Don’t you just love photo walls? Is is by no way a new thing but I have always just loved thousands of photos all in one place. The walls of my bedroom growing up were always covered floor to ceiling with pictures. I would say I’m a pretty nostalgic person. After a lot of research and one failed attempt at Walgreens, I decided to go with Printstagram to get a crap load of our instagram pictures printed. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the printing, paper or service. It’s quick, easy and relatively cheap (and there is an app!!).
I tried out like 3 different tapes, tabs, etc… to adhere the pictures to the wall. In the end, the thing that worked the best was 3M blue tape balls on the back. I didn’t want to use anything that would damage the wall or the pictures.
I started out with a level line of tape that I used as a guide for the first row of pictures. After that I just eyed balled all of them. Here is the first progress shot…
Rowan loves sitting on the stairs telling me about each picture. Always saying “Member that Mommy?”. I will be the first to admit that i’ve become completely obsessed with getting instagram pictures printed now.

i love instagram photo walls and the idea to stick them to the wall by the stairs is great. i would totally sit there and look at the pics like rowan does, too.
Oooh, I’m thinking I need to do this to one of our walls… great to hear you found a tape that works so well. I’ve been trying to figure out how I would attach all the photos to our wall without doing any major damage!! xo
love this jen! i bet rowan loves looking at all of the pictures. so sweet!
I love this! Such a great DIY. I’m also going to check out Printsagram. I tried printing Instagrams via Shutterfly and it did not work out (pictures all cut off). I have so many Instagrams pics that I would love to get into frames.
How fun for the girls to be able to look back on those special moments captured on film so easily!
That is such a precious way to add something special to the walls! I am dying over that ballet leotard picture. It’s too cute!
Stop. I love this. Totally inspired.
It looks great!
Love your instagram wall Jen! I would love to do this!
How cool! I love it! My room was always filled with photos too 🙂 love how they can bring you back to a nice moment in the past
Ooooooo. I LOVE this!! You did such a great job. After I saw this I literally went running around my house trying to find a wall where I could do the same thing. My husband often teases me about how many pictures I take because he thinks I am never going to do anything with them but I’ll show him!!
PS – I love that you just did tape balls to put the pictures up. I often think that other Mom bloggers have magic powers up their sleeves so it is good to know that some things are within my reach. 😉
I love this! I’m trying to think of where I can do one so my almost crawling daughter can’t rip it down
OKâ€¦I have to do this! Instagram has become my very favorite social media, and I would love to put something like this together. Thank you for sharing the site, I’m going to go over and see what I can do! 🙂
PS Rowanâ€¦Why does she look like she is 8 years old to me? So mature and adorable. Levi is a bit older than her, but always seems months behind! (BOYS! :))
Love that you did this on a staircase…too cute! What a wonderful way to share memories with your little ones, I’ll bet they love showing it off to guests. =)
so cute! what a great design and perfect place to put them. love!
I’m going to tackle a similar project. Has the tape you used held over time or are you wishing you had gone with something stronger?
I love this.. we have been waiting to do something similar for some time now.. I’ve just been too lazy 🙁
