diy {origrami chicken wire frame}

I made a chicken wire frame three years ago. It was yellow, located in the playroom and I wrote a tutorial (click here for tutorial). About 2 years ago I painted it red. Last weekend I took it down and moved it to the studio.

Shauna introduced me to Origrami (works with Instagram)…I’m a big fan. The box is sturdy and will be great to store the pictures when I take them down. The back of each picture has the photo date and Instagram info on it. The pictures are printed on a heavy matte paper, not photographic paper. I am very, very pleased with them. They looks fuzzy in this picture for some reason, but I assure you they are really sharp.

I used little clothespins I had on hand from American Crafts.

So the wall isn’t red anymore, but I’ve got a pop of red now. I need to get some more clothespins so I can add more pictures. And I think it needs a garland or two!

  • Natalie, the Chickenblogger - Something about your home,
    and the fun things you do makes me

    a long weekend of crafting and making.
    So… if you ever do open a camp, please

  • Jen - I have been creatively inspired by your blog since the day I started following it, so I thought I’d share a recent project I did with clothespins since you mentioned that you need more of them. I recenly did something similar with a chicken wire frame, clothespins and pictures. I bought mini clothes pins from Michaels and decorated them with random scraps of scrap book paper I had on hand. I used a tape roller to attach the paper and then just trimmed the edges. They turned out great!

  • Necole @seriouslysassymama - Chicken wire is fun. I recently saw them used behind glass on kitchen cabinet doors. Thanks for the photo info. I really need to get my Instagrams printed. I have so many great pics of my girls.

  • angie - I was inspired of your chicken wire frame when I first saw it and a few months ago FINALLY made one for my daughters room. I print instagram pics (will have to check this site out next time I order) I’ve taken of her and her friends or family, our pets.. and she loves hanging them on her frame along with cards and school pictures she gets. So cute and I love how easy it is to switch and move things around.

  • Becca - So pretty 🙂

  • Sarah{Handbags*N*Pigtails} - Oh I love the peek of this corner of your studio in that last picture. Its such a great place to create, you’re very blessed!

  • Kate @ Songs Kate Sang - So cute! Love the pop of red!

  • Catherine - ok, this has nothing to do with chicken wire or instagram, but i read the post linked from and then looked at you projects from 2009, yes, 2009 is still relevant. Anyway, I saw the cork trivit post and the wallpaper you couldn’t find inspiration. So, Layla has that in her bathroom at! You probably know that, but I was excited. whatever, I’m wierd. I hope the link works. It’s really pretty walpaper… I’m not this wierd in “real” life, but I kinda am. Ok… I’m going now.

  • Denise - Yay! I made that chicken wire frame from your tutorial years ago. I have since hung it in the new baby’s room and have been waiting for new inspiration for it. Perfect!

  • RaD - I remember that picture frame… now. I had forgotten about it. But now I think I want to make one… or more. So I have a question. When you stapled the chicken wire to the back did you just use a regular stapler or did you use a more heavy duty one?

  • AshleyAnn - RaD – a more heavy duty one!

  • marci - Love the frame! On a totally different subject, care to share where you got your cute boy that honest Abe t-shirt? Ì love it!

  • amanda - matte photos on paper!? it is all I ever wanted! super cute. thank you for the tip. your life is so full of color! 🙂

  • beth - where/how do have your photos printed in the polaroid look ?

  • tracy a - looks good friend! I love that idea! I will be praying for your flight with little one!

  • Gina - Cute clothespins!! You can find little clothespins in the bare wood section of any craft store and decorate them with some of your washi tape 🙂

  • Briana - I just found your blog and I love it! It appears as if we share a love for color. What a cool way to show photos.

  • Jenny B. - So cute! I had a little Instagram tree at Christmas, and I miss having those pictures up now. I like that this can be enjoyed year-round. 🙂 I printed my Instagrams on my home inkjet printer (a bunch on an 8.5×11 sheet, and then I cut them out). Nothing fancy, but it got the job done. 🙂

  • AshleyAnn - Beth – I used

  • Jen - Love this idea, love the picture frame you used!

  • Erica @ Craftivity Designs - This is so cute and I love the bright color! I featured you today on my Kick-Off Friday Post!!
