DIY Instagram Picture Frame

Hello friends! It’s been pretty quiet on the blog this week as I have completely divuldged myself in organizing an Instagram auction for a sweet friend who lost her 6 year old son unexpectedly last week. So I am very excited for our home decor contributor, Siri, to be here on the blog today! She’s sharing a simple tutorial for a DIY Instagram Picture Frame that you are going to L.O.V.E.
 
 
Hey Everybody! It’s Siri from Of Pumpkin Thieves and Buffalo Wings again!

  

Today I’m sharing a new DIY home decor project to help to decorate your walls and simultaneously use all of those Instagram photos you post!

If you’ve read my guest posts before, you know that I am a photographer so a love of taking photos just comes with that territory! I take photos all the time on my camera, but if my camera isn’t handy, I find myself taking just as many on my phone. I love posting them to my Instagram but after I started doing that for a while, I found myself wondering how I could get all of my favorite Instagram photos off of my phone and onto my walls. Finally, with a little creative imagination, I made up my favorite way to display my Instagram photos in my home!

Here’s what I used:

a frame from Goodwill ($6)

some twine (already had it – $1 at Target)

scissors

pencil

a hot glue gun

mini clothes pins from Michael’s ($2)

spray paint (already had it)

printed Instagram photos from Printstagram
Let’s start from step one.

1. Get an old frame. 

I picked up this big one from Goodwill for $6. I didn’t need the fantastic lady and her drink, or the glass in the frame. All I needed was the frame itself.

Make sure to choose one that you like the design of.

Also, try to choose one that has an alligator hardware piece instead of a wire across the back.
 If you get one with a wire, you can install your own alligator hardware at the top on the back.

2. Discard everything in the frame, including the glass. 

3. Paint the frame.

I chose to paint my frame pink to match my daughter’s playroom and my office area. Spray painting or hand painting are both good options. Just make sure you cover the front and sides so that the original color is no longer visible.
 I used newspaper to cover the ground in my garage where I sprayed.

 

Be sure your frame is completely dry before moving on to the next steps.

4. Measure your pictures and your frame. 

I wanted to hang 4×4 instagram photos in rows in my frame, so I added an inch for space in between rows and measured and marked (with a pencil) the back of my frame so that all of my rows would be evenly spaced.

5. Once your frame has marks on the back, cut twine into sections to fit across the frame at each mark. 

I chose a navy blue twine and simply cut it into sections for each of my five rows of photos.

6. Hot glue the twine to the marks you’ve made on either side.

I glued one side, waited a minute for it to dry, then used a leveler to make sure that the other side was glued straight across.

 

7. Use the tiny clothes pins to clip your photos onto the string in rows. 

I chose white mini clothes pins that I found in the scrapbooking section at Michael’s and printed my Instagram photos using the Printstagram app.

8. Hang it up and admire your handiwork!

 
So just to recap, 
I spent $8 and used other supplies I already had and I printed the photos I wanted to use.
My frame went from this to this. 
 

 I loved the look of this project so much that I created others for other rooms in my home. 

Here’s one I created for my hallway. 

 

 

 

I hope you try it out and love the results!
 It’s so much fun to put those awesome instagram photos to good use!
 I’d love to see your rendition of my Instagram frame!

Thanks for reading my post on Kara’s amazing blog! I hope you enjoyed this month’s easy DIY home decor idea!
Come by and visit my blog next week for the full reveal of my office and Svea’s playroom!
