The Scenery

Crafts, crafts, crafts!

My recent creation for our travel themed wedding is a sign composed of our instagram photos and … our wedding hashtag!

So long disposable cameras, hello hashtags! You either love them or hate them. Personally, I think it’s kind of cool to have all of the photos taken by your guest lumped into one easy-to-find category, but that’s just me. 🙂

Either way, here’s how I did it!

Instagram sign

I had already created and printed my instagram poster so the next step was to work on the frame itself. I started with an old cork board that I’ve had for YEARS. I stripped all of the cork off the board, which wasn’t to difficult since it was all ready peeling off.

All right. Time to turn the old into new! I used my trusty glue gun, some burlap ribbon, and white paint to cover the old ugly frame.

 

Crafts

I painted the whole thing white, covering up all of the wood.

 

Paint

After the paint dried, I used flat thumb tacks to attach the poster to the frame. I wanted to be able to remove it in case I wanted to use the frame for something else in the future. You never know what I’ll do next! 🙂

I then measured out the burlap ribbon. I wanted it to fit the frame without covering any of the poster. In the end I had to double up the ribbon before hot gluing it to the frame.

Burlap Ribbon

And there you have it! It was probably the easiest thing that I’ve created so far haha! Hopefully it survives the trip to our wedding in Utah!
