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:
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.
Paint the edges of your wooden blocks. 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?
