DIY Monday-Vellum Photo Frames
I once attended a baby shower with tables decorated with an assortment of adorable photos of the little girl printed on vellum with a candle illuminating from behind. This is a great way to add photos of you and your groom in something more romantic than a regular frame?
Here’s the gist: They consist of three hinged photo frames set around votive candles. The black-and-white photos are printed onto vellum paper (you can buy at Joanns), which is translucent enough for the images to be visible by candlelight.
What you need:
Paint or wood stain (if desired)
Votive Candle (electric works too)
Follow these easy 5 steps:
1.Disassemble three like-sized frames, setting aside their fronts and discarding their backings.
2. Paint or stain wooden frames desired color; let dry.
3. Upload or scan photographs into a computer. With editing software, make the images black and white, and resize them to fit your frames. Print them onto vellum paper with an ink-jet printer.
4. Slip the images into the frames.
5.Using cloth tape, hinge frames together to form a triangle. Stand frames around a candle in a protective glass holder.
