Instagram photo frame
How adorable is little Kermit in his denim shirt!! This picture of him always reminds me of one of those employee photo's on a keycard, what job do you think he has? IT specialist? Accountant? :)
I wanted to make a photo frame for my Instagram shots, a sort of wooden polaroid and came up with this. A rectangular piece of timber hold up by a dowel. It's all made out of scrap pieces I had left over so it didn't cost me anything to make, even better! This photo frame would make a great handmade Christmas present for the Instagram fanatic in your life. The frame takes around 40 minutes to make so you can make a whole lot of them! Have a look at my tutorial video.
You need a piece of timber 15x18 cm, a dowel piece of 14cm, a coping or fret saw, a drill, sand paper, some washi tape and a photo printed to 10x10cm. You can of course make a larger or smaller frame just make sure the photo square is always 1 cm smaller then your photo. I made this frame from a left over piece of plywood from my kitchen build, you can use any timber you have. Maybe you have a floor board left over or a piece of chip board? An old cupboard door will work nicely as well. Have no timber left in your shed? Just purchase a 15cm wide plank from your local DIY store.
Are you going to make some of your Christmas gifts yourself? What Instagram shot is your favourite and deserves a special frame? Would love to see it! My dog is seriously photo obsessed if you want to see regular Kermit shots follow me on Instagram, you can find me on @byhestergrams. I'll be back next week with a new tutorial do let me know if you have any Christmas crafts you want to see xx Hester
