Last year when I was out with my family, Evelyn spotted Santa in a store across the street from where we were walking. She wanted to go over and check things out. As we walked over, Santa saw us coming and came to the window. He knelt down to say “hi” to Evelyn. I was able to quickly grab my photo and capture a magical picture of the two of them.
This picture has been on my phone for awhile now. I knew I wanted to find a way to incorporate it into my holiday decor. I decided to keep it simple and create this DIY “Believe” framed Christmas photo. If you don’t have an un-staged photo of your child with Santa (like me), you could also use a traditional photo with Santa. All you need to do is print the photo in black and white. I love the black and white look with the pop of red from the words!
- Black and White Photo
- Red Adhesive Vinyl
- Cricut Machine
- Transfer Tape
To make your own DIY “Believe” framed Christmas photo, place your vinyl (I got mine from Walmart) on a cutting mat with the liner facing down and cut out the word “Believe” from a Cricut Machine. Then, weed the negative vinyl and place a piece of transfer tape on top of the word and burnish. Slowly peel back the tape and your word will be attached. Finally, place the word on the outside of the frame glass, burnish, and slowing peel back the transfer tape.
Place your photo of your child with Santa inside of your frame. This DIY “Believe” framed Christmas photo will be something you bring out year-after-year to celebrate the season.
