A Wall Collage of Colorful Square Frames

We got inspiration for today’s blog from Sherry and John at Young House Love. They created these cute colorful frames for square note cards and that’s when Inspiration hit us; this display would be perfect for Instagram photos. This display is simple, yet effective and if you love color and simplicity in your home then this display is for you. We are telling you, a square-on-square display looks amazing.   For this display you will need 6 or 8 (depending on your space size) plain white square frames that have a thick boarder. You will be creating a wall collage display in a grid form; either 6 frames (2x rows of 3) or 8 frames (2x rows of 4).     You also need to choose the scrapbook paper colours that will be your background mat. It is best to select colours that compliment your space and your existing colour theme – don’t be scared to do a couple of frames in the same color.     When you have your background colours sorted, add your Instagram prints into the middle of the square frame. To enhance your display even more, try matching your Instagram prints with the background color that will suit it best (but this isn’t essential). Once you have your Instagram photos in your frame you are ready to hang your colorful Instagram frames and enjoy your new display!!   Check out Young House Love for detailed step by step instructions to create this awesome display in your...

Displaying your Instagram prints as a wall collage will always create an incredible bold impact! Nothing says home more than a photo display of loved ones, happy memories and cherished moments, so enhance your homes character and personal flair with your own Instagram wall collage. We have already said how much we love Wall collages; they are fun, interesting and a total reflection of your interests and likes. But, instead of simply putting photos up on the wall, why not go that extra mile. Get your Instagram prints framed and create a sophisticated display. It is important that before you go hammering nails into your wall, that you plan how you will set up your collage. Firstly you need to select your frames. Regardless of their styles, shapes and colors your frames should have some commonality. The more similar base items are (e.g. having all black and white Instagram prints), the more variation you can introduce with the frames. Once you have your frames chosen and your layout sorted, test it on the wall. Stick paper cut outs (the same size as your frames) on your wall. Adjust them around until you have it perfect. Now your ready to hang your frames. We have gathered some awesome  displays for an elegant wall collage that will turn your wall into your personal gallery.   We hope you are inspired to turn your Instagram prints into a sophisticated wall collage...
