DIY Glass Photo Ornament

15 Minutes
Easy

I love making photo gifts during the holidays, especially ones that can be cherished year after year. Ever wonder how to get your family photo inside a glass bulb? Check out this tutorial for an easy method. No special tools required, a photo, drinking glass, fishing line, pencil, and a decorative ribbon.
Each year I like to make one of these ornaments to hold our family photo. I think it will be great when the children are older to look back on how they grew over the years.

These photo ornaments make a lovely *cheap* gift to give Grandma, Aunts/ Uncles or close neighbours and friends.

    Yes...definitely going to try it. Lost my grandson earlier this year. Thought it would be a great keepsake for his mom.
