DIY Wooden Polaroid Gift Set — These DIY Wooden Polaroid Gift Sets are simple and inexpensive and great for displaying or preserving those perfect memories.
One time I made my dad a refrigerator magnet out of oven bake clay in the shape of his truck with a stick figure of him as the driver and our dog in the back.
The funny thing is our dog never rode in the back of my dad’s truck. I made his body twelve different colors. And had my dad wearing bib overalls which he doesn’t even own.
I don’t mean to brag, but clearly I’ve been an aspiring artist from a young age. Hah! However, modern day guys should get a Valentine’s gift that’s a little better suited than oven bake clay, am I right?
These DIY wooden polaroids sets are simple, inexpensive and a homemade gift your guy might not secretly want to throw away.
You can personalize them by making them into magnets, writing love notes at the bottom, or just filling them with your favorite memories together.
Either way, it’s gotta be better than my magnetic truck!
Materials Needed To Make A DIY Wooden Polaroid Gift Set
Personal photos — Trimmed at about 2 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ to mimic a polaroid.
Gift box — To hold your photos
Optional: Mini circle magnets — If you want the option to hang them on the fridge
How To Make A DIY Wooden Polaroid Gift Set
Print out your photos on matte photo paper. The size depends on the frame that you use.
Spread tacky glue on one side of a wooden polaroid frame. Position the frame over the photo and press firmly on all corners.
Next, cut any excess paper around the outside of the frame.
If you want to turn them into magnets, you can glue a magnet onto the back of the photo on the bottom part where the wooden edge is thickest.
Write little notes from your adventures at the bottom, package them in a box, and they’re ready for gifting!
