Paper Tree Photo Ornaments

Here are the second little paper craft ornament we made with the same pictures. These Paper Tree Photo Ornaments were part of a curriculum, but they could easily be duplicated. Just cut out two tree shapes and a circle for the photo to show through, or glue the photo on the front. Add a ribbon for hanging. I put the pictures in before the kids painted them which worked well for the older ones, but not so well with the younger ones so I had to replace one picture and the paint wiped off the other.Paper Tree Photo Ornaments
