2 DIY Ways to Turn Your Wedding Photos Into Decor
By Anjelika Temple for Brit + Co.
You've got your photo book on the coffee table, you've finally put all your fave picks up on Facebook and now, well, now what? What's a newlywed to do with all those wedding photos? You want to display them in your home but don't exactly want to wallpaper every room with scenes from your wedding. Here are two ideas you'll love seeing around the house:
#1: Adorn a Wooden Vase
This unconventional project turns your photo into a piece of decor you can change up weekly with a new batch of flowers. You could even display a dried bouquet from your wedding to really take things to the next level.
What You'll Need:
Size your photos based on the dimensions of your vase, and print on regular printer paper. Cut them out and determine where your photo will fit on your vase. Add Mod Podge to the back of your photo and press onto your vase. Cover the photo with Mod Podge. Make sure to get the corners, as that's where photos tend to curl.
Paint the entirety of your vase so that the texture is the same as where the photo has been attached. Let dry.
Add a little personalization to your fridge or magnetic bulletin board with these sweet little magnets.
What You'll Need:
- White Round Magnets
- Mod Podge Gloss Glue
- Plaid Foam Brush Set
Again, you'll start by opening your photos up on your computer and resizing. This time, resize and crop to 1 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches. Print out your photo and cut it. Place a magnet on top and trace, then cut out the circle. Cut a small snip on each side of your circle — this will allow your photo to wrap around the edges of the magnet.
Paint the back of your photo print with Mod Podge, then place on top of the magnet and overlap the cut pieces. Brush Mod Podge over the entire magnet and let dry. Done and done!
