iPhone Christmas art

when i first saw this app, i knew immediately i wanted to make my gallery wall more festive with some photos from my iphone. -and yes, i'm completely aware that this space super cluttered, but we had nowhere else to put our stockings!

supplies                                                   time
iphone app                                              15-20 minutes depending on how many you make
printer cardstock
black picture frames, $1 each
command strips. $4 for 4 sets

step 1: download the app.
open up the app store and search "photo combine xmas". install that puppy on yo phone!

step 2: make the art.
insert your favorite holiday/instagram photos and choose which color background you want (i'd go with red or white for the holiday look).

step 3: email + print.
email the photo to yourself. print it whatever size you like. i printed mine at 8 x 10, 5 x 7, and 4 x 6 sizes.

step 4: frame.
if you already have a gallery wall you could pop these pictures in your existing frames for the holiday season to make it super easy. if not, pick up a couple of inexpensive black frames. i got mine at the dollar store.

step 5: hang.
command strips are required at my apartment, but they are also a really great option for holiday decor because they don't damage the walls (if used properly!).

super easy. super cute. super festive.
