Homemade Photo Ornaments {using wood paper}

Every year, we get new ornaments. This year, instead of spending a bunch of money buying them, I thought I could make my own homemade photo ornaments! So I sat down and whipped up a few of these cuties to hang on our tree, and also a couple to give to Grandma for Christmas.  These are so easy to make, and a little addicting, I’m not going to lie.

 I love the natural look that this ARC Crafts wood paper gives to the ornaments, and it’s WAY easier to work with than trying to cut and sand a board. And it really is real wood, just really thin. It’s awesome stuff.

Would you like to make your own?

You’ll need:

Wood Paper
Die cutter (Lifestyles Evolution Machine
Hole Punch and eyelets (I used my crop-a-dile)
Stickers (I used thickers from American Crafts)

A lot of the products and tools I’m using for this project came from We R Memory Keepers and Lifestyle Crafts. I’m so excited to be one of their Studio team members! And I’m even more excited to be able to offer you a 20% discount on EVERY product in their store! There’s a link over there —> on my sidebar, with the discount code CREATIVEMOM, which will get you your discount!

 Start by cutting your wood paper whatever shape you want.

My kids and I used my Lifestyles Crafts Evolution machine. They always fight over who gets to turn the handle!

 You’ll need to cut your back out of wood paper, then cut your photo slightly smaller. For your front, you’ll cut the outside of your “frame” the same size as your back, and the inside just slightly smaller than your photo.

 Did I mention the wood papers come with adhesive backs! Or without.

 You’ll stick your photo onto the back, and then stick your front frame over top.

 Stick some stickers on for the year, then punch a hole in the top, and set your eyelet. And sting some twine through to hang it with.

 And you’re done!

Hey there! Leave me some comment love!

I am a crafty, do it yourself mom, doing everyday mom stuff with a little glitter in my hair and paint on my jeans. And blogging about it all along the way. I am a firm believer that no matter the project, with the right tools, good instructions, and a little bravery, YOU can do anything. {click on my photo to read more about me}
