Instagram Canvas Wall Art

DIY INSTAGRAM CANVAS WALL ARTI whipped this project up for our home last week. We have moving on the brain, so all of the home decor projects I'm taking on this summer will be super easy to transport to a new space! I think summer is a great time for home decor project, don't you? 

DIY SUPPLIES1. Supplies Needed: Instagram photos (I used 4×4 prints provided by PostalPix a great app for printing your instagrams and having them sent right to your doorstep!), a canvas (I used a 12×12 canvas, perfect fit for 9 4×4 photos!), Matte Mod Podge and a paint brush. 2. Arrange your photos. Experiment with placement until you're happy! 3. Adhere the photos to your canvas with Mod Podge. I like to start in the corners and work my way in. 4. Seal with an extra coat of Mod Podge if you like. Let it dry completely and display it in your home! 

DIY INSTAGRAM CANVAS WALL ART 2There you have it! Quick, easy and a nice option for renters (and those planning to move) compared to this project. I may even do a much.much.much larger version before the summer has ended! Hope you are having a great week! We're enjoying our last day in Hawaii now (I'm squeezing in this blog as Jeremy naps!) It's been incredible…. xoxo. Elsie 

  • Does the Mod Pog go over the pictures or under? I love this idea, but I don’t want to mess it up! 🙂




  • This is so cute idea and I am going to try this for sure..Thanks for this lovely idea..

  • such a beautiful idea…. and I might just be addicted to postalpix app!

  • Aww, so cute! Love the idea..!!

  • so great!! do you know other apps like postal pix as in italy is not possible to use it….

  • Hi to all, how is the whole thing, I think every one is getting more from this web page.

  • Great Idea! BTW, I am loving your blog. I love how you put so many different elements together. You are really creative and I love your style!

  • This is such a cute idea! I have some canvases that need using, and I think I just found the perfect way to use them:)

  • Why does it matter if they promote eachother. She says all of the time that things are her friends ideas. Maybe she forgot to or maybe this was her idea and since she was on vacation he posted first. Why does it make a difference? He is sharing tons of creative things with you all of the time. Not everyone read both blogs so not everyone has seen it. It’s not like it was the most crzy ingenious idea. People don’t need to be rude. Just don’t read her blog if you don’t like that not all of her ideas are original.

  • Great post! Such a cute project for instagram prints. I will definitely try it. I think Instagram Prints look great. I recently ordered print from Bumblejax and it came in a bamboo mounting. It is really nice. You can check their service here:

  • I love this, i’m totally doing this, I love the effects you can do on Instagram and now i can see them on my wall!

  • Hey Elsie,
    Ill just say, Your blog makes me happy each day!!

  • This is SO cute! I just started following your blog. It’s a bit overwhelming, there are so many cool things, but I love it!

    Thanks for sharing!!


  • I love this idea! I am an instagram addict so this seems like fun. =)

  • Thanks for the tip. I just downloaded Postal Pix!

  • Thanks for the tip about Postal Pix. I just downloaded the app!

  • Very cool! I love all your posts about using photos to decorate – so inspirational!

  • That is really pretty! What a great idea! 🙂


  • This is awesome! I hadn’t really thought about making my Instagram shots analog but now I have an even better reason to keep snapping away!


  • Great idea!:) Where did you get the canvas? I can’t find any at good prices!

  • Finally, a fun (yet simple) way to display all my extremely artistic instagram photos!

  • I would suggest getting the 4×4 canvases from Michaels, that way you can move them around and whatnot, or switch them out with other images.,default,pd.html?cgid=products-artsupplies-canvas-backstapled&start=15

  • Can’t seem to find Postal Pix anywhere – on my phone or in iTunes – help? 🙂 Thank you – love the idea!

  • I’ve just seen your wedding feature in Mollie Makes too! Great wedding and great magazine!

    Lovely project here too!


  • So cute and clever!

  • I’m still having a hard time coming up with something to make….

  • Great project. Colby did the same thing a few days ago… interesting.

  • Hey Elsie thanks for the great post!

    After I saw this on your blog, I started researching what other fun things you can do with your Instagram photos. There are so many things !!

    I made a list of ten of my favs, most of them aren’t diys, but many of them could be!

    Check it out and post comments if you like it!!!

  • Too cute! Love the instagram photos! I just did a similar project inspired by an Urban Outiftters canvas. You can see it here if you want to take a peek! 🙂

  • I’ve been obsessed with taking pictures since then.Enjoy

  • Such a great project… my bf is graduating college this weekend and I’m still having a hard time coming up with something to make… we too are moving this summer so this maybe the perfect gift!


  • I had no idea this app existed!! It’s already downloaded and ready to go now! Thanks for sharing!

  • I’m so excited to try this now that I have instagram for my Android phone. I’ve been obsessed with taking pictures since then. This will be fun.

  • Its lovely. And i love having photos everywhere, but its nice to be a little bit more creative than just blu-tac 🙂


  • I don’t use instagram, but it’s a great collage anyway 🙂

  • Such a lovely idea!

    I must ask, the font used in the last image, what font is that. I love it.

  • I just started using Instagram…can’t wait to have a good collection of pictures and to make my own Canvas Wall Art!

  • Hello Elsie! I don’t know if you read all of your comments but how do you print these pictures? Do you print it yourself at home with special paper and a good printer? Or a photograph do it for you?

  • Oooh I love this! I’m going to do this for my room now^^
    Rawrs, Evey

  • Truly, you have a God given gift of creativity! You keep crankin’ out great ideas! Needless to say, I love this to death. Thanks!


  • oh, i feel like making several of these. adorable!

  • I just twitted about your post! Loving it


  • Such a cute idea Elsie! I can’t wait to stop showing off my Instragrams too!


  • I’m not a big DIY-er, but this is totally doable and I will definitely be trying this project this summer with the tons of Instagram photos I love 🙂 Thanks for the idea and steps!


  • What a COOL idea!! Thanks for sharing. I’m definitely doing this some time soon!

  • I think it’s interesting how Instagram has become the new photography. I love this collage! Waves of the future!

  • I’ve seen this before, oh wait: interesting that you both live in the same town and promote each other.

  • Cool on a bigger canvas. We did a similar project on 4×4 canvases a couple weeks ago!

  • I love it! I must try very soon!
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Oooh I love this! Now just have to wait for Postalpix to be available for android 🙁

  • such a great and simple idea!!

  • It’s a great idea! Too bad that you took it from your friend Colby Kern at He just shared this a few days ago. Maybe you two are just on the same brain wave. Not likely though…shame.

  • I just ordered a round of 4×4 instagram pictures through postal pix from my first year of college and I’ve been wondering what to do with them! This is such a fun way to display them! Love it! <3

  • This is just a cute post. You have the best ideas. Lovely.

  • Can you help me? I don’t have iphone but I would love to print 4×4 or even 6×6 photos. Do you know of any websites that can print these and ship?

    Thanks 🙂

  • Aw!
    Love this idea!


  • Looks fantastic! I love your instagram photos! Have you ever tried making your own Modge Podge?

  • So cute! I’m bookmarking this to do on a rainy day! 🙂

  • Wat too cool:)

  • Great! Just joined instagram and only have a few pics up, but will do this when I have enough to choose favs!

  • I LOVE this…what a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing. 🙂

  • (Just wanted to add that what you did would look great on a lid of a keepsake box as well or as a laminated placemat! Gah, now you’ve got me thinking in craft mode…)

  • I still can’t use insagram, so I might modify this by printing pictures from my computer, cutting them accordingly, and making a canvas collage! I’ve been re-vamping my boyfriend’s apartment, and this would work perfectly. Enjoy Hawaii!
