Make a Picture Frame Memory Wreath

There are nearly endless creative possibilities for making wreaths and for displaying family photos.  But how about doing both at once?  KariAnne from Thistlewood Farm shared this project at Infarrantly Creative, and we love it!  Not only is it a clever idea, it is also very versatile in that simply changing the photos gives the wreath and entirely different look.  Fill it with old family photos for a "family tree" wreath, dig out old holiday pictures to turn it into a Christmas wreath, use photos of one person over the years to make a decoration for a birthday or graduation party...  There are so many things you can do with this wreath!  It takes a lot of little frames but sometimes if you get lucky you can even find two-packs of small frames at the dollar store, which makes this project all the more economical!  [how to make a picture frame memory wreath]

    Where can you find so many 2 by 3 picture frames at? I’ve looked everywhere.

    @k.brewer sometimes they come in packs of 2 or 3 at the dollar store. You could also make your own frames from cardstock.

    Love this idea, esp as a decoration for a birthday or anniversary party. Afterwards, the guest of honor could take it home as a memento of the special occasion.
