Christmas Tree Photo Display 4

Instructions:

  • This project will require an adult to cut the wooden dowels, but can easily be switched out for kid-friendly materials! Try pipe cleaners or found twigs for a rustic look.
  • For the wooden dowels, purchase 3 24″ ones from your local craft store.
  • In advance, cut a 4″ piece, an 8″ piece, a 12″ piece and a 16″ piece (the 8″ and 16″ can be cut from one 24″ dowel and the other two on another.)
  • A hacksaw will make this part a lot easier to do, trust us!
  • Glue these pieces to your third 24″ wooden dowel to achieve the “tree” look.
  • Once dried, glue the mini clothespins on each row, as many as you’d like. Multiple photos can always be hung on each pin.
  • Let dry completely and attach your photos.

Supplies:

  • 4×4 PostalPix Instagram Prints
  • Frame (thrifted)
  • Sheet Metal
  • Fabric
  • Magnets
  • Buttons
  • Glue or Duct Tape

Instructions:

  • Have your metal cut to fit inside your frame either at the home improvement store or with tin snips.
  • Before putting the metal sheet inside the frame, wrap it with fabric of your choice and adhere it with an adhesive. Using duct tape can allow you to change out the fabric whenever you want.
  • Now you can put the fabric covered metal sheet inside the frame.
  • It’s time to decorate your magnets!
  • Buttons make for easy and affordable options. Just snip off the backs and glue the top part of the button to the magnets.

  • My family.

Tell us about your DIY and how you involved PostalPix!

  • I print out my Instagram pictures from PostalPix a couple times a year and wanted to display them at home where I could see them everyday. I thought about a bulletin board but I didn’t want to damage and put holes in my pictures, so I created a magnet board. I used a large thrift store frame, cut a large piece of galvanized metal from the home improvement store to fit inside my frame, and covered the metal in fabric to create the magnet board. I hot glued vintage brass buttons to round magnets to hold my pictures. Now I can see my pictures everyday and switch them out every few months with no damage!
