Photo Centerpieces

I found the idea for these centerpieces on Martha Stewart's website. I am pleasantly surprise with how they turned out. myMr and I will not be using them for centerpieces, but we will be using them to adorn the bar since we will not be serving alcohol at the wedding. Check it out!

*Disclaimer: My printer was running out of ink so some of the pictures printed really light. *

I purchased these frames at Michael's for $1.00 a piece.

Then, I printed out pictures on vellum. Yes, that's right, vellum.

Then, after placing the pictures in their designated frames, I attached them in the shape of a triangle (you can do a square if you choose to use 4 pictures). I placed a battery operated "candle" inside of the triangle, and voila!

To be perfectly honest, I haven't attached the frames yet. Martha Stewart suggests using a certain kind of tape, but I am going to be a handy woman and make a trip to Home Depot to purchase hinges for the frames. :) The pictures shown above are from FSIL's wedding. I will be giving her this frame for her birthday. :)

What do you all think? Will you be incorporating pictures of you and your SO on your wedding day?

Take care until next time,

How do you attach the pictures to the frame since you're not using the backing?
