I began by converting some of my favorite pictures to black and white and cropping them to the appropriate size for the frames (1 1/2 X 2 inches). I used a publisher program to do this. Once I had my selected photos printed and cut out I assembled them into the frames.
I then cut strips of white organza ribbon for the hangers. Using my glue gun, I looped the ribbon crossing the ends and hot glued to the back of the frame right over the magnet.
I already had a 3ft tree which I strung with a strand of white twinkle lights and placed in a hand woven basket. It is so much fun to shop your home for items you need!! I supported the base of the tree with some heavy items and covered it up with scraps of white burlap (my favorite). Added some pinecones to the top and hung the framed ornaments.
It’s the perfect holiday addition to our family room and the white lights provide the perfect amount of twinkle for the corner.
This would be the perfect gift for my mom with pictures of all the grandkids! I think she would love it! Since the ribbon is glued to the back of the frame you can still remove the photos and add new ones year after year. I only used the square and oval frames for this project and plan to use the heart shaped ones for gift toppers – what a cute little addition to a package! Enjoy! XOXO
