Home, sweet, home: Turn your Instagram obsession into art!

instagram art

 

Hands up if you’re addicted to Instagram? Great, so that’s everyone!

Well why not turn all those perfectly vintaged snaps of a-day-in-the-life-of-you into a gorgeous (and super easy!) piece of art… just like this.

WHAT YOU NEED

A simple frame, and the bigger the better!

Access to a colour printer (if you do this at work and get caught, please don’t blame me!)

Painters tape/masking tape (to help with the spacing)

White backing card (this may already come with frame)

Spray adhesive

HOW TO MAKE IT

It really couldn’t be simpler.

Firstly work out how many photos you’ll need.

Print out that many.

Use the painters tape to layout the grid on the backing card.

Play around with laying the order of the photos until you have them perfect, but do this on the floor next to the frame.. not on the actual backing card just yet.

One row at a time, spray a small amount of the spray adhesive (oh, you might want to be somewhere well ventilated to do this!)

Then quickly place your pics into their allocated, and freshly stickied, spots.

Smooth them down carefully so there’s no lumps.

Repeat for all the rows.

Allow to dry for 10-15 mins.

Carefully remove the tape.

Place the backing card inside the frame, close it all up.

And you’re done!

Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

 

Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram while you’re at it!

Before launching DDGDaily.com in 2007 I worked for a whole bunch of women's glossies both here and in the UK including Shop Til You Drop, New Woman (RIP), Grazia.com.au (also RIP), Cosmopolitan UK, and I even had a column in FHM (RI... I might be jinxed!). And before all that I was listing shopping as my number one hobby from about the age of five.
