How to display Instagram photos
For all of you Instagram lovers out there, I know you have a gazillion beautiful photos sitting in your phone!
Guess what? It’s time to print them out and display them!
First thing you’ll need to do is print out your Instagram photos.
I printed them in 2.5″ on card-stock paper. I could have printed them on photo paper, but I opted for card-stock because it’s thicker.
Once printed, my sweet little ladies (Gabrielle & Emanuelle), cut them out for me. Yay for help! :)
Now it’s time to start working on the Instagram photo stands!
Disclosure: I was provided product by BEHR to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
How to make photo stands
- Piece of scrap wood. (My piece was ½″ high x 1 ¼″ wide and about 2′ long.)
- Measuring tape or ruler
- Sanding block
- Paint (I used BEHR MARQUEE Satin Enamel in Perpetual Purple MQ5-42.)
- Paint brush
- Table saw
- Jig saw or handsaw
Step 1: We started off by using the table saw to make a 5/16″ groove about 9/16″ from the edge of the piece of wood, just so that the groove wasn’t quite in the center of the piece.
Step 2: Next, we made a 1″ markings on the piece of wood, using a ruler and pencil.
Step 3: We used a jig saw to cut the pieces. We made 15.
Step 4: Next, time to use a sanding block to make each piece nice and smooth.
Step 5: My favorite part, time to paint!
You’ll notice that I used Exterior paint. Why? Simply because that’s what I had on hand.
The color I used was BEHR MARQUEE Perpetual Purple (MQ5-42) in Satin Enamel. The color is PERFECT for my living room, where I’ll be displaying my Instagram photos.
Step 6: Once the photo stands were dry, I inserted my Instagram photos, and placed them in my mailbox cubbies.

P.S. I have also a fun how to make cheap wood frames, if ever you’d rather display your photos in a bigger format.
