Wood Block Photo Ornaments

Needed:

  • Wood blocks
  • paint
  • scrapbook papers
  •  Modge Podge
  • Vinyl lettering or stickers (handwritten writing with a marker would be fine too)
  • eye screws
  • yarn and ribbon

Directions:

  1. Each child chose their paint color {mixed with silver glitter paint} and painted their block.
  2. Then I printed their photos, rounded the corners, {same as used for the framed portraits} and Modge Podge-d them on.
  3. I cut/rounded coordinating scrapbook colors & Modge Podge-d them on the sides.
  4. Using my Silhouette, I cut silver vinyl with each child’s initial and “2011” & applied them to the sides.
  5. Screwed in an eye screw to the top.
  6. Decorated them with fun yarn & ribbon.

Love these! I hope parents keep these forever. I know I would!
