How to Make Simple and Easy DIY Photo Garland

I’m no Martha Stewart so I need cute holiday homemade ideas that are simple!

What You’ll Need:

You’ll need just 3 items too keep this totally complication free.

  • Ribbon
  • Clothes Pins
  • Favorite Photos


To get a little more fancy and sparkly for the holidays, pick up festive ribbons and decorated clothes pins. You can create a long or short piece of garland and use big or small photos. Whatever suits your fancy.

Photo garland looks cute hanging on a tree, on a mantle,  or hung in a child’s room to make a really fun personalized gift capturing favorite memories.

Simply clip your photos to the ribbon and that’s it! You can adjust and angle to make it look how you like. When clipping on the tree it also works great if you clip your photo, ribbon and clothespin directly onto a string of lights or branch to make it hang pretty.

We made our Photo garland using photos from the kids Swim Season. So cute and it’s full of special memories and moments for all of us celebrating the kids achievements and hard work on swim team last summer.
