Photo Booth Art

How was your weekend? I'm starting to taper for the Chicago marathon, so I had a little extra time on my hands. As in I only had to run 12 miles instead of 20 on Sunday. To keep myself from going crazy, I baked an apple pie. If you ask really nicely maybe I'll give you the recipe :)

And I worked on decorating the apartment. Even though we've been in our place for almost a year, there are still things that need to be finished. Like our gallery wall. And organizing the office/spare room. But that one's a different story for a different time. It's nowhere near ready for its close-up yet. Instead, I'll share with you an easy art project that's hanging on the in-process gallery wall.

Step 1: Get an invitation to a wedding where there will be a photo booth.
Alternate Step 1: Find a photo booth in your area.

Step 2: Hop in and take shots with friends and family. (The photographic kind!) If you use an 8X10 frame, you'll need 5 photo strips.

Step 3: Pick up a picture frame from Ikea, Target, or your home store of choice. I used a black 8X10 Ribba frame from Ikea. It was only $5!

Step 4: Use photo splits or tape to stick the strips to the mat.

Step 5: Put your pictures in the frame.

Step 6: Find a spot on the wall and hang your pretty artwork.

Step 7: Sit back and enjoy!

Did you bake anything this weekend? Or maybe finish a project around the house?
