Simple Cork Photo Wreath
September 4, 2011
Happy Labor Day Weekend all! We’re spending it with my folks hanging out by their swimming pool, doing a lot of relaxing in the sun. BOTB will return next weekend, meanwhile I’m popping in to say hello and link up with Nester’s wreath party tonight.
Like all grandmoms, my mom loves pics of her grandkids, so I crafted a simple photo wreath with a cork base for her to to hang above her desk.
I saw a photo wreath online somewhere many months ago and absolutely loved the idea. This version has a cork back to make it easy for Mom to change out the images as the grandkids grow and change. This is crazy easy to make, here are the simple steps:
Layer the cardboard circle over the cork layer and cut out your cork with a sharp blade on a cutting board. Carefully peel back the cork you won’t use. Repeat and cut a second layer. .
Use an adhesive that works for porous surfaces, and apply two layers of cork to the cardboard circle.
Attach a ribbon and secure your pictures with push pins.
Couldn’t be easier.
Great for Christmas cards, party invitations, photos, whatever!
I’m headed back to the pool, hope you all are enjoying your weekend too, and if you’ve made a wreath and written about it, be sure to link up to Nester’s party. Over and out.
