Hi ladies! We’re mixing it up on Instagram this month and instead of features, today I’m sharing a fun DIY Instagram Ornament project that would make GREAT gifts or stocking stuffers for your family this holiday!
What you’ll need:
- Rectangle wood chips
- Chalkboard paint
- Chalk/chalk pen
- Glue gun/glue
- Baker’s twine
- Instagram photo
And the steps:
- I pained rectangle wood chips with chalkboard paint, waiting an hour between coats until covered.
- After 24 hours of curing, I primed the chalkboards with chalk overall.
- I then hot clued a clip to the top to hold the Instagram.
- I hot glued a loop of baker’s twine to the back to hang.
And you’re done! Cute and easy…just clip in your favorite Instagram photo print (either print at home or these are the 2″ prints from PostalPix) and you can use a chalk pen (or chalk, though I find the pens allow for finer writing), to write whatever comment or phrase you’d like at the bottom. I thought it would be cute to add hashtags #naughty and #nice – fun, right? Just think of how much the grandparents would LOVE some of these of their grandkids, you could even write the kids’ nicknames on them.
I hope you enjoyed that quick little DIY Instagram Ornament project! We’re fond of Instagram around here, so don’t forget to come follow us at @westvalleymoms for glimpses into what fun things are happening on the blog and in our community.
