DIY-ify: Show off those family photos!

How do you showcase your photos from the year? Well, I love how Better Homes and Gardens shared their photos on a wreath and I want to share how you can create your own version of this!

How to:

- Pick out your wreath. Live or artificial? I love the smell of live wreaths, but an artificial wreath will last longer.

- Print out your favorite family photos. The size will depend on the size of your wreath.

- Create 5 bows with some pretty and festive ribbon.

- Attach your bows and ball ornaments to the wreath. If you have a live wreath: tie the ribbon and ball ornaments on with wire. If you have an artificial wreath: you can still attach these with wire, or make it super simple and hot glue on the embellishments.

- Using your clothespins, clip on your photos.

- Hang and enjoy!

Now everyone can enjoy your photos! If you did take your OWN holiday photos this year, I have a Holiday Photo Challenge going on RIGHT now. You could win some neat prizes, and you don’t have to have a blog. You’ll just need someway to share your photo (flickr, tumblr, instagram…). If I’ve captured your interest, you can click here for a bit more info. I hope to see you!

  2. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Wonderful blog!
