How to Transform your Gallery Wall for the Holidays

Sharing is caring!

I love having a gallery wall in my house. There are endless possibilities of things that I can put on the wall.

One of my favorite things to decorate with are family pictures. I want to be able to switch them out and have my family on display in my house.

Another one of the things I love about a gallery wall is because of how easy it is to change it up. Once you have the general layout of the gallery wall, you can pick items of the same size to easily transition from one season to the next.

It’s so easy to transform your gallery wall for the holidays. My gallery wall normally consists of 18 items:

  • 2 square picture frames
  • 2 canvases
  • 1 shelf
  • 2 8×10 picture frames
  • 3 5×7 picture frames
  • a wood piece
  • a sign with our name on it
  • a succulent wall hanging
  • a wreath
  • a pineapple picture
  • a letterboard
  • a paper mache deer head

I like using picture frames on my gallery wall because it makes it really easy to swap out your decor.

I love to change out the gallery wall for the holidays. I don’t change out everything, only select items to not over do it.

For Halloween, I transformed the gallery wall using only 8 items. It took me less than 15 minutes to transform gallery wall.

  • 3 wall hangings
  • 1 picture – I like to use pictures from holidays past
  • a piece of fabric
  • 1 printable – you can find this in the VIP Library
  • 1 banner
  • and a scary item, I used a crow
Halloween gallery items including a 31  with a spider wall hanging. A hanging of dark pumpkins with moon background. A piece of black fabric. A banner. A picture of a couple. A printable found in the VIP library.

Try to use preexisting nails whenever possible. I do not like to put any new nail holes in. If something doesn’t fit on an existing nail, use command strips.

You can take the nails not being used out of the wall and replace them when you put your regular decor back up.

I store the decor I take down in my holiday boxes for easy access when putting everything away. You can also store it in closets and cupboards, just don’t forget where you put it.

If you have anything 3D on the wall, think about what you can add to it to really make it pop. Simple black tulle transforms this deer head into a spooky creature. Then a Santa hat and some decorative ribbon turns it into a Christmas reindeer.

Add to what you already have on the walls. Adding a themed canvas and a raven transforms this gallery wall from sweet to scary.

Then for Christmas you can add some ribbon bows and the cute mistletoes!

Try incorporating frames you already have by printing out pictures to place inside. Try to remove as few items from the wall as you can to lessen the amount of work and things you have to store!

There you go! Such an easy transformation in less than 15 minutes!
