Instagram Mini Canvases

Posted by on


Wondering how to get all those awesome Instagram photos off your phone and into your home? This project is for you!
- Scissors
- Mod Podge
- 4×4 mini canvases
- Brush
- Instagram (or other square) photos

Step 1

Print out your Instagram photos
Pull up the image on your computer, right click and hit 'copy image.' Paste the picture into Microsoft Word or another document and resize to just over 4 inches. Use the rules at the top to make sure the photo is the right size. You can use standard office paper using the printer's photo setting.

Step 2

Cut your photos
Use your mini canvas to make sure the photos are exactly the right size. Alternately, make them slightly smaller and leave a border of the canvas visible, tear the picture edges instead of cutting them or print the photos larger and wrap the picture around the edges of the canvas. Give it the look you want!

Step 3

Mod Podge time
Spread a layer of Mod Podge on a blank canvas, making sure to cover edge to edge. Lay the photo on top and cover evenly with Mod Podge, starting from the center and working outward. This should help prevent wrinkles or bubbles. If you see some sneaking in, carefully lift the corner of the photo to smooth it out.

Step 4

Let dry
The images will look cloudy while the Mod Podge dries, so let them sit for 30 minutes to an hour.

Step 5

Find a great place to display them!
