To make this Christmas Memory Photo Wreath, you will need…
- Straw wreath form
- 6-inch wide denim ribbon
- Wood frame cutouts
- Wood snowflake cutouts
- FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint in Vintage White
- FolkArt Metallic Paint in Sahara Gold and Taupe
- Plaid paintbrushes
- Favorite holiday photos
- White glue
- Hot glue
- Decorative ribbon
Wrap the wreath form with the denim ribbon, securing with hot glue, until the entire surface of the form is covered. Set the wreath aside.
Use the paintbrushes to apply the FolkArt Metallic Paint to the snowflake cutouts. Apply 2-3 coats as needed for even coverage, allowing the paint to dry 15 minutes between coats. Set the snowflake pieces aside to dry completely.
Using a paintbrush, apply the Vintage White FolkArt Multi-Surface paint to each of the wood frames. Applying 2-3 coats for even coverage, allowing the paint to dry 15 minutes between coats. Set the frames aside to dry completely.
Use scissors to trim the photos so they fit into each of the frames. Affix the photos to the back of the frames with the white glue.
Affix the photos and snowflakes around the perimeter of the wreath with hot glue, overlapping the edges of the pieces for a layered effect.
As you affix the frames and snowflakes, leave a portion of the wreath uncovered at the top. Tie a decorative ribbon bow and affix it to this blank space with hot glue.
Your Christmas Memory Photo Wreath is complete!
