Pinterest Project ~ Instagram Heart

I just love how this turned out!  Devon has had a big blank wall in her bedroom for awhile now.  We wanted to copy this picture we found on Pinterest:

Another Pinterest inspiration that just never came about because I didn't want to spend a couple hundred bucks on frames.  Not to mention finding pictures that work with the direction of the frames.

Finally I came across this picture:

Devon loves Instagram so this was perfect for her room.  Walgreens has an app that you can directly upload your Instagram pictures and order for pick up in an hour.  These are 4 x 4 and cost .39 each.  You need 53 pictures for this heart.  I wanted to hang them with double sided tape but Steve didn't like that idea.  He found these :

I am the worst when it comes to hanging things so Steve took over this project.  That's how it works in my house. I find the projects and he does them!  We started with the middle row and centered the middle picture on the wall.

After the middle row was hung we worked our way up.  Steve used a level that had a ruler on the top.  There is 1/2 inch between the pictures.

There are two rows that you hang off center or in the middle of the pictures above.

One thing you will notice, Devon loves taking selfies! She also loves how this turned out.  One Pinterest project down.  Thousands more to go!
