“I’ve been an instax super fan for over 10 years, having amassed quite a collection of beautiful instax cameras, printers and of course hundreds of prints! instax prints are perfect for personalising a plain wall to your style, adding a touch of creativity and plenty of character. In this blog, I show you everything you need to know to create your own wall art magic! Or click here to download a PDF of my ‘how to’ zine.
An instax photo wall is a super simple and quick way to create wall art in your home, using instax prints. Either keeping it simple with 20 prints or go bold with over 50, it’s completely up to you! Placing the prints in a fun variety of shapes, adds interest and personality.
Wall art is high impact, cool and always has an impressive wow factor that can work in any space. Using your own instax photo prints not only creates an area of interest in your home, but including photos of friends, family, your favourite holiday can really make you feel good.
instax prints in more detail…
instax film comes in 3 different sizes:
- instax mini film: which is the size of a credit card and can be used in any instax ‘mini’ camera or printer, such as instax mini 11, mini LiPlay or mini Link printer
- instax SQUARE film: to be used in any instax SQUARE camera or printer such as instax SQUARE SQ1, SQUARE SQ6 or SHARE SP3 printer
- instax WIDE film: which is double the size of mini film and to be used with the instax WIDE 300 camera
“I really love instax prints as they’re made from real film, meaning they are very durable, have a lovely tactile feel in your hand and the images don’t fade. I like to have tangible prints of my photos rather than locking them away on my camera roll and wall art is a great way to share your memories. If you love to get snap happy, give it a try!”
What you need: instax prints, double-sided stickers and a wall – it’s that easy!
Simple design ideas
If you want a photo wall that is simple, then 20 prints can create some lovely shapes that are super easy to achieve. Try a diamond, heart, checkerboard or corner space design to add a touch of personality to your room.
Say it loud and proud with some fun typography! Words can really pack a punch, and if you have prints to spare, double up on the width for extra impact.
Add a splash of colour by grouping similar coloured images together in your display.
50+ design ideas
Fancy going big and bold? Using 50 prints or more can certainly offer the wow factor to your space. Try a smiley face emoji, star or cool patterns.
Don’t have a large wall space to use? Try a corner space instead. A diamond design wonderwall looks great in a corner – place behind an armchair, or standing lamp for a cool and stylish look.
Give your wall some love & share your designs
