DIY Photo Centerpiece!

Hello to all of you Crafters!!
If you happen to follow me on Instagram (and if you don't, I'd love to be for you to check out my page) you may have seen my most recent themed party: Airline Pilot Retirement Party!!
My dad is retiring after flying planes for 40+ years! He was a LT Colonel in the Air Force before flying commercial planes for NWA/Delta! My mom and I planned a retirement party for him, complete with flight attendants, an official Delta beverage cart, and lots of DIYs!! Read on for my DIY Photo Centerpiece and click HERE for more party details!!

  • Glass Vase  - I found this vase at the dollar store
  • Wooden Dowels - Purchased from Michaels
  • Photos - I copied photos into Microsoft Word and sized them into approx. 2-4" shapes
  • White Mints
  • Scissors
  • Double Sided Tape

Step One: Insert photos into a Microsoft Word document. Change the shape of the photos by clicking on the photo and the arrow under format - picture styles. Once you have the shape you like, right click on photo to show the format picture option. Crop the shape to 2" to 4" and add a 20 point solid black line.

Step Two: Print off two copies of each photo on white card stock. Cut out each picture and make piles of the matching photos.

Step Three: Turn one of the photos over with a wooden dowel and tape to the paper. Add a few strips of double stick tape onto the back and adhere the matching photo.

Step Four: (Optional) Since this project was for a retirement party, I typed little summaries about what the photos meant. My dad started flying in the Air Force so I wrote a little about his time in the military. For the travel photos, I wrote a bit about my dad's favorite trips! I added these into frames that I put onto the tables next to the vases!

Scatter some mints around the base of the vase and you've got a personalized centerpiece for the party!!

I hope you enjoyed this project!

XOXO, Karly
