When you’ve captured lots of good memories with your lomo camera, you are probably in need of a good way to display the lovely photo’s. Instead of putting them away in a album, why not create some lomo wall art?! There are many ways to do this.
As I’ve shown in a previous post, you can stick the photo’s with photo buddies to the wall. But you can also create something! This wall art diy is a mildly inspired by the pretty weaved wall hangings that pop up on the internet everywhere.
Cotton yarn (in any size, or colour you prefer), 1 copper pipe with a length of +/- 50 cm (about 20 inches), a large needle, a pair of scissors, washi-tape. And last but not least: your precious lomo photo’s! I’ve used 23 pieces, but the more you can fit in the better of course.
The whole making process speaks quite for itself.
1) Take the copper pipe and use the large needle to get the cotton yarn through the pipe.
2) Form a triangle with the pipe and the yarn and make a nice knot.
3) Tie the different ‘hanging threads’ to the copper pipe. For the length of these threads, I decided to create a triangular shape with the longest length in the middle and the shortest length at both ends.
4) Then all that’s left to do is to tape the photo’s with washi-tape to the hanging threads.
Do you already know which lomo treasures will end up in your own lomo wall art? Have fun creating!
