DIY father’s day instant photo art from access hollywood live

Pin It

  another Father’s Day DIY i did today on Access Hollywood Live! it’s a really fun, interactive project that you can do for other occasions besides Father’s Day, i love displaying photos this way! but today we’re celebrating Dad, so cut out some mustache shapes and break out that instax camera!

you might spot the photos i snapped on Access Hollywood Live this morning to complete the project… Billy Bush, Kit Hoover and Richard Marx (of 80′s music fame), all with their cardboard cut-out mustaches on shish-kabob sticks!

   

Prep It:

  • cardboard
  • empty frame
  • wire – i used twine covered floral wire from the craft store
  • upholstery nails
  • shish kabob sticks or chopsticks
  • hot glue
  • black marker
  • clothes pins
  • hammer
  • wire cutters
  • scissors
  • pliers
  • hot glue gun
  • instax camera optional (i got the wide one), you could just print digital photos on photo paper

DO IT:

  1. measure enough space for your clothes pin and your photo size and make marks where you will place your nails and wire on either side of the frame.
  2. hammer in your upholstery nails leaving some space to wrap your wire.
  3. wrap your wire around and secure the twist with a pinch of the pliers – stretch the wire across and secure around the opposite nail creating a taught and secure place to hang your pics. you may want to hammer your nail in a little more after you’re done twisting the wire.
  4. cut out mustache shapes from your cardboard and color them black with your black marker and hot glue them to a shish kabob stick (cut off the pointy end of the stick with your wire cutters).
  5. then get all your family members and dad to pose for fun and funny pics to clip to your wires with your clothes pins! CUTE!
