What can I use to stick photos on my wall?
Try 3m spray adhesive; the weakest kind.

Is it weird to hang your own art?
It really isn’t. Artists generally pursue the forms of art that appeals to them, so it would stand to reason that they would like having their own work hanging on the walls.
How do you hang unframed canvas?
Canvases can be secured on the wall without a frame, too, but only if they’re not too large or unweildy—and they’ll look better if the sides of the canvas are painted rather than blank; simply prop the open section inside the wood frame onto two sizeable nails (which will keep the piece more level than using one).
Is it cheaper to make your own frames?
Buying custom cut frames (already cut to the size you want) will run you in the neighborhood of $30-$60 per frame for a relatively standard moulding that is 1½” to 2” wide in a 16”x20” size. Wider and more elaborate frames will cost more. Polystyrene frames (imitation wood frames made of plastic) will cost less.
How do you hang unframed prints?
For unframed prints you might want to hang them on the wall with clips, to avoid damaging the paper. Or use adhesive tack to fix them to the wall. Use two clips and maybe some adhesive tack to stabilize the print. Or use only adhesive tack if you feel the clips are distracting from the art.
