Instructions to Make Your DIY Souvenir Photo Garland

1. Get out your supplies: vacation photos, circular punch (I used a 2″ circle size), decorative string and glue stick.

2. Cut circles out of photos using hole punch. Pick interesting areas of photo to highlight.

3. Layout cut circles with in order of how you want to string it, one circle for front and one for back.

4-5. Put glue on the back of one of the circles. Place string on top of glued circle, then afix top circle. (String will be sandwiched between top and bottom circle.)

6. Continue to glue all circles to string until garland is complete.

Once your garland is complete, string it up in your office at work, or at home in a window or from a shelf to add some fun color to your space and remind you of your wonderful adventure.
