Happy Labor Day friend. I hope you got to relax this weekend. Saturday was my…
With the advent of digital photography and great cell phone cameras, printed pictures have become somewhat of a thing of the past. How many printed photos do you have in your home since you got your fancy new camera? I’m guilty as charged. I have years worth of pics sitting on my memory card, just waiting to see the light of day. Which is why I decided to do a quick and easy photo wreath craft.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll see the fun pics of the wedding we attended last weekend. Dan got to wear a kilt! Of course I was snapping away at my finely dressed man in that outfit. I decided to print some of the pics and get them up on a wreath for the DIY homasote bulletin board in my office. We made it just like the one in the foyer. It’s been kind of lonely lately and needed some decoration.
This craft is so easy and it’s a great way to show off some of your favorite pictures. The only supplies you need are:
- Printed pictures – I printed mine in color but I bet black and white would be fun too
- A wreath form that is flat – I found this at the craft store but you could definitely make one from cardboard
- Photo mounting squares – Also from the craft store
- Ribbon – Or something to hang the wreath
First, put on a ribbon or some other hanging hardware on the back of your wreath. Sometimes I just glue on a tooth shaped hanger. Since this will be light weight, it would work fine.
Crop your pictures how you’d like. Don’t forget you can make all kinds of shapes and don’t need to stick with the 4×6, so trim off any extra space. I decided to make rounded corners since I liked how it looked. You can get a corner rounder at the craft store along with your wreath and photo corners.
Then arrange them on the wreath in any order, making sure they are secured to the wreath with the photo squares.
That’s about it! Hang your wreath with pride, you just completed a craft in under 15 minutes.
Come see all the other fun projects at Craft Lightning at The Country Chic Cottage. Apparently I’m on a sentimental craft kick, because on the last craft lightning I showed how to frame your travel memories. That was fast and easy too!
