I’m always looking for new creative ways to display photos throughout my home and after seeing these wooden letter photo collages on Etsy I absolutely had to have one!! So I immediately made a wooden letter photo collage a top priority on my must-do project list!

Now that I’ve made one for our family Initial I’m going to make one for Riley’s 1st Birthday Party. I’m going to get a large wooden 1 and display photos of her throughout her first year.

These Wooden Letter Photo Collages look great sitting on a bookshelf or fireplace mantle, as well as hanging on your wall. I especially love the way it looks when displayed with other photos as part of a Gallery Style Photo Wall. Not to mention they make AWESOME gifts!!

Okay, let’s get started!!

Here is what you will need:

  • Wood Letter
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • X-acto Knife
  • Pictures

Step 1: Start by printing your pictures, it’s better to have them printed professionally, as I’ve heard using inkjet ink can cause the images to turn green once the Mod Podge is applied.

The size you need the images printed will depend on the picture. For up-close pictures you are going to want them to be smaller than 4×6, so I went to Walgreen’s online photo center and created a 4×6 photo collage using 3 images. For pictures that are further back you can use 4×6 prints. I just printed a ton of pictures in a variety of sizes just to have a variety.
