friday creative: holiday edition #5

can you believe it's week 5 of our holiday friday creatives already? and now that we've had a lovely thanksgiving, i feel like i can start decorating for christmas! so i've preempted the project i had originally planned for today to bring you this wonderful project from the latest issue of the lovely country living magazine...a photo wreath. i just fell in love with this idea! i think it is a great idea for the holidays and a fabulous gift idea too!supplies:
-wreath form (they come in wire or craft board...i recommend the craft board if you can find it because it's easier to adhere photos to the flat surface)
-strong liquid adhesive (like Quick Grip or Zip Dry)
how to:
-first make copies of any photos that are precious originals. i used some copies of special older photos of my family and some of my favorite recent holiday photos.
-arrange photos on wreath form. once you're happy with the look, adhere with a small amount of adhesive (a small amount so photos don't warp).
-tie ribbon in a bow or knot as desired and adhere to the back of the wreath form.
-hang and enjoy!

happy friday!
xo, carly
