Cousin Wall

I have four brothers (yep that's right - only girl) and we each live in a different state.  My husband has two siblings that live out of state as well.  We try to get together as often as we can, but that evens out to about once a year for my family and usually every couple of months for my husband's family.  When we do get together, my boys just love playing with their cousins and spending time together.  I created my family wall so they would remember their aunts, uncles and grandparents. 


But I also wanted to create a cousin wall.  We would frequently receive wallet size photos of the kids, but I didn't have a great place to display them, so this is why I put together those magnet boards.  I also wanted some vinyl to tie it all together.  I found a cute saying and had Jill over at Utah Vinyl cut it for me.


She's so good about getting just want I need - thanks Jill.  I put it on my wall and just love how it turned out.


Then I used those cute magnets and hung up pictures of all my nieces and nephews (I'm still missing a few photos though.)  There are 23 all together.


Now my boys can always see their cousins no matter how far away they live.  We're so looking forward to seeing many of them this summer.

  1. Great idea! I've wondered about doing something to help my kids remember their cousins, too. This may be it. Thanks!

  4. I love this! We do a "cousins photo shoot" every year (there are 6 total) and I have quite a collection of prints now. . .I think I may steal this saying and make a gallery wall now :) I love your family gallery wall too.
