DIY: Polaroid photo collage

Polarpid glass frameWhen Harveys Furniture recently sent me some colourful sofa swatches I thought it was about time I got creative for another DIY blog project.

I keep a shoebox full of odds and sods I’ve collected and it’s an Aladdin’s cave of potential craft makes. For this project I delved in and pulled out a few things to complement the purple and teal fabric swatches I was using as my inspiration.

I recently got married and decided I’d create a mixed media collage to frame a couple of my favourite Polaroid photos from the day – one of my bridesmaids and another of me and my flowergirls.

I wanted to create a scrapbook style collage and came up with the idea of framing the finished design in a glass clip frame to hang on the wall. I found a frame from Wilko that suited the theme of my design and loved how the glass front and back preserved my memories almost like pressed flowers.

I arranged the photos on top of the fabric swatches to mount them and layered up patterned craft tape, stickers and embellishments for that scrapbook feel. The swatches were the perfect size for my pictures and helped me achieve the textural look I was aiming for.

The swatches I used are from Harveys‘ ‘Sofas by you’ range – if you’re on the hunt for a sofa this Spring then take a few minutes to complete their quiz to help you discover your interior style and find the sofa shape that’s right for you. You can also find more inspiration on their Pinterest page where I’ve created a collaborative Living Room Inspiration board inspired by my favourite Bloomsbury sofa.

  1. Hi Sarah,
    What lovely creative ideas youve got on here! I love the fairy light and photo lampshade.
    Also just wondering if you could recomend any dance, drama or singing groups in the area. Ive recently moved back to the UK and as ive got work in the ringwood area I thought it may be a good way to meet some like minded people. Im guessing there is more going on in Bournemouth that Ringwood?
