How to Create An Instagram Collage in 6 Easy Steps

A lot of us use Instagram to share slices of our daily lives with family and friends online but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to bring your gorgeous shots to life offline as well? Here is an easy DIY Instagram Collage Project. Create themed collages of the kids, the house, your travels, the possibilities are limitless. An attractively framed themed collage canĀ  brighten your home or make an excellent gift!

Creating an Instagram Collage

Step 1: Select photos from your Instagram account to print. Tip: consider creating themed collages, pics of the kids taken over the last year make great, inexpensive gifts the Grandparents will cherish.





Step 2. Print the photos onto white paper. Using photo paper will give your creation a more polished look.

4. Grab a piece of white foam board or poster board. The size will depend on how many photos you have printed. Use a thin application of glue to arrange and paste the photos onto the board.

Step 6. Find a frame that will fit your collage, I find a lot of nice frames really inexpensively at yard and rummage sales that are perfect for this sort of project. You might also consider giving your project an ultra polished look by adding a pre-cut mat that you can pick up really inexpensively at your local crafting store.
