Instagram Chalkboard

I have an addiction to Instagram.  It’s bad.  I keep taking these photos but do nothing with them.  They are sitting there on my phone doing nothing at all.

Well I found the best place to print them.  PostalPix is a free app that you download to your phone and order your Instagram photos through.  It’s so easy to do. And 4 x 4 prints are only $0.21 – $.99 each (depending on the amount you order).  I ordered about 40 photos and the cost with shipping was less than $11.  And they arrived at my door in just 3 days.  I love that kind of convenience.

So now how to display these oddly shaped square photos.

I had this frame that I picked up for $1 at a yard sale.  It contained the ugliest painting you ever did see. I don’t have a before picture but I’m sure you can use your imagination.

You may remember what I did with the ugly canvas here.

For awhile I used the frame as our Summer To Do list board.

But it needed a makeover.  So I painted the frame a blue grey paint that I had leftover from our kitchen cabinet makeover.  Used some mini clothes pins (love them) and some fun yellow fringe to hang the Instagram photos from.  And added this fun quote.

I added this bunting that I made with my Silhouette.  It may be too much.  But I like it, so up it went.

Now I can easily add photos and change the quote up whenever I like.

  1. I love this idea. I was wondering about sources for printing Instagram photos. I want to do something like this with my advent photos after Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. That is so cute Danielle! I had no idea you could print Instagram photos out… and what a great way to use them. Thanks for sharing!
