You know school photo packs where you get a million pocket-sized photos of your child? They are the perfect size for this craft. These photo decoration make wondering gifts for grandparents and other family members. I’ve made these types of wreaths many times with buttons, small seeds, wool, and pipe cleaners. This time, I used diamantes (available in craft/discount store) but you can use whatever you like to decorate the wreath.
What you need
- Plastic curtain eyelet rings (available from places like Spotlight)
- Craft glue
- buttons, pom poms, deamantes or other items to decorate
Glue your decorative items on to the flat part of the eyelet.
2. Cut your photo to size and glue to the back of the wreath, with the front of the photo showing through.
3. Add string or ribbon to tie. I find it best to tie a knot close to the ring first, and then tie a knot in the end to hang.
Make sure you write the date on the back of the photo so when you put the Christmas tree up, you can remember the year.
If you don’t want to bother using eyelets (although, this makes it really quick and easy), I have included a template you can use. You’ll want to cut out your circle on sturdy card, although not too thick so you can’t cut it. For the template, simply click the template image below or click here.
