Family picture post

Do you remember my love affair with all things black and white with red?  Well here is a family picture post we made for the other grandma and grandpa for Christmas.  I loved it sooo much, I wanted to keep it, but then they would be super sad.

Since I don't have a cool camera yet, only one picture turned out good enough to use so you can't see the thickness of the post.  I am not sure what the measurements were because this was a scrap piece I picked up from a lumbar yard.  I want to say something like 4 or 5 inches wide and 3 thick?  Not a standard one, but it worked out great. 

I painted the post black and mod podged the pictures on.  Once again, I don't have my silhouette yet (I am sure any day they will send me my free one, wink, wink), so I did it the old fashion way by printing off my font of choice and tracing them onto my red card stock.  I cut a piece of red tulle and tied it at the top.  And viola!  A family picture post. I did their initials next to their names, but you could do any fun words down the side or even the family's last name.

I am linking up to any or all of these fabulous linky parties here.


  1. You are so creative! I love this!

  2. I love this, what a super cute way to display photos, and who doesn't love BW photos. Well Done! Jen

  3. Adorable Idea! I hope you'll come link it up at the craft catwalk!

  4. this is really cute! what a creative idea!
    I have SCAL for my Cricut and it lets me use ALL the fonts on my computer with it to cut with the cricut. I also have thousands of free images that I use with SCAL, in fact the only cartridges I own for the Cricut are the ones that came with it lol. SCAL is a really good investment, I hate how expensive the cartridges are for the Cricut but this saves the day!

  5. Taking a scrap piece of wood and mod podging pictures onto it is such a great idea! So clever! Now it makes me want to do this project...

  6. Nice way to have family pictures all in one place. Looks great. Linda


Wait! Don't read and run. I would love to know what you think. Good? Bad? (Okay, maybe not the bad. My ego is fragile still.) It is your comments that keep this little brain buzzing.
