DIY: Pinterest-Inspired Project for Polaroid Style Picture Display

DIY frame with patterned tape to display polaroid style pictures on wall in bedroom

Remember all those posts ago when I wrote a post about a craft project that was actually supposed to feature a different craft project? (Quick refresher for you here.)  Well, here’s the craft project that one was supposed to be about – a DIY project I saw on Pinterest and decided to carry out at home.

Here’s what I used/had available during this craft project: 

  • Washi tape in black and white (I got mine from a department store, similar on eBay for £1.50) and also in bright colours* £2.93 per roll from 3M Scotch (pictured, but I ended up not using the bright coloured tape this time around)
  • Kitty tape dispenser*, £8.99 from 3M Scotch (pictured)
  • Polaroid-style Instagram prints, £12 for 48 prints from Polagram
  • Twine, available at any craft store; I got mine for approximately £2 from Tiger
  • Mini clothes pegs, available at any craft store; I got a set for approximately £1 from Tiger
  • Frame; I used the Nyttja from IKEA, £7

Steps: 

  1. Tie the twine to the frame where I wanted the pictures to hang and also a bit at the top to hang it on the wall.
  2. Cover the entire frame with paper tape, making sure the twine ties were well and truly secure.
  3. Pin the pictures to the twine.
  4. Hang on the wall

Tada!

This project was really easy (just 3 steps before hanging on the wall!) and I think it is a really lovely way to display a bunch of pictures in one frame and I love how it looks in our bedroom. As for all the left over pictures? Well, those went in the scrapbook, of course!

Please note: while the products marked with a star (*) in this blog post were gifts, the views expressed are my own.
