Instructions:

  • Purchase your materials and have everything all set to go. Everything was purchased at a Michael’s craft store and Home Depot for the small screw eyes, which are optional.
  • Cut the wooden dowel down to size with the X-Acto (or large knife), about 4.25″ in width just slightly larger than your 4×4 PostalPix photo print. Cut 4 total if you want to make it like a box or 2 if you want to adhere it to only the front.
  • Using a small foam brush, paint the trimmed down pieces of wood using the wood stain. This step is entirely optional as you can leave the natural wood as is, or even paint it with acrylic paint.
  • Let dry for at least 12 hours. The longer the better!
  • Align the print in the middle of two pieces of wood and glue them together.
  • Do the same to the bottom two pieces.
  • Let dry completely. Again, the longer the better.
  • Use small steel screw eyes and screw them into the top on either sides and tie twine to it. You can also use push pins or simply tape/glue the twine to either sides.
  • That’s it! Hang and enjoy.

We’re back with a DIY from Tiffany McClure, who we introduced last week with a collection of Instagram Displays.

Follow along below to learn how to make your own!

Instructions:

  • Purchase your materials and have everything all set to go. Tiffany purchased everything in this DIY at Michael’s Craft Store.
  • Take the yarn and start to cover the styrofoam wreath as many times it will take to cover the entire thing. Note: the bigger yarn you use, the quicker this process will go. Props to Tiffany for using small yarn!
  • Apply hot glue gun to the end of the yarn once you’re all done and adhere it to the finished piece.
  • Cut a long piece of yarn and glue it to the back of the wreath. Tiffany did hers in a zig-zag shape. Just keep in mind that the PostalPix Instagram prints will be hanging off of this string.
  • Add decorative pieces to the wreath to make it your own! Wooden letters, flowers, pins, etc. will all work perfectly.
  • Attach the mini clothespins to the yarn piece and hang your PostalPix prints.
  • Hang the wreath if you’d like or have it placed against a wall. That’s it!

It’s safe to say that PostalPix has some of the craftiest and coolest customers on Earth. Just a little biased… but can you blame us?!

Tiffany McClure recently tagged us in on a craft she had been working on with her PostalPix prints and we were just floored with her creativity! We quickly emailed her to get the deets on one craft only to find out she had created a few more from our own blog: Washi Tape Clothespins Instagram Display DIYEasy Cork Frame DIY for Instagram Prints.

What are your passions? What inspires you?

  • Photography has been my passion for a LONG time and I’m excited that with this job I can also be a stay-at-home mom! I very much enjoy doing any types of crafts, always looking for new ones to try. People with fresh ideas inspire me! I actually get inspired pretty easy. My husband and I just got married May 4, of this year and are now expecting a little one at the end of February! That’s definitely inspired me and sparked my creativity…already thinking of fun ideas when we find out whether it’s a girl or a boy! We also just moved into an apt. and are working on making it our own, which is another reason I’ve been going on a craft spree!

Please tell us how you first found out about PostalPix?

  • I first found out about PostalPix from a fellow photographer friend who took my engagement, wedding, and now “expecting” photos! She had some cute 4×4 pictures and instragramed “PostalPix”. That was a few months ago, then I posted a picture on instagram and said “I want this printed!” She commented and reminded me of you guys again! So thank you Laura! :) Once I clicked on your link, I saw all kinds of fun projects that I wanted to try on your blog! I decided to print 4 or 5 pictures to see if I liked how they came out…and ended up selecting 65 pictures instead. Oops :) I will definitely will continue using PostalPix for picture prints!! You guys are awesome! :)

DIY Lace Trim Instagram Prints

DIY Lace Trim Instagram Prints 1

We love, love, love a simple project and it really doesn’t get any simpler than this! Inspired by this DIY Fringe Photo Garland by PB teen, we just had to add this fun idea to our own PostalPix prints but with a variety of different trims we could find. It’s the perfect DIY to make to use up those scraps of ribbons, fringes and trims (you know you have a basket full of them from leftover projects!)

Supplies:

  • 4×4 (any size, really) PostalPix Instagram Prints
  • Washi Tape (any color, any design)
  • Lace trim (lots to choose from at Joann’s)
  • Double-sided Adhesive
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  • Gather up all of those leftover lace ribbons, fringes and decorative yarn pieces… whatever you have handy!
  • Lay the Instagram prints on a flat surface so you have a level work area to measure.
  • Measure out the lace trim and mark with a small pen (or just eyeball) where you should cut the trim. PostalPix prints are 4″x4″ and your lace trim should be about the same.
  • Carefully cut the lace trim and clean up any pieces that may fray.
  • Lay the 4″ lace trim toward the bottom of the photo print. Some of it can be on the print itself.
  • Adhere the wash tape to connect the lace trim to the photo print and just fold over any left over pieces or simply cut it off.

That’s it! From here, you can display them as is, but it’s best to have them hanging to show the trim off. This is a great project for the little ones!
