Whether gift or decor, these DIY embroidered vintage photos are AWESOME

I once found an old photo album at a thrift store and I remember feeling captivated looking through the photos of those strangers' lives. The last photo I saw was a wedding photo. Since then I've had a fascination with vintage photos as well as incorporating something of myself creatively, like weaving myself into the scene in a way. So I tried embroidering right onto a copy of the photo!

I could see these DIY embroidered vintage photos as a beautiful gift for an engaged couple, a creative way to display your own family wedding photos, or as lovely wedding decor and centerpieces.

A fandom welcome sign that steals our geeky hearts

One element that managed to combine all of these fandoms and movies into one was their ceremony welcome sign.
