Holiday Instax Wreath

Instax Love
I brought my Instax Wide with me on our road trip to OKC and Dallas to see the entire side of my family. I'm hoping to be able to take a photo of each of them (as well as Brett's side) and then make a flip book for Ruby and Sebastian since they don't see everyone as often as any of us would like. Expect a little DIY in the future!

Instax Love
These are mostly photos I've taken since we've moved into our new home. I wanted a way to document this first Christmas that captured the random memories such as the sick kid dance party we had in our living room the morning before our road trip and the many things Ruby found her way into while we were unpacking. This green wreath was probably made to be a Christmas card holder but I found it at a thrift store and spray painted it green last year and decided to go with photos instead.

Instax Love
I've been keeping it up on the wall (no, we don't have all wood paneling. ha!) but couldn't get a picture without strange reflections on the photos. It's been fun to add a picture every few days and I'll date the backs and maybe start over for the new year. I love my Instax 210 and will never get over the feeling of instant photos in my hand. Thanks, Joe! (If anyone has this on their Christmas list, you're going to love it!)

We are currently enjoying perfect weather in OKC at my parent's house. Brett and Sebastian are outside playing ball and my mom is soaking in some grandbaby time with Ruby! Can I just say...I'm totally enjoying this little break in mama duty. Couldn't have come at a better time! Check back this evening for our Vintage Here, Vintage There post featuring outerwear!

xoxo,
Rachel

I love this idea! I have an instax mini on my wish list. I'm so terrible at actually printing out my photos so I thought that having this would help! I love the display idea and I'm jealous of your find. :)

that is such a cute idea! I love the colour you painted it :) i'm so glad they've come out with a new type of instant film, I missed the polaroids terribly!

Love this, I hope to find a wreath form that will allow me to do this! It'd also look great as a way to display Christmas cards! Happy Holidays!

Cute display! I got an Instax 25 for Christmas (yes early!) and we've been having fun with it. I'm using it to do my "Journal your Christmas mini" and can't wait to use it on our cross-country roadtrip on our move to California in Feb.!

Been eyeing the Instax or the new Polaroid. I love the new size--makes me want to instantly scrapbook. Not sure if I like pics with the white borders or without that make the pics look like fancy business cards.
Glad to hear your review on the Instax:)
