Displaying Instagram Photos


Aloha Sprinkerinos,

Remember a couple of months ago in July, I wrote a blog post about making a DIY Instagram Collage? In it I talked about my Instagram obsession and how I loved printing out my memories (I used a fabulous service called Printstagram).

Since then, my obsession with the little memory documenting app and printing service has only grown and I have been exploring new ways to display snippits of life throughout my home. 


Ways To Display Instagram Pictures


In Frames

This frame is from dotcomgiftshop and is the perfect fit for the 2x2's. I added the pink bow myself to cover the nail and to add some extra girlieness. Yes, I framed my baby and my beauty products. Is that normal? Haha I doubt it. I don't have too many pictures of Matt on my Instagram account because he's not one for being on camera. I shall have to coax him!

In 'Flick-Thru' Pots

I like to keep the little squares in cute trinket boxes/tins/pots etc in accessible places, so that when we feel in the mood, we can just have a flick through and be reminded of nice things or fun moments. It's also nice to have them when quests pop round as they can be good talking points or something for them to do whilst you make drinks. Just make sure you keep the cringey ones out of reach!

On Pegs

A while back I bought a little bag of mini pegs from eBay with another purpose in mind. That project didn't come to fruition, but when I had my photos delivered, I knew what I wanted to do. Simply bang 2 nails into your wall (or attach some sort of hook), tie a little bit of string/wool/ribbon and voila! An instagram washing line. I think because the prints and pegs are both mini, it looks really cute. Also, you can switch them up and swap them about til your heart's content as the pegs leave no marks. 

In Display Cases

I bought my display case from a home outlet store called 'Home Sense' for under £20 and it was by Cynthia Rowley. I've had a little look on ebay but didn't find you any, so you may have to do some google detective work if you would like one. I have used it to showcase newspaper articles I was in (a little vain I know but I'm proud of myself), trinkets, letters from afar, dried petals and of course, my instagram prints. It lives in our hall and is a great focal point and really draws attention to the things I love and feel passionately about.




I opted to have my photographs printed in 2 inch by 2 inch squares because I feel like it gives a quaint Polaroid touch to them and that floats my boat. I also like that you can slip them into purses and wallets to keep as momentos to make you smile at a glance.


If you're on instragram and are happy for other Sprinklerinos to follow you, feel free to leave you insta-name below. I'm 'Sprinkleofglitr'. It might be fun because we all have something in common and you might make new chums. Also, if you have any ideas for displaying printed instagram photographs, tell me! I'm hooked!!

Toodlepip!!

  31. Monclerはどんな人にも向けのブランド品です。モダンでファッション性も高いです。全体的にニューユークのファッション性を併せてできあがたモノです。女のブランド品ですから、もちろんモンクレール コートもあります!それに、全体からのデザインで角度がちょうどいいですので、き心地が何よりも良いです。さらにフロントの部分にロゴが付いてブランド品の感覚を引き立てる!今世紀、絶対見逃さいブランド品はここで健在!

  32. This is such an adorable idea!! I really want to try it out and I love how the photos are printed on polaroid-like paper. My favorite has got to be on pegs (although I call them clothespins :)

    I have bookmarked your blog post from last time (maybe I should pin it as that is more techno and cooler! Lol) to remind me to print pictures off - so many of my photos are only in digital form and get forgotten - although it's always a hoot to go right back to my early Facebook photos!! Eeek!

  73. Firstly, I ADORE these sorts of blogs from you!! Beautiful ideas.

    Secondly, I wanted to make something for my friend using instagram photos... but obviously I wasnt about to upload her personal photos to my instagram. I created a second, PRIVATE account which I linked to the site I was using... did what I needed to and then deleted all the photos after. Maybe this would be an idea for you to have more photos of Matt and Baby glitter?? Just an idea for you..

  93. wow, this blog is very interesting and elegant. Nice post!!!

    get instagram followers fast

    ReplyDelete
  94. Instagram has many power users with very few tools.
    InstaPower User has more than one tool.
    Follow/Unfollow tool: see how many followers have liked or commented as well as if you follow them back or not.
    Comment response tool: manage your posts, see how many comments and how many replies you have made (included @username in comment)
    Ghost Identification: find the followers who do not comment or like your posts. You can then decide to unfollow or remove one by one or all ghost users.
    Problems Solved.
    Like twitter bots, no need for webstagram, instafrmanger, instafollower
    Why You need it?
    One tool does it all - for real instagram users
    Why fund it?
    I need your help to make it better and to make it succeed.
    How funding will help?
    I am asking for your help to beta test, improve my application, improve the user interface, eliminate bugs and help me create the perfect icon. Any extra funds will help speed up the development time of the iPad and iPhone version. I am really looking to get as many people involved in this project as possible. The success of these apps are solely dependent upon the support of the users.

  104. Buying instagram followers is one of the best decisions you will make in your online marketing. This is because buying the followers gives you very many benefits. For example, when you buy the followers you don’t have to wait several months or years for you to garner a good number of followers. Once you have made a purchase, you need to wait for only a few hours and you will have thousands of followers in your account. Although, buying instagram followers comes with a number of benefits, you should not buy just any followers you come across; you should only buy real instagram followers.
