One of my favorite parts about the end of the year is looking back at all my photos and memories. Plus as you know, Christmas is in my top five of my favorite things about life, so this year, I decided to put the two activities together and make photo ornaments! Here’s how you can whip up a batch to add a personal and colorful touch to your tree in about a half hour:
Time: 30 minutes
Materials: photos, paint, decoupage, paint brush, balsa wood sheet, scissors, ribbon, hot glue gun
You can find the sheet of balsa wood in the wood craft aisle of the craft store. You want it to be 4″ wide and as thin as possible so cuts are easier. Your scissors should be extra sharp or I suggest using a saw.
I had my 4×4 photos printed through Mpix and just love how the colors came out. You can sync up your Instagram/Facebook pages so that selecting photos is super easy!
If you’re in a hurry this year, but still want photo ornaments, you can also make your own online here!
