I decorated the family photo hang tags with a, vintage, winter feel but, think beyond that when decorating your genealogy ornaments. I can see these be used at any family gathering, reunions, older generation birthdays and anniversaries. I think they also would look wonderful hanging stair rails, on garlands or even as bunting.
There are more tags to be made but I think its looking quite pretty. Very few of the Christmas decorations I already have that match the antique whites, gold, and sliver theme of the tree. I thought I would leave those off so you can see what it could look like for a different family gathering.
I batted around whether or not to use the vintage taffeta seam binding as hangers or the original strings. I was worried it would look to busy. But the taffeta slipped over the branches more easily than the strings. I recommend gluing your hanger to the back because the tag holes tend to weaken over time. These are meant to be turned around to read the hand written information on the back about the relative in the photo.
I decorated and added some of the family's old baby spoons to the tree. I have a few pairs of baby shoes I am thinking of adding as well. A tree topper is in the planning stages. I will say it will most likely involve old book pages or sheet music. Also a We Are Family garland.
PS. Sorry for the fuzzy photos. I just didnt want to postpone this post anymore. I spent all week taking pics in different light and different times of the day. I just couldn't seem to get one snapped right.
