One last baby shower decoration to post! Originally, I had planned to use jute twine and covered clothespins to string baby pictures along a wall, but after making my bunting, decided I didn’t want jute twine strung everywhere. Instead, I went back to my square motif and cut cardstock into 4×4 squares, affixed color-copied baby pictures of the parents to be, and used twine to hang them from a beautifully natural fallen tree branch. The parents-to-be had a gorgeous hammered copper vessel at home that served as the perfect display piece. So easy to do, and so inexpensive!
Here’s what you need:
- a branchy branch (please use only ones that have fallen, do not pluck one from a living tree!)
- colored cardstock
- ruler and scissors
- color-copied pictures
- glue stick
- jute twine
- hole punch
Here’s what you do:
- Cut cardstock into 4 x 4 squares, using a ruler and scissors or your Fiskars paper trimmer.
- Crop pictures to fit cardstock and affix with glue or mounting squares.
- On backside, glue kraft paper tracings (optional, please see A Fine Liner for the how-to).
- Use hole punch at top of square.
- Use jute twine to loop through hole, creating a hanger.
- Artfully arrange your pictures on the branches.
Here’s the final product on display at the baby shower!
