Behind the Scenes of my Indoor Christmas Minis

Updated: Jan 1


Hey hey hey! How's everyone doing? Seriously though, how're you doing? Staying sane after all your seasonal festivities?

I just wanted to share with you a little before, during, & after of these minis. First, I ordered my (giant) 72 inch wreath & all the decorating supplies. ex: glue sticks, pine branches, holly, felt, faux spray snow, boxes, burlap, command hooks, & some candy canes. Later, I realized the wreath was SO darn big, I purchased another smaller one to ensure the proper proportions for the babies or small toddlers. So I ended up with both a 72" & a 42" wreath.


I started with the headband; hot glueing two long pine branch pieces together, adding felt on the inside to make it soft & wearable. I slowly hot glued all the pieces onto the wreaths, as well as the burlap to the boxes. I then added those cute little pine pieces to the boxes & headband to match the wreaths perfectly. After all the hot glue had dried, I finished by spraying on the faux snow to all the props.


Here's a few Iphone photos of the props as the faux snow was drying:




A few days later, I held a couple modeled shoots & released the official advertisement photo:
