Check out my gigantic number 1! I think this is a simple photo collage for birthday party idea that is cheap and easy to make. I’m super excited with how it turned out and it was a hit at the party! I’ve been working really hard to rejuvenate my creative spirit post-baby and this feels like the first thing I’ve been thrilled about that was actually my own idea, not something off Pinterest! I spent some time browsing ideas on how to display pictures at a birthday party but didn’t want to spend much money.

How to make a photo collage for birthday party

It’s not anything super fancy, but I love it! We had some spare cardboard from a table we bought, but you could easily get some from a local appliance shop. My husband just did simple straight lines and used a craft knife to cut it out.

I used  photo splits* to attach the pictures; they let me reposition as I adjusted the layout but stick well enough to hold everything up. I’m 5’2 to give it some scale, and it’s covered in approximately 90 photos.

I started by edging around in alternating landscape and portrait photos and then just filled in at random.

Simple fins and duct tape made it sturdy!

All in all, a $4 project since we had the cardboard and duct tape on hand, and the photos were free thanks to a Target deal a few weeks ago. I can’t wait to put it up at the party!
