Lush greens and prickly pinecones aren’t mandatory for a festive look. A collection of family photos, this photo, also makes a memorable display—one that can adorn the walls long after the holidays. Disassemble and spraypaint six frames gold for the base of this “wreath.” Arrange them in a circle and hot-glue the sides together. Spray-paint six top-loading photo mats silver. When dry, add your photos. Arrange the mats on top of the frames and hot-glue them in place. Add a ribbon to the top. Hang using the hanger on the back of the center top frame.
A SLIP-IN PHOTO MAT IS A LIGHTWEIGHT ALTERNATIVE TO ABULKY FRAME.
