EASY Photo Ornaments

Well, I know you remember these from last year...
They're just so simple...and such great gifts...I can't let the season go by without a little recap.


Here's what I did:
Using plain, glass ornaments (or unbreakable...whichever you prefer)...


I simply rolled up my photo and eased it inside.

Now, let me note, you will need to experiment with the size of your photo. I used trial and error- starting large and slowly cutting down to size until it fit the way I wanted. I used a pair of tweezers and a pair of scissors to manuver it around and flatten it out. It took a little practice, so be sure you have extra copies just in case you accidentally tear one while pulling it back out. I found that rolling it back up, then twisting and pulling was the easiest way to get it back out.
Or, if you plan on making a lot of them, try creating a pattern with cardstock first, then cutting your photos the same size.



They've become a bit of a tradition around here...as a way to keep and display each year's Christmas card photo.

  1. This is such a great idea! Where did you buy your glass ornaments? I've looked a lot of different places, but might have to resort to buying online.

    1. I bought these particular ones at a store called "Carolina Pottery." However, if you don't have that store, I have seen them at Hobby Lobby as well...and I bet other craft stores would carry them. Be sure to get the LARGE size! Hope that helps!
