This time of year is generally filled with fun family memories, so I thought it would be fun to create a winter wreath filled with some of those memories.

Family Memories Winter Wreath

I started by using my photo editing software to resize lots and lots of family pics. I made each of them 2.5 inches square and printed them out on cardstock paper.

And then I cut them all out with scissors. No need for perfection.

I found that it was much easier to attach the photos to the wreath form by cutting the bottom of each photo into a point.

And then I attached them to the wreath form using straight pins. (I didn’t use glue so that I could easily re-use the wreath form again.)

And when the whole thing was covered, it looked like this…

And finally, I added a big green bow, and sprayed everything with spray glitter. (Because what’s spray a winter wreath without glitter and sparkle!?)

And that’s it! It’s one of the easiest wreaths I’ve ever made, and I love seeing all of those smiling faces of loved ones when I look at it.

    Love it. I want to do this and hang it year round! You are SO TALENTED! I don’t mind having no imagination as long as I can copy yours! LOL. I will give you credit and send all of the admirers to your blog!

    This is a wonderful idea and could be used for more than one family occasion – family reunions, Easter etc. – just change out your bow.

    I have very little wall space for all the family photos…so I think I will incorporate this and make an all year round wreath that I can leave up for a while. I am getting on in years and love to have pictures of family around me when alone in my bedroom….so a “my bedroom” motif I think….thanks Kristi….once again a novel idea….and yours is beautiful!!!

    Hmmm, I think I’d rather use my family photos to make a dart board! LOLOL Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Nice project. :)

    Thank you so much for posting this. I’m going to make one as a wedding present to a couple who love displaying photo. Once I have the brides colours I’m going to do the ribbon to match.
