Christmas Ornament Craft

I’ll admit right now, I am not a great crafter. But when I joined Traci’s team a few years ago, I promised myself that I would try to go outside the box and work out of my digital scrapbooking comfort zone. It’s a bit scary and most of my crafts are pretty basic, but I think I’m achieving that goal.

For my craft project this month, we are creating Photo Christmas ornaments. Feel free to modify your craft the way you want, this is just a guideline for what I did.

You will need: (some items are optional)

  • Mod Podge
  • Glitter
  • Wooden Piece or whatever you think will work for you (for ornament)
  • Printed Scrapbook paper
  • Printed photos
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon

This is what my stash looked like:

  1. Print out your photos and scrapbook paper on your home printer. For this project I used Traci’s Pocket Life December 2015.
  2. Trace circles using the wooden piece as a guide onto the paper to get the correct size and cut them.
  3. Glue your paper circles onto your wooden ornament. I used Mod Podge. This is a multi step process since I waited for the Mod Podge to dry in between layering my papers.
  4. Once the papers and photos are dry, you can decorate your ornament.
  5. For my ornament, I had an edge showing so I painted glitter mod podge and layered white glitter on the edges.
  6. Glue a piece of ribbon, twine or even felt to the back of your ornament to hang in your tree.

Here’s my finished project:
