Most people these days are guilty of using their camera phones way more than other types of cameras and Instagram is all the rage.  We often fail to display these pictures anywhere other than the web.  Making a frame dedicated to holding Instagram pics is a great way to display these photos so that you can appreciate them daily.

Supplies needed to make your own Instagram frame:supply-list

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-15The first step to creating this Instagram frame is painting the shadow box. I painted the actual frame part of the box pink.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-1I painted the inside white.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-10To seal all the paint, I sprayed the box with matte sealer.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-14Because I’m a huge fan of glitter and don’t like anything too plain, I used sparkle tape to create gold stripes on the background of the shadow box.Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-18I attached a sawtooth hanger to the back of the frame.  To do this, I marked the middle of the frame with a pencil and simply lined the middle of the sawtooth hanger up with the line and nailed it down.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-9I used photo corners to adhere my photo to the back of the shadow box.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-13I wanted to create a little something extra to decorate the Instagram frame, so I created a pennant banner.  I painted polka dots on the canvas triangles and attached baker’s twine to the back of the triangles with hot glue.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-12The Instagram frame can display a grouping of photos.
Or it can display one larger Instagram photo.  And as you can see, the banner can be attached to the frame or above the frame.
Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-8Because the pictures are attached with the photo corners, you can remove them at any time and change the layout.

Instagram-frame-Crafts-Unleashed-17Now that I have my Instagram frame finished, I have no excuse to not print and display my Instagram photos!


Thanks again to Bethany for this great photo frame idea!
