DIY Instagram Mini Easel Display

Are you obsessed with taking Instagram photos? Well, if you are (and are like me), you probably have an entire gallery full of pictures that are just taking up space on your phone. I decided it was time to start using my photos. I came up with an idea that lets you choose an Instagram photo, whether it be based on the season,  a special event, or a favorite object you snapped. The best part about my idea is you can change your picture as often as you change your mind!

I turned two cork coasters and a mini easel in to the perfect way to display your favorite Instagram photos. This is a super quick project. The best part is, you can take this mini easel display to work and have ever-changing artwork on your desk!

    Brilliant!! I love this! Question – I’m familiar with Instagram but have never thought of printing a picture from it. Any tips or pointers that a first timer should know? I total love this idea. I can’t stop staring!

      Thanks! I actually just emailed myself the pictures then printed them off of my color printer! :) I am sure you are could send them to any of the online photo processing companies like snapfish, shutterfly, etc. Hope that helps!

    hiya, I just found your blog and am loving scrolling through. so beautifully put together. I also love this idea .. . I mean don’t you think that your instagram pics sometimes get a little lost?! in the great timeline that is the internet!! I actually have a little easel with a baby canvas my sister brought me when she went to Berlin for the day so I am going to have a little go at this! x

      Hi Hanna! Thanks for stopping by. I think we all have so many pictures, but we never do anything with them. I thought this would be a nice idea to start showcasing some of our pictures. :) Glad I could inspire you.
