Family Photo Wreath-Valentine’s Day Style

Black and white photos mounted on red and white scrapbook paper and made into a wreath, huge from a wreath holder.

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 to make this Family Photo Wreath:

Black and white photos cut into circles with red and white scrapbook paper in the background.

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. Styrofoam wreath form with red ribbon attached with two brads.

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.Styrofoam wreath form with red ribbon wrapped around it to make a family photo wreath.

When you are finished wrapping, pin with straight pins. Now that the whole wreath is wrapped, you are ready to add the photos!Wreath form with red ribbon wrapped around it to make a family photo wreath as a gift.

I just played around with my photos until they were in a great place. I liked the close ups staggard throughout the other photos. Red ribbon wrapped wreath with black and white family photos laid around it.

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!Attaching black and white family photos to a wreath with decorative brads and ribbon.

  1. I am very excited to try this – I’m actually going to make it for my neighbor as a gift! I think she’ll love it

  2. Which one is easier? This Family Photo Wreath-Valentine’s Day Style or the Vintage Paper Chandelior with the pics dangling? This will be my first craft in a long time! They’re both so pretty and fun!

    1. I think the Chandelier is a bit more time consuming (all the folding) but I’m sure you will be able to do either-both were easy and you really can’t mess up! Good luck Emily!

    1. So many people asked where you got the wreath holder and the circle and wreath sizes….I can’t see where you answered.

      1. Hi Mindy,
        I believe Jamie got the wreath holder at Tai Pan or Rod Works which are home decor stores in the western US. The wreath can really be any size the creator wants. I believe her’s is a 16″ wreath and the circles are 4′ or so. You can really do what works best for you.

  11. I saw a few other questions like mine but it didn’t look like they got answered. So here it goes:
    -where did you find the display stand that the wreath is hanging on?
    -what size is the wreath?
    -what size are the photos and thus the paper circles?

  12. I have never done crafts before & wonder how u attach the photos to the card stock & then to the wreath. Do I push the straight pins through from the front straight into wreath.?? Won’t that damage the photos??

    Thank you

  24. As a diy crafter I have a few answers to some questions that have been asked. So here goes:

    Question: What size wreath did you use?
    Answer: Find a wreath you like to use and work with. Or don’t use one at all.
    What I did was I used a cup that looked like a good size. I traced it and cut it out it ended up being 4 1/2 inches across. I needed 9 circles to complete my circle.

    Question: Where did you find the tabletop wreath holder?
    Answer: The ones that I have been able to find are kind of one the expensive side. $30-$50! So I started thinking, of other things that I would be only to use. My answer: jewelry tree holder. Which you can buy just about anywhere. They cost about $20, AND you can use the jewelry holder throughout the year!

  25. To glue the picture to the scrapbook paper you can either use Modge Podge or a glue runner tape. Use can also use MP as a top coat.

    Question: How do you connect the circles together and to the wreath.
    Answer: Well, I didn’t use a styrofoam wreath. I just put my circles together using pretty brads, which are paper fasteners. The paper is a little bit bigger than the picture, so when using the brads it doesn’t mess up the picture. You could use a really long ribbon and weave it in and out through the pictures and have enough to tie a bow at the top.

  26. So cute, doing this for a Christmas gift for my mom with all the grandkids. For 9 photos what size wreath did u use and what inch setting did u use on Ur circle cutter? Tks so much.

  27. Just made one of these today for my Mom for Christmas with baby pics of my sister and I. Can’t wait to hear how much she loves it. Such a cute and easy thing to make and not time consuming at all, only took up part of my little guys nap. Found this on pinterest.thanks for the great idea!

  28. this is such a cute idea that i plan on doing but was curious approx how much ribbon it takes it go around the wreath. thank you for any info you can provide

  29. So very artistic, in other words very darn pretty, I have heaps of photo’s of my grandkids so maybe a nice idea to make one each for the parents and maybe myself! Thank you for sharing:>)
