picture ornaments

Today I made a few more picture ornaments for the tree in the upstairs hall. It has pictures of our kids from Christmases past. Today I printed some from last Christmas so I could add our granddaughters to the tree.

To make the ornaments, I print photos using Print Shop.

After trimming the photos, I matted them and added some glitter glue. When I made the first picture ornaments years ago, I tried to make them look like something the kids would have made as a Christmas art project.

To make hangers for the pictures, I used gold cord and strung them with some little gold beads I had. The needle threader helped a lot!

Knotting the gold cord on each side of the beads helps keep them in place.
