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
**You can also find this project in my book Hello Color!

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?

30 Minute Wall Art DIYValentine’s Day may be long over, but my love for all things heart shaped is still going strong. After rounding up these diy wall art projects a while back, I decided that I’m well overdue for making some of my own. Even if you’re not a fine artist, as long as you have thirty minutes, you’ll still be able to make this wall art!

30 Minute Wall Art DIYIf you don’t have a heart stencil at home you can easily make one by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting out half of a heart, just as you did when you were making Valentine’s as a kid. Lightly trace the shape on your canvas with a pencil.

To make sure your outside lines are smooth, I recommend lining your shape with a smaller brush before filling in with paint.
