Do you ever get tired of doing everything digitally? Sometimes I just want to read a physical book and print real photographs.
There’s something about holding pictures in your hand and smelling the pages of book. It’s a feeling and an appreciation you can’t get from a device. This week, I was in one of those moods.
For my birthday, a few months ago, a friend bought me a subscription to Groovebook, which is a photo subscription service. You download the app, upload the photos you want, and they print and send them to you. I think I’ve printed every image on my phone.
Now, what should I do with them?? I should share them, right? Yep, I’m going to hang them in my living room!
Want to make one?
DIY Photo Frame Materials
- paint brushes
- mini clothespins
- acrylic wood-safe paint
- hot glue gun (not pictured)
- decorative wooden photo frame (Michael’s)
Step 1: paint the frame
Paint both sides of your frame.
Let it dry.
Step 2: measure the string
Stretch the string out to the size of your frame and cut 2 pieces (at the same length).
These will be adhered to the frame to hold up the photos.
Step 3: adhere the strings
Hot glue the string to the frame. Hold the string while the glue dries if you don’t want the string to be floppy.
I know, it doesn’t look beautiful, but no one is going to see it. AND it will make a nice bumper between the frame and the wall.
Step 4: photos and clothespins
Clothespin your photos to the string and you have yourself a cute photo frame!
You can hang your new decor in any room in your house or give it as a gift.
Tip: print your Instagram photos and hang them up!
I’d love to hear what you think!
