partout construction paper in different colors scissors pencil ruler tesafilm® double-sided tesa® Adjustable Adhesive Nail for Wallpaper & Plaster (2kg)

How It Is Done:


Collect all required items and let's start!


Cut out a surface sheet – slightly larger than the frame in the passe-partout – in your desired background color. Tear various forms from the other papers in different colors.


Arrange the paper pieces on the surface.


Once you're happy with the design, peel off a strip of tesafilm® double-sided.


Apply a small piece of tesafilm® on the backside of the paper forms. There's no need to cover the full paper form with adhesive film. By not gluing the entire backside of the paper forms, these bedroom picture collage ideas look livelier due to tiny shadows.


Finally glue the collage onto the surface and cut off any excess paper.
Glue the collage with tesafilm® double-sided behind the passe-partout, frame the picture and hang it on the adhesive nail. The adhesive nail is mounted to the wall according to the instructions on the packaging.
