These DIY Canvas Mounted Instagram Photos are the perfect way to show off your fave pics!
Do you have an Instagram account? I used to be obsessed with updating my personal account every day, often multiple times, with shots of San Francisco, New York, and my travels.
Once I started my blog’s Instagram account though, I got very lazy about posting to my personal account. What can I say, other than I can’t keep up with all these social media accounts?!?
Obviously, I needed to get back on the Instagram ball. Last week, as I was scrolling through my photos for inspiration, I decided to print a few NYC shots and mount them on mini canvases I found at Michaels.
I’ve wanted to make my own DIY Canvas Mounted Instagram Photos for a while, and this is one of these rare projects that exceeded all of my expectations! They turned out so cool, and the petite size is perfect for showing off a mini photo collection.
These DIY Canvas Mounted Instagram Photos are super easy to assemble and literally take minutes to make. I can’t wait to make more. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a whole wall covered in these mini prints? I’m already planning that for my next apartment!
This is a great craft for kids, and if you’re looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift, this is it!
- your favorite Instagram photos
- color printer
- printer paper
- 3″ x 3″ mini canvas panels
- Mod Podge
- foam paint brush
- Scotch removeable mounting squares
You’ll start by printing out your Instagrams. To do this, I saved my Instagrams to my desktop, then dragged one into a Word document. Next, I resized the photo to 3″ x 3″ (the size of my canvas), using the document rulers as a guide.
After resizing the photo, I copied and pasted it into the document 5 times. Then I selected each image and changed it to one of the other 5 photos I wanted to use. If you do it this way, you only have to resize your photo once.
Once you’ve added all of your photos to the Word file, print them on regular printer paper. Cut out the photos with the scissors.
Set the photos aside. Use the foam brush to dab a light coat of Mod Podge over the top of a canvas. Place one of the Instagrams onto the canvas. Smooth out any air bubbles and make sure the print is evenly adhered to the canvas.
Set aside the canvas to dry and repeat this process with the remaining photos.
Once the photos are dry, cover the entire canvas with a light coat of Mod Podge. Set aside to dry and repeat with the remaining canvases.
Flip the canvases over and attach mounting squares or magnets to each corner.
If your photos are lighter and brighter than mine, white canvases would also work.
Since I wasn’t sure where she’d hang the canvases, I attached magnets to the back so she can hang them on her fridge. They will make the perfect Mother’s Day present … cross your fingers that she doesn’t see this!
