We all know that part of the styling for a vintage wedding includes special do-it-yourself charm. So today we are so excited to be featuring a DIY from Viva L’Event! When we first began planning our vintage style month, Viva L’Event was one of the first we thought of to help us out. We asked if they would be interested in creating a special vintage DIY for us and they said yes! Let’s see what they’ve got for us …
- Three same size frames of color preference
- Vellum Paper (sold at Office Max)
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Glass Votive
Step 1: Edit pictures to black and white on computer. Print onto vellum paper by changing paper type to “transparency” and quality to “normal”.
Step 2: Cut pictures to size of frame (4×6)
Step 3: Put pictures in place and secure by gluing all four corners to the frame with hot glue.
Step 4: Take two of the three frames and set one flat and the other resting on the side to form a “V” shape.
Step 5: Take the glue gun and glue the two frames together along all or part of where they meet. Hold until dry.
Step 6: Take the third frame and connect both sides to the other two frames. Tightly wrap tape around the unsecured sides.
Step 7: Take the glue gun and glue the remaining sides. There may only be room to partially secure along each crease. Hold until dry.
Step 8: Place the picture frame around a votive and you are finished!
Frames can be altered to match decor by changing colors and adding small charms, flowers or shells. Photos can be changed to initials, song lyrics, vintage wedding photos of other family members or anything imaginable!
How super easy and cute is this DIY? I am so inspired and can’t wait to try this one on my own! And the best part – you can always use these again and even give as gifts to special family members after the wedding. Don’t you just love it?
