Insta-Frame

We all love Instagram, but what do you do with all of those pictures?  Just let them sit out in cyberspace and collect cyberdust or actually display all of those memories in a creative fashion...I'll take the latter!

I decided to find one of those online Instagram print shops and I found that the easiest site to use, without using a different browser was Kanvess.com.  It even connects to your Instagram account and allows you to select the photos that you want to have printed....easy-peasy! ;)  The prints are 3" x 3" and were only $0.25 cents each.

About a month or so ago I found a 3' x 2' frame for only $7 at a local thrift store that I hit up all of the time, thanks to Young House Love sharing some of their favorite thrifting spots. 


At the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I would find something!  I even thought about framing our TV like this...but the Instagram photos won and get their time to shine!

I picked up some jute and mini clothespins from Hobby Lobby and went to work! 


I hated the color of the frame in its current state, nothing a little spray paint couldn't fix!  Using my spray painting techniques, I had this baby lookin' goooood!







It was time for the jute...easy - just staple to the back of the frame and cut to size.  I measured 3 1/2" between each jute line. 

 
                                                                                                                                                                                       All I had to do next was arrange my IG photos and hang them with my cute little clothespins.  I love how I will be able to easily change out the pictures when I want.
