Fun way to display photos!
This frame adds a personal touch to the Christmas tree, but can be used as a simple hanging frame throughout the year! Such a fun way to display memorable photos in your home!

  • Step 1

    - Create a circular "frame": I traced a circle on a piece of cardstock and added a 1/2 in border. When cut out it should look like a ring. (My ring ended up being about 4 in. in diameter, but use whatever size works well with your photo.)
    - Cut photo into a circle to fit inside the frame

  • Step 2

    - Round One: Sc around the circular frame. It doesn't matter how many sc, it just needs to be a number divisible by six. Make sure you squeeze the stitches in tightly so that the cardstock underneath doesn't show.
    - Round Two: *Skip 2 sc, work (2 dc, ch 3, sl in third chain from hook, 2 dc in original sc) in next stitch, skip 2 st, sl in next stitch*, repeat from * to * around.
    - Ch 20, slip into top of frame. Bind off and weave in ends.

  • Step 3

    - Position the photo inside the frame. Using needle and embroidery floss similar to color of yarn, attach the photo to the back of the frame. I just used a running stitch around the edge of the circle.
    - Write year in a blank area of the picture. Use back stitch to embroider the numbers. Be careful not to make the stitches too small, because the photo paper is easy to rip.

Oh, I also thought I'd mention, I found that it was pretty easy to add a backing by crocheting a plain old circle using the magic ring method and sewing it on (incase anyone is interested)
