Not sure what to do with the trinkets you brought home from your summer vacation? Here are a few ideas on how to incorporate your travel souvenirs into your home decor, so you can enjoy memories of your greatest adventures all year long!

Photos are by far the easiest thing to bring back from a trip, since they take up no space in your luggage… just on your camera or phone’s memory card!  Have one particularly amazing shot? Get it printed on a large canvas for some personalized wall art.

Got it? Frame it! Create a mismatched and chic gallery wall by framing photos, postcards, ticket stubs, brochures, maps, and knick knacks in a variety of sizes and shapes.

Are you a collector of coins or ticket stubs? Put them all together in a massive collage to create a unique art piece for your wall.
