If you're throwing a party for someone's anniversary or birthday, the guest of honor will shine with a set of photo frame lanterns. They consist of three hinged photo frames set around votive candles. The black-and-white photos are printed onto ecru-colored vellum paper, which is translucent enough for the images to be visible by candlelight.
Here's the Photo Centerpiece "How-To":
-Disassemble three like-sized frames, setting aside their fronts and discarding their backings.
-Paint or stain wooden frames desired color; let dry.
-Upload or scan photographs into a computer.
-With editing software, make the images black and white and resize them to fit your frames.
-Print them onto vellum paper with an ink-jet printer.
-Slip the images into the frames.
-Using cloth tape, hinge frames together to form a triangle.
-Stand frames around a candle in a protective glass holder.
Pretty neat, huh?
