DIY: Photo Garland

This Thanksgiving was an extra-special one, simply because everyone was home!  As we get older, it is becoming harder and harder to get everyone in the same place for the holidays, but this year, all three sisters made it home… with our respective significant others… making for a full house!  This Christmas, I am the only one of my sisters going home… so I thought it would be fun to document the time we had together with my new instant camera and make a little photo garland that we can hang up through Christmas… documenting the memories from this year’s special Thanksgiving.

To do this, all you need is an instant camera (love my Fuji Instax) some red satin ribbon, and clothespins!

  3. This is one of my favorite things to do at a wedding! I work with a wedding photographer and we go around the reception taking photos that we hang on a garland – people always love it {and it’s a blast too!}

  7. Actually, who needs an expensive, high tech digital camera? An insta–camera, even a disposable one, is more than a perfect device to capture the best moments of any occasion such as Thanksgiving or Christmas.

  8. Ah I just did something exactly like this in my office at work! Though my Instagram print-outs are nowhere near as fun as your real instant camera 🙂 Love!

  9. My daughters drape these in their bedrooms all the time. Sometimes with song lyrics on index cards. Sometimes with photos. Sometimes hairstyle ideas from magazines…
