How to Make DIY Wooden Polaroid Displays (+ Video Tutorial)

These beautiful and simple displays are perfect for showing off your favorite polaroids! Plus, they’re easy to make with this additional video tutorial.

I love that you all went crazy over last year’s DIY Wooden Polaroid Gift Set. But there was just one little thing missing for them. A stand!

We solved that problem by making these DIY Wooden Polaroid Displays that make for the perfect desk additions or home decor trinkets. 

And if you want a more polished bedroom touch, try this DIY Wooden Headboard Using Stikwood, perfect for those that aren’t exactly woodworkers but still want the reclaimed wood look.

Even better, you can make the displays in almost no time flat AND DIY along to our second-ever video tutorial for them too!

Steps to Make DIY Polaroid Displays

1 — For the stands, use a vice to grip the wooden blocks so that your hands are a safe distance away from where you’ll be sawing.

2 — Next, use the handsaw back and forth across one side of the block to create a groove about a quarter of an inch deep that’s just wide enough to fit the wooden frame.

3 — Once the groove is cut, you can add a little punch to them by color blocking the sides of the cubes with different colors of your choice with craft paint and a foam brush.
