Wondering what how to get all those awesome Instagram photos off of your phone and into your home? This project is for you!
You’ll need scissors, Mod Podge, 4×4 mini canvases, a brush and some Instagram (or other square) photos. To print out your Instgram photos, pull up the image on your computer, right click and ‘Copy Image’. Paste the picture into Microsoft Word or another document and resize to just over 4 inches.
You can use the rules at the top to make sure your photo is the right size. (Yup, I’m still rocking Microsoft Office 2003! If it ain’t broke…) I printed my pictures on standard office paper using the photo setting on my printer.
Use a your mini canvas to make sure the photos are exactly the right size. Alternately, you can make them slightly smaller and leave a boarder of the canvas visible, tear the picture edges instead of cutting them, or print the photos larger and wrap the picture around the edges of the canvas. give it the look you want!
It’s Mod Podge time! Spread a layer of Mod Podge on the canvas making sure to cover edge to edge.
Lay the picture on top and cover evenly with Mod Podge, starting from the center and working outward. This should help prevent wrinkles or bubbles, though if you see some sneaking in you can carefully lift the corner of the photo to smooth it out.
The images will look cloudy while the Mod Podge dries, so let them sit for 30 – 60 minutes.
And then find a great place to display them! Thanks for Bri (Whimseybox Director of Operations) for letting me use her great pictures of the Houston Heights in this post!
