If you are going to the trouble to take a gazillion pictures it seems silly to let them all linger on your phone, in a box or collecting dust in an album. Try some fun ideas for using your photographs from the holidays, like Halloween in new fun ways. How’s about printing them on fabric and embroidering them!
Small Embroidery Hoop
This year for Halloween Chris and Tallulah had a group costume. Chris was Gallagher, complete with Sledge-o-Matic and Tallulah was a squashed watermelon. I printed a picture of them up on fabric that goes through your printer. I wrote 2010 in pen on the fabric so I could embroider the year.
Using the wee-est of all wee embroidery hoops I could find I stretched my fabric and embroidered my 2010 using a simple back stitch.
After I was done embroidering I removed my photograph and set it to the side. Using paint in black I painted my wooden embroidery hoop. After the paint dried I trimmed the edge of the hoop with decorative ribbon using glue.
I made a back for my ornament using decorative paper and black craft felt. I attached a loop of ribbon so that I could hang my ornament from the tree.
Now all I need to do is make an ornament with a picture from Halloween 2009 and the tradition has begun!
