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
- Wooden Piece or whatever you think will work for you (for ornament)
- Printed Scrapbook paper
- Printed photos
- Glue Gun
This is what my stash looked like:
- Print out your photos and scrapbook paper on your home printer. For this project I used Traci’s Pocket Life December 2015.
- Trace circles using the wooden piece as a guide onto the paper to get the correct size and cut them.
- 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.
- Once the papers and photos are dry, you can decorate your ornament.
- For my ornament, I had an edge showing so I painted glitter mod podge and layered white glitter on the edges.
- 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:
I hope that I have inspired you to create your own photo ornaments!
