Not all Instagram photos are square so if you also want to feature portrait and landscape photos then create a wall art layout of your choice. Simply select any size wall art, decide how many photos from your Instagram feed to use and choose a format. By adjusting the margins, you can create borders between your photos and add colour with our large collection of backgrounds.

Create your own photo wall

Creating a photo wall is easy and will make your Instagram photos really stand out. We recommend creating 4 or 9 separate wall arts (20×20 is best) and then hanging them on your wall in a grid format. Create them all from the same material for a nice and neat aesthetic or use a number of different materials for a more eclectic finish.

This is a great way to replicate your Instagram feed on your wall. Print out your photos straight from your phone and arrange them on your wall in the order that they appear on Instagram. You can also add to this every few months with more photos. Using washi tape to stick up your photos will look chic.

A small photo book is perfect for your Instagram photos because they don’t need to be such high quality. Why not create a photo book with Instagram photos from every year? You can give each one the title of that year and they’ll look nice displayed in your home. Use one photo per page and add the caption and date and you could even add any memorable comments your friends made.
