I am so excited to be sharing these DIY Christmas ornaments with all of you. They turned out terrific and I can't wait to see them on my Christmas tree in just a couple of short weeks.
3. Mod Podge
4. Christmas card stock
I started with these pretty patterned coaster that I got on a clearance rack from Micheal's. They are circle coasters with a pattern on one side and cork on the other side. I went through our family pictures that we had taken last year (by my very talented friend Mason Photography) and picked out some great black and white photos that I just LOVE and 1 coloured photo of each of the kids.
Spread the Mod Podge onto the coaster then position your picture where you want it. Make sure the heads are not too close to the top cause you will still need to drill a hole up there to be able to hang these ornaments. When the picture side is dry, cut off the extra paper with a pair of scissors. On the back side of the coster I chose some pretty Christmas paper. Spread the Mod Podge on that side and place your paper onto the coaster. Let dry and cut around the coaster.
The fun part comes next...drilling!!! Choose a bit size big enough to put string through but not too big that the coaster will break.
Finally choose some pretty ribbon so your ornaments can hang up on the tree. Thats it your done! Can you believe it was that easy. These took less then half a morning to make. Hope you enjoy creating your own family ornaments this year.
