The latest issue of Fashionista magazine is all about Social Media and I contributed to this issue with a Diy project combined with some of my favourite Instagram pictures! Don’t you think some of your Instagram pictures deserve a spot on your wall? I thought it would be cool to have a couple of colourful Instagram frames with nice personal memories on my wall. Take a look!
This is what you need:
– Wood (I used Plywood)
– A selection of your favourite Instagram pictures, printed
– Sanding paper
– A ruler
– A pencil with eraser
– Small brushes
– Small frame hangers
– A hammer & little nails
Make a selection of your favourite Instagram pictures and use an app or website of your choice for these pictures to be printed. There are many apps & sites to choose from! I used the website ViaMartine for my prints and they turned out really nice!
Go to your local hardware store and let them saw three different sizes for the wooden frames. I used the sizes 10×12 cm, 12×14 cm & 14×16 cm. Use sanding paper to make sure the edges are smooth.
Now you can draw different graphic shapes and patterns on the wooden frames with a pencil. Paint the patterns in the colours that you like an leave it to dry. You can easily remove the pencil stripes with an eraser.
Attach the polaroids to the wooden frames with superglue. Don’t use too much glue because it could give stains.
Turn around the frames and place them on a towel. Place the frame hanger in de the middle and secure it with the small nails and hammer. Now you can find a nice spot in your home and make a mini exposition of your framed Instagram favourites!
