if you want to keep the kids occupied these holidays, why not have them hold your Christmas bunting for you!
(a variation on this smaller version i made earlier in the year)
1. take pictures of your kiddos holding an invisible bunting - think about how you want to position your frames and give them spots to look at while taking their picture so that it will look like they are looking at each other once hanging on the wall:
(because they've done it before they understood my instructions. i gave Danny a small piece of paper to hold between his fingers though)
2. select the best photos. fiddle with the images until satisfied.
3. choose your frames and remove the glass.
4. print your images to fit the frames you have selected and prepare your bunting (i soaked mine with a tea bag to give it a more aged look)
5. for support, place some tape on the back of the image where the kids fingers are then poke a hole where you want to thread the bunting. thread a small piece of bunting through this hole and tape again to hold in place.
position and hang!
now i know it does look kinda awesome to have a fistful of kiddos to hold your bunting for you this Christmas, but if you only have 1, or even none you can still swing a bunting (or Christmas greeting - i'd love to do this one) between two photos...even if it's just of you and your pug :)
will you make one?
show me if you do, i'd love to see!
