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

Supplies:

  • Piece of scrap wood. (My piece was ½″ high x 1 ¼″ wide and about 2′ long.)
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Pencil
  • Sanding block
  • Paint (I used BEHR MARQUEE Satin Enamel in Perpetual Purple MQ5-42.)
  • Paint brush

Tools:

  • 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.

Use a measuring tape or ruler to make cut markings on the piece of wood.

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.

Have yourself a fabulous day!

Love what you have done here ! I'm always looking for new ways to display photos, this is great as it's easy to update. I like the idea of being able to rotate my photos. We probably take more photos than we have ever done but look at less photos as we don't print them off like we used to. Cheers !
