This botanical print gallery wall is one of my most pinned and viewed projects…so thank you all!! It’s the one thing I haven’t changed in my home since I put them up…which says alot since I think I’ve changed up just about everything else!!
How To Make A Botanical Gallery Wall
Have you seen how much botanical prints are selling for in the stores or online? I loved the look but wanted to find a way to do them on my own for less.
I scoured Pinterest and Google and finally found a free source that you could download the images from here (you need to scroll down through the left column for a bit until you come to the plates).
I printed my pictures off of my home printer using a cream-colored card stock because I wanted them to look like they had been pages from an old book. You could also upload the images and have them printed out as photographs for a more polished look depending on your decor.
I found these beautiful frames at the Christmas Tree Shops, I loved the look of the linen matte. The frame has an 8×10 opening and I printed the images on 8 1/2 x 11 standard paper so the edges of the print needed to be trimmed down a bit.
Hanging The Frames
Honestly, the hardest part of this project is hanging the frames!! You really need a laser level to make sure everything in your botanical gallery wall square is even.
I figured out the center of the wall first and how high I wanted the top row to hang. Marked the spot with a pencil and then put in the nail and hung the print.
After that, it was easier to determine how far apart I wanted the frames to be from one another.
The botanical prints add such a pretty touch to the dining area in my kitchen.
I really love how this wall came out! It’s a focal point when you come in through my kitchen door.
Here’s a few images of how the botanical gallery wall has stayed the same as I’ve changed the dining area.
