How To Make Christmas Photo Ornaments
Supplies needed for your Christmas Photo Ornaments
- plastic ornaments
- ornament fillers (pom pom balls, tinsel, photos, stickers etc)
- scissors (for cutting out pictures)
Instructions on how to make Christmas photo ornaments:
Grab your supplies and head to the table. Spread out the ornament fillers and give each child their own plastic ornament. Pop the top off and let the kids start filling their ornament with whatever they would like! We had some extra photos printed so we grabbed those. My kids loved stuffing in the sparkly pom pom balls and some tinsel that we had. They also each made an ornament with their photo inside and hung it on their trees!
Here’s how we got the photo in the ornament:
Grab a picture out cut a circle out around your child’s face. I just eyed the size but you could definitely trace the ornament size around your picture if you need to. Next, gently roll your picture up so it will fit through the top of your ornament. Slide it through and it will open up when it’s inside your ornament! If you need to move it around, grab tweezers and position the picture how you would like it.
You could even help your child make an ornament with their picture inside for relatives…grandparents would LOVE these! Tie a bow on top of the ornament for an extra special touch if you choose to make it a gift.
Have you ever made Christmas photo ornaments with these plastic ornaments before? There are all different sizes and shapes which is fun and you can find these at any craft store. It’s great that these are plastic too! If they fall out of your child’s hand, no big deal.
If your child makes some of these homemade ornaments, feel free share a picture of his or her finished ornament and tag @familyfocusblog so we can see it!
