Sweet Family Photo Ornament



Vintage family photos make wonderful keepsake ornaments! 

For this one Dot Alcorn started with a round chipboard base.  The photo was then layered on and the mixture of black, white and silver micro beads were added to the edges with O'So Sticky Tape.

My friend Kathi Hall told me about another fun ornament base – canning lids!  They have darling red and white checked ones available that make wonderful Christmas ornament bases.  red-gingham-jam-jar-lid-63mm

Place a family photo on the plain side and make a “To” and “From” signature on the gingham side with a Sharpie marker.

A Crop-A-Dile tool easily punches holes through the lid for the ribbon to thread through.


Oh! These ornaments could also be used as the gift tag on a present!

So many ideas, so little time!


Hugs, Suzanne
