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?

    This is easy and much more affordable than printing on a canvas. Where did you get the wooden blocks?

    Oh Creative Day sent me over here. This is such a cool idea. I’m just about to make magnets with the instagram photo cards I got from Social Prints but now I want to do this too!!!

  • Nora N.

    This is a FABULOUS idea!! I love that you used wood blocks for this project. So clever! The colors you used are STUNNING. I need to look through my photos now to see what I can duplicate to create something like this. Thank you for the inspiration!
