This Family Photo Wreath was one of the crafts on display during our TV debuts earlier this week. We had such a fun week sharing our crafts on TV for the first time!
If you were curious about how to make this wreath, wait no longer-I am excited to share my tutorial with you today!
As you can tell from most of my posts, I LOVE crafts using photos of my kiddos and family. It just makes me happy to see their cute faces.
For a little Valentine decor, I thought I would make this family photo wreath.
Supplies you need:
-straight pins or tacks
-black and white photos
-decorative brads that match your paper-(my brads were from the same line as my paper-My Mind’s Eye-found at Roberts.
-ribbon that you love
-both straight and scallop scissors
-& cute scrapbook paper (I found this paper-I LOVE it-at Roberts Arts & Crafts. The had the best selection of cute paper! It is My Mind’s Eye-Lush line)
First, you will want to cut your photos out in circles. You can get creative and use other shapes. I then mounted my black and white photos on cardstock and then I used scallop scissors to give them a fancy edge.
Next you will use your ribbon to wrap the Styrofoam wreath. Start by taking the end of your ribbon and attach with a straight pin or tack. Then begin wrapping the ribbon around the wreath, pulling pretty tight. You will wrap the whole thing (like you are wrapping a bandage or a mummy) until all the white is covered.
Now to attach the photos, just use straight pins around the wreath! Super easy! I used some fancy brads and ribbon to add a decorative touch. I think it would be so cute to make these photo wreaths for various occasions or holidays, birthdays, Christmas, Mother’s Day, etc. If you venture out and make one, we would absolutely LOVE to see it!
