DIY Valentine's Instagram Photo Wreath



Hello, friends! Love is in the air here at our house, and today I'm sharing with you a super-simple project for Valentine's Day to celebrate you and your sweetie!


Valentine's Instagram Photo Wreath

What you'll need:

-20 pictures of you and your honey from Instagram via the app Postal Pix (Such a cool little site that will print your favorite instagrams and deliver them to your door. I chose ones of me and my husband, but it could be made for any of your loved ones. OR you can use 4x4 prints.)
-Heart-shaped wire wreath
-Tape
-Ribbon
-Scissors


First, tie your ribbon in a loop with about 6 inches on each side and tie a knot. Position the wreath with the middle wire face down. 


 Position your pictures in a heart shape. Overlap when needed to fill the space. Just make sure the pictures at the top middle and bottom middle come to a point.


When you're happy with the look, lift the wreath and tape photos in place.


 When all photos are secure, turn over and add more tape to the wreath and to each other to secure. Hot glue a bow to the top of the ribbon, and hang on a door or wall.


And there you have it! Told you it was easy! Now you can be reminded of your love all month long.

Here is another round version I recently made for a sweet sixteen party:


So cute, simple and special! I'm in love.

Hope your week is full of love and laughter.

XOXO, Kayli
