This project is also known as: the perfect holiday craft for moms who would rather be drinking. Quick, easy, and can be completed almost entirely using 1 hand!
- Pictures. 4×6’s work well
- Cardboard, card stock, poster paper or other sturdy material from which to construct your wreath. I used $.98 poster board from Target (because I’m cheap, didn’t feel like painting cardboard, and I love Target.)
- Hot glue gun
- Ribbon, optional
Step 1: (Anyone else humming Inspector Oso in their head right now? “Three special steps, that’s all you need…” No? Just me? Moving on.)
Cut out a wreath from your poster board/cardboard. No need for perfection, the end result is very forgiving. (2 glasses of Chard down? No problem!)
Step 2: Arrange your pictures around the wreath in the way that looks best to you. Your hours of oversized floor puzzles will come in handy here.
Step 3: Glue the pictures down. Hot glue gun worked well for me because its super fast with no dry time. Attach a bow if you like fancy things.
Step 4: Hang!
Step 5: Pat yourself on the back for finding the time to deck the halls with a little hand-crafted goodness and pour yourself another glass. Cheers!
Aside from it being plain easy, I love how versatile this project is and how it allows me to display a number of pictures without putting in the work of framing each one. I could see myself making this a seasonal deal! And is it just me or would this make for a rather adorable (and inexpensive!) gift for the grandparents??
