DIY Instagram Wall


I feel a little like a genius these days; I came up with this idea without a session on pinterest, without inspiration from my beloved diy bloggers… I did this one all on my own folks, I feel like a little congratulatory celebration is in order, no?

I love the idea behind instagram; looking into the lives of others, one adorable photo at a time, the memories that lay in ones instagram feed is mind blowing really. I knew that there had to be a way to bring these memories from my phone and get them into my home, on the wall. I could easily print and frame images, but that would come at a hefty cost with the amount of photos I wanted to feature; so that idea was squashed. But then, then is when I came up with the idea of hanging them, someway, somehow. Why not a curtain rod?

I bought 4 curtain rods, a pack of curtain rod rings, all from Target, that is before they left us (yes, us Canadians are still bitter about the whole thing). Had Sammy pull out his big boy tools and figure out all the details on the walls. I knew I wanted 4 images per rod, and I wanted to at least make them an 8″ square. We put the rods 12″ apart and 10″ from the edges of the walls; perfection.

Next I found all the images I wanted for the first run {as I plan on updating them often}, and had them printed at Staples on their 100lb card stock, the heaviest they had. I knew this wouldn’t be the ideal as the paper might curl up at the tops and bottom once cut out, but I needed to start somewhere. Had them printed for under $10, home to cut them out and hang them up.

I couldn’t be happier, well maybe I could; maybe if I could count better and didn’t miss printing 2 images. Ha! I blame tiredness, I can do that, I’m a mother. AND there you have it, our Instagram Wall.
