Rainy days never fail to inspire me so here's another DIY post I did recently for my home - a Floating Instax Gallery Wall!

I've always wanted to display my large collection of Instax photos but I couldn't decide how not to make it look cluttered or too hodgepodge.

Thankfully, after being caved in for several days due to bad weather, I finally came up with a solution.

More after the jump!

instax printer uses
  • a bunch of instax photos or an instax printer and a smart phone so you can print out photos
  • restickable mounting tape so you don't ruin the paint on your walls (if you don't care, just use any kind of strong tape :P)
  • Old (preferably lightweight) picture frames

Pull out the metal tabs used to secure the backing of your frame.

Set aside everything else and just keep the frame.

Attach tape to the back of your frame (as may as you can) and chosen photos

diy instax wall
Arrange strategically on a wall like so...go large or as little as you want!

OR if your frames are super stubborn and don't want to stay up, just lean them on the wall and place your photos above for a more poetic/abstract feel.

Throw in some succulents for maximum hipster effect (i kid. :P)

I love this idea. Will do this with our travel pics soon! I have a bunch of Instax photos and I really don't want to just keep them in an album.

This is a great idea. I don't have an instax but this should also work with our photos.

Beautiful! I have old instax photos I've been meaning to display but got lazy with searching for creative ways to do it. This is such an inspiration. Now I just have to clean our bedroom walls, and start looking for cheap frames. Thank you! :)

What a lovely DIY creation! I wish I were more creative so that I can come up with simple DIY projects at home, too. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres
