Make these colorful Instagram ornaments for your tree in less than one hour!Coat your frames with sealer and let dry. Tape off at an angle and paint. Peel the tape and let dry again.  On the back, apply a thin layer of tacky glue all the way around the frame and place on your photo. Let glue dry overnight.

With an X-Acto knife, trim the excess photo. To attach a hook, cut about 5 inches of cord, loop, and then secure with a dap of hot glue. Once completely dry, your ornaments are ready to hang!
