Photo Frame Ornaments

I love the idea of creating a collection of photos of my family members to hang on my tree. You could create a timeline showing children as they grow each year or simply create a collection of nearest and dearest friends, family and even pets to appreciate.


What You Will Need:

  • Small wooden photo frame
  • Spray Glue or PVA Craft Glue
  • Glitter
  • Ribbon
  • Hook
  • Spray Glazing


Step 1: Remove the glass from your frame. (If the glass is permanent, just stick some newspaper or baking paper over it to protect it from the glue and the glitter).

Step 2: Screw a hook into the top of the frame so you can hang it on the tree.

Step 3: Lay the frame on some newspaper and spray with glue.

Step 4: Immediately sprinkle glitter over the entire frame.

Step 5: Carefully lift the frame and shake excess glitter off.

Step 6: Lay the frame to dry on a drying rack.

Step 7: Cover the frame with glazing. I used a spray glossy glazing.

Step 8: Replace the glass and insert a photograph. (I added some sequins because I used a deeper memory frame)

Step 9: Attach some ribbon and your frame is ready to hang on the tree.
