This is a shining example of an centrepiece for an anniversary. These photo frame lanterns consist of three hinged photo frames set around votive candles. The black-and-white photos are printed onto ecru-coloured vellum paper, which is translucent enough for the images to be visible by candlelight.
Choose photos that celebrate the couple and their marriage. Simple inspirations include the engagement, wedding day, children and holidays.

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.
Using cloth tape, hinge frames together to form a triangle. Stand frames around a candle in a protective glass holder.
