I’m a huge fan of decorating with hashtags. Whether it’s #SquadGoals or #FamilyTime, sometimes all you need is a hashtag to perfectly describe how you’re feeling. That’s why, when I saw these awesome wood place card holders, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a fun hashtag DIY picture holder! I love that there are so many different ways to customize this project. You can change out the colors, stickers, or hashtag to reflect your own personal style. You could even make this as the perfect end of year gift for your #Girlfriends or #BestTeacher!
Supplies needed to make your own hashtag DIY picture holder:
- David Tutera Wood Place Card Holders
- Acrylic Craft Paint – I used:
- Salmon Pink Paint
- Citrus Green
- Mini Alphabet Letter Stickers
Before you start painting, you’re going to have to decide on the specific colors and hashtags you want for the picture holder. I wanted something bright and colorful so I went with turquoise, salmon, and lime but going minimal with all one color is also an option. You could even paint different designs over each color if you really want something bold! Once you’ve decided on the color, you can begin painting the cubes. You may have to do a couple coats to cover completely. Allow to dry.
Once the cubes have dried completely, you can begin to stick the letters in place. I didn’t have a problem with the stickers I linked in the supply list above but if you find that your letters aren’t sticky enough you can use an additional bit of glue on the back.
Since the sticker letter sheets didn’t have a hashtag, I had to get creative! I used four lowercase “L” stickers to make a quick little hashtag mark. Just stick in place on the last block and you’re done!
Now that your Hashtag Picture Holder is done, all you have to do is fill it with pretty pictures or inspirational pieces to complete the look!
I loved using bright colors for this project but could totally see it in black and white with gold letters as well! How would you paint it?
Hope you enjoy making this hashtag DIY picture holder for you and all your squad!
