Insta Thanks

Use the Instagram craze to show your gratitude this fall! The instagram craze is everywhere!

I love snapping photos of my day & sharing with friends. This fall, I’ve decided to use Instagram to show my gratitude. Read on for three fun ideas on how to display your gratitude using Instagram images:

First, you’ll want to decide how to print your images.  Keep in mind that Instagram shots are squared, and aren’t high resolution. So stay small for the sharpest prints! Several online printers are offering Instagram printing, or you can simply upload & print at home. For this project, I resized each photo to 4 inches x 4 inches, and added journaling directly to image in my photo editing program.

Gratitude under Glass
Slip your Instagram photos beneath a sheet of glass on a coffee table. You can use a sheet of glass from a picture frame, or purchase a piece at most home building stores. Add in season shapes and colorful leaves.

Creating a banner

Create a Gratitude Banner
Instagram prints are the perfect size for creating a banner of gratitude. Back each Instagram print with cardstock, and adhere to ribbon of bakers twine. Use to accent a fall mantel, or drape across a table runner.

A Thankful Tray
Use a wooden tray as a gratitude centerpiece. Use wire photo holders to secure your Instagram prints, and surround with fall potpourri or leaves.
How will you show off your gratitude this season? We’d love to see!
