DIY Holiday Gifts with Printique

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama

This post is for the crafty ones, the ones that go down their own path, that love a great creative challenge. It’s thanks to you we offer these fun DIY Holiday Gifts you can make with Printique products. These are inspired by Printique Members.

Pallet Art


This pallet project comes to us from instagram member  @courtdavis23. She tells us how she made the pallet frames and then used Printique photo prints on silk paper to finish the project.

“First we started off by dissembling the skids. Once we had enough pieces, they were cut into 20 inch lengths. My husband then used a biscuit joiner to cut slots into the sides of the pallets, glued biscuits into the slots and then clamped 6 pieces together (each one ended up being 20 x 21.75 in). Once those dried, we watered down the stain (Minwax Espresso) to get the desired color. Once they dried, we nailed 2 paint stirrers to the back so the velco mounting strips had a smooth surface to adhere to. Then we nailed in 2 clips so the 12 x 12 pictures would be centered. This is the first time I’ve ordered pictures using the silk paper from Printique and I love them!! We also added the single weight mounting so the pictures wouldn’t curl up.” – @courtdavis23

Map Art


Do you have a case of wunderlust? If so combining vintage maps with Printique photo prints is the perfect way to remember your travels. This next idea comes to us from Instagram member @gillianandmomo.


“I have always loved maps and use them to decorate my house. I’m also a traveler. I have traveled to many countries and after I met my husband, Miguel, we have had many adventures traveling around the US, specifically the MidWest. We are working on filling the entire United States map up together. Seeing how few states have pictures now motivates me to keep planning trips.  Our next trip planned is to Seattle and a weekend adventure to Nashville is also on our radar. Printique has been the perfect place to get the high quality prints in the right size we need for our travel map.”- @gillianandmomo


Acrylic Decorating


Looking for something out of the ordinary? Try using an acrylic print as a vanity tray.  This next idea comes to us from instagram member @studio32.
“I was looking to add dimension to counter in the bathroom,. I made a custom marble acrylic with standofffs as a vanity tray. To achieve this look, measure the space where you would like to have a vanity tray. Next find the best fit under Printique Acrylics, and make sure to add the stand offs. You can add your own art or even a fun graphic. “- @studio32
