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.

Chic-as-hell vintage lamps as centerpiece decor as seen on @offbeatbride

Chic-as-hell vintage lamps as centerpiece decor

Vanessa and Octavia had their industrial garden party wedding at the super industrial-chic venue, Tap Architecture in Oklahoma City. Our favorite part was their centerpiece decor that made their already gorgeously rough interior even more vintage-fabulous. The pair re-painted and re-covered all the lamps and lampshades used as centerpieces, cut custom fabric as table runners, and collected old books as decor. It was a labor of love that made us swoon for the homey vibe.
