#colorfullycrafted

tag your Instagram photos with #colorfullycrafted to get regrammed!Happy Wednesday friends! Some of you may have caught this announcement over the weekend on Instagram, but I started a hashtag feed! Tag your color and fun photos with #colorfullycrafted to be regrammed on my account (with credit of course). Other than wanting to connect with you more through social media, I wanted to start this hashtag for another reason.

Often times I hear that people struggle with finding color where they live. And I hear you. Even though I live on the west coast, Portland for the most part is very much muted browns and greens. But the beauty about life is that color and joy are everywhere when you seek it out.  And even when you’re at a loss, or simply can’t find it in your immediate surroundings, you can be the person to create it. Sometimes all it takes is that bit of extra effort.

I can’t wait to go on this color hunting journey with you!

How to Turn Your Instagram Photos Into Wall Art

Learn how to turn your Instagram photos into wall art! Only takes a half hour and cost less than $30.My love for Instagram runs deep, but one thing I really miss is having physical copies of my photos. After scrolling through the snaps from my recent California road trip, I decided enough was enough and just printed a few off. And what better way to display them than by turning them into wall art?! This project is amazingly easy (and possibly my favorite to date) and can be done for under thirty buck. $30! Here’s how you do it:

Time: 30 minutes
Materials: 4×4 photo prints, wood blocks, paint, decoupage, brushes
Cost: ~$25

Only takes a half hour and cost less than $30.I used Snapfish to print my photos. If you plan on hanging your blocks with nails, you will want to hammer in your hook before starting this project. I recommend that you use removable velcro hangers instead though. They won’t hurt your walls and your art will hang flat.

Don’t worry if you get paint on the flat sides since one side will face the wall and the photo will cover up the other. Once the paint is dry, apply a thin layer of decoupage to the block and then place your photo. When your photo is in the desired position, let it dry flat.

Hang on your wall in a grid, shape, or any way you like! Easy peasy, don’t you think?
