DIY Photo Ornament Or Photo Keepsake

5 Materials
1 Hour
If your kids are in school then you probably have lots of “school pictures” from every holiday (at least my kids do). Half the time I don’t know whether to order them or forgo. What do you do with all those extra pictures anyway? I’m not just talking about the holiday, I’m talking about sports pictures and dance pictures and that doesn’t even touch our phone pictures!I hate to keep pictures stored away in a box or album somewhere.Will my kids even want them when they get older? That's when I got the idea to create my own personalized ornaments or keepsakes.
This is the "keepsake" I'm using for this project. It really just a fun little bottle with a cork lid.After you gather the supplies, remove the top off of the ornament or keepsake.
Pour a little floor polish into the container.
Gently roll the picture and slip it into the container.Roll the picture around in the polish.After a few minutes of soaking your photo in the polish, use your paintbrush to press the picture on the surface.
Pour the excess polish out of the container into another cup.Let it sit for about 10 minutes to dry.Make sure the photo is situated exactly where you want it.Once the picture is how you want it to look, add your filler material.I chose to use the red hot candies because they looked so festive against the kids Christmas picture. Glitter works great for this project too.By the way, this craft works great for storing sports pictures too!
Happy Crafting!
