Rock Garden Photo Display
I’ve had my eye on one of these Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 70 Instant Cameras for a bit. I didn’t have to think twice about working with them when asked and was excited to try it out. (Keep reading for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card!)
My garden is bursting with blooms and I thought it would be fun to snap a few photos of my favorite flowers with the Fujifilm Instax Mini 70. I love the small photos it instantly creates and thought they’d be adorable for this Rock Garden Photo Display I had wanted to make. This way I can enjoy my own garden all year long.
Making a rock garden for simple photos creates an artistic stylish way to display whatever Instax photos you happen to be taking. You could step it up a notch and gather rocks from your summer adventures, along with snapshots from each location, then display your photo with it’s matching rock. Fun right?
I wanted to paint my rocks to match my office for my year round Rock Garden Photo Display. I love the color mixed with the copper wire.
How to Make a Rock Garden Photo Display
- Spray Paint – I used a metallic color called Rose Gold.
- Wire – 20 gage works the best. It’s easy to work with and can handle the weight of the photo.
- Rocks – I just grabbed some rocks out of our flowerbeds.
- Wire Clippers
- INSTAX Mini 70 Instant Camera and photos
- Using your Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 70 Instant Camera, take as many photos so you have a few to choose from.
- Spray paint your rocks. I spray painted one side, let it dry for about 10 min, then sprayed the other side.
- Cut a piece of wire and wrap it around your rock. Use the needle nose pliers to twist the wire so it’s snug. I have to admit, it took me a few tries. Be care of the wire flopping around. If it’s long enough, it could hit you in the face… or eye! Once a safety mom, always a safety mom.
- Determine how high you want your photo to stand and cut the wire accordingly. Leave enough room to create the curly section.
- I used a sharpie to tightly twist the wire around a few times. Your photo will slide between the wires, so you want them tight.
- Set on your table and slip the photo into place. Enjoy!
These are whimsical, so don’t worry about them looking perfect.
