Yesterday I shared photos from our big Halloween party. Today I wanted to show you how to make this easy photo garland.
I thought it would be fun to create a garland using photos from our previous Halloween parties, but you could easily do this for any holiday or special occasion. (Or you could even do it for a random Tuesday, it’s that easy.)
I turned all of mine into black & white photos and printed them at a 4 x 6 size. I got some black card-stock and cut it to 5 x 7 pieces. I simply adhered the photos using double-sided tape. I totally eyeballed the placement (you know that’s may favorite unit of measurement) then I punched a hole in the top and looped a ribbon through it.
A great source for photos and photo inspiration is Shutterfly.com. You can order prints, photo books and all sorts of personalized photo products through their site. We often have so many digital images stockpiled that we forget how wonderful it is to have the physical photos to share.
One of the fun things that Shutterfly is doing is a Howl-O-Ween Photo Contest that will be running through November 7.
If you go to Shutterfly’s Facebook Page and become a fan, you can enter their Howl-O-Ween Photo Contest. Share your best images and fondest moments and you can win some pretty nice prizes…
