Sunday Night Supper Series…
Last week we celebrated my nephew Vinnie turning 3-years old! He loves photos of himself, so I decided to put together a quick and easy photo board to showcase some of his cutest moments!
It’s super easy- and you can do it to dress up any occasion! All you need are a few basics:
Black Foam Board
Ribbon, rick-rack or even a heavy twine.
I have a ton of different ribbons from a box Nick’s grandmother gave me once. In true hoarder style (and my love of ribbon) I could not part with the box and therefore always look for ways to use this ribbon all the time!
You will also need clothespins and a couple small stick pins.
I dressed my clothespins up with some washi tape from the craft store.
You can also grab a scissors because your first step is to make a cut in the corner of the black foam board, one on each side. They don’t need to be directly across from each other. The more uneven the better the diagonal pattern.
Wedge your ribbon into the slit and pull it across the front and back.
Repeat with different colors!
Use the small stick pins to hold the ribbon in place as you pull it tight and tie it on the backside.
You want enough slack on the front to get the clothespin behind the ribbon but not too much that the photos sag.
After you get the ribbon situated you can clip on all the photos.
I let Clair and Vinnie help me!
So many awesome shots of this guy!
Another quick tip I have for you when decorating for a party like this is to enlarge a favorite photo and order it mounted on poster board.
I did mine through the Walgreens one-hour photo department. I used a coupon and got this look-for only $12!
I also have to share the fun that went into this angel food birthday cake with the three wind up dinosaurs on it- my mom’s creation of course!
It turned this birthday boy blues from this-
Of course the real delight came from opening presents!
So many good shots for NEXT year’s photo board!
Happy Birthday Vincent!
