DIY Printicular Instagram Photo Display

Instagram is my favorite form of social media.  I feel like it really captures the essence of life.  That sounds pretty deep for a random Tuesday doesn't it?  But, seriously, what I love about instagram is the way it allows me to really capture the every day moments.  Those moments are the ones I never want to forget and instagram makes it possible for me to hang on to them.  I especially love to print my instagram photos and display them.

Do you have the Printicular app on your phone?  (I mentioned the app here a few months ago.)  If not, you need to download it like yesterday.  It allows you to print your insta-photos directly from your phone to your nearest Walgreens  - and your prints are ready for pick up in no time at all!  I sound like an infomercial, and I'm not even being paid or perked to sing their praises!  I just love them that much.  I'm a fan of quick and easy  - what can I say? 

To display a few of my recent prints, I grabbed a thrift store frame and a couple pieces of scrap wood.  I cut the wood pieces down to size and painted them with magnetic primer.  Once dry I glued them to the back.  I used a few vintage-earrings-turned-magnets I made a while ago to display the photos.

Easiest project ever, and I love the way this special display brightens up the mail center in my kitchen.

I also used printicular to print the insta photos I used in my time out corner.  Get the app now if you don't already have it  - you can thank me later.

Feel free to follow me on instagram (Carmel_ourfifthhouse) for behind the scenes peeks at my every day life.   Are you on instagram?  Do you love to print your photos too?

  11. I love this, Carmel! I went back and read your post on the app. Do you mind sharing about how much the prints cost? I like the idea of just going to pick them up myself at Walgreens!

    1. They are $.39 for a 4x4 size. They also do an 8x8 size, but I'm not sure what the cost is for that size.

  12. That kitchen is wonderful! The only suggestion I have would be a statement piece...something like this jar or another beautiful option. http://bit.ly/1aePEjQ
