Collages are accessible and affordable wall decor, so easy that even the artistically-challenged among us can create humble masterpieces for ourselves, family and friends. As youth we did it with scissors, old magazines, and glue. Today, there are tons of flexible ways to turn photos of pets, travel, people and places into memorable and highly personal artwork.

Not intimidated at all and want to try a more DIY version?
