DIY Photo Frame Centerpiece Tutorial

Today is great because 1) I get to do a tutorial for you about how to put together a great (and EASY) centerpiece for weddings, graduations, special birthdays, etc., and 2) because I had the help of my sister and brother-in-law, who are visiting from Nebraska!

We used these centerpieces to go on each side of our main centerpieces, which you can see here.


This is super-simple; all you need are some photo frame mats (3 per centerpiece;), whatever photos you want to use (again, three per centerpiece), a little bit of tape, and (if you want) some LED lights to go inside them (one for each centerpiece)! Also, if you want to get even fancier, you can of course use any kind of frame you want–but using just the mats is so much less expensive. 🙂


Secure each photo to a frame.

You can use landscape (horizontal) and portrait (vertical) aligned photos but you’ll just need to make sure you have three of the same style for each centerpiece.

Once you have photos secured to three mats/frames, tape them all together and stand upright!

When we used these for our wedding, we included 1) a photo of my husband as a child, 2) a photo of me as a child, and 3) a photo of us as a couple in each centerpiece.

We placed these on each side of our floral/water centerpieces (if you haven’t seen that post, see the centerpieces here). We didn’t put any lights in them because we used colored LEDs in our other centerpieces, but you definitely could stick an LED in the center of the photo frames for a bit more light!

Hope you get a chance to try it at your next event!

Love, Hope, & Prayers,

  1. wow!! What a great idea, I think it’s awesome. Thanks for the tips I hope to be able to use them soon for my daughters graduation :0)

  2. I made a photo frame centerpiece for my wedding in August, but it didn’t look quite right. And these look beautiful! I think I’ll try these, where did you get the photo mat things from?

    • Glad you like them! I actually got them from an art supply store–they actually were pretty reasonably priced since I bought them in bulk!
