These memory photo ornaments from wood slices are a wonderful way to personalize your holiday! Give them as gifts to grandparents or family. Make one for each new baby. Fill your tree with photos through the years! No matter how you use them, they will be another way to make your holiday memorable. P.S. Small ones also make great magnets!
- Wood discs about 1/2″ thick cut from tree branch. (approx 3 to 4″ in diameter) The cheapest way is of course to grab a branch and slice it up with a saw. If you don’t have that option you can buy the slices at any craft store or on Amazon. Just make sure to get the size you need. The smaller sizes allow you to use 4″x6″ photos.
- Mod Podge
- String for hanging
- Cord trim
- Extras. Ribbon, bells, artificial foliage etc. We used a cut out graphic of a holly image.
Photo Ornaments Instructions
Gather the few supplies you need.
Drill a small hole in the top of your slice to hang string from.
Trace your wood slice over the photo for a rough estimate of where you will cut. You’ll be cutting INSIDE the line.
Cut out your photo inside your traced line anywhere from 1/4″ to 1/2″ so there will be some of the wood slice showing around the edge.
Mod Podge your image into the wood slice.
Add any trim you want. I put some cording around my image for a nice edge. You can glue ribbon etc. onto the top of the slice. I used a small piece of clipart for mine.
Yep… that’s me. Ü
