Hello fellow holiday makers! Today I wanted to share a great holiday decor idea with you all! This is a fantastic way to show off some of your latest Santa pictures or holiday cards along with old childhood photos. I also use it to remember family who’s no longer with us. My husband’s father passed away a few years ago so the holidays can be a bit sad without him. I wanted to find a way to honor his memory without overshadowing the Christmas experience for the kids.
This is what I have come up with. It is an 11X14 inch reminder of his wonderful smile and the life in which he was proud to have lived. I hope that it makes him happy to know that he is remember in our hearts always, not just on Christmas even though he does have a special place on the wall during the holidays. Good luck with your holiday projects! Enjoy!
Step 1: Find your frame to fame!
Here's what you will need:
- Old thrift store picture frame without the glass
- Ribbon (2 different colors)
- Krylon Spray Paint (I've added a link to the one I used)
- Hot Glue Gun (or tacks, glue, velcro, other form of stickyness)
Take your thrift store or unused frame from the closet or parts unknown and bring it into the light! Make sure that it is clean and free from debris. I used a wonderful Krylon Paint that does not require any sanding or priming of the painting surface so most of the hard work is out of the way! One of the many perks of Krylon I suppose!
