DIY Picture Christmas Ornaments

 I realize that Christmas is over and many if not most of you have your Christmas trees and decor packed up and back in storage by now. However, while you are still somewhat in thinking about Christmas, or possibly getting Christmas pictures printed keep these in mind. These are simple Christmas ornaments you can make for your tree or as a gift. 

Simply purchase wood tags at your local craft store or online.. print your favorite pictures of children or memories from the year, trace the shape of your tag on the picture, cut out, and use modge podge to adhere the picture to the wood. (Modge Podge is a glue that dries clear. You simple brush some on the surface of the tag. Place your picture where you would like it. Let dry. Add a layer of glue to the top of your picture to seal it down. Let it dry.) Add ribbon to the top of your wood tag to hang. Done and Done. You can also buy special shaped wood tags in the shapes of trees, gingerbread men, stars, etc. 

I intend to take a Christmas picture of my kids every year and turn it into an ornament so that as they grow up I'll have a picture ornament of them each year. Just a thought! So while you are still printing holiday pictures you may make a few or keep this in mind for next year. Either way. I've yet to make mine but hopefully this week.
