Today I am sharing sentimental ornaments mod podge, and the Dollar tree items.
Had some recent fabulous family photos, that I thought I would make into some ornaments for the tree. Here is the short self explanatory tutorial, and the end result. I just love seeing my family on the tree. I still have some more to make.
|I bought some holiday cards from the Dollar tree (2 for a dollar) then I scanned my photos on my scanner at home
Modge podge, I have not used this in a while
|Cut the card with my craft scissors, and modged podged the picture on the card.
|Cut some nice words from the card itself and embellished my ornament
|And there you have it on the tree. I love it! And look, there is a CLOTHES pin to attach it to the tree! I kept mine original, I could have made in glitter but there is enough bling going on.
|This one I made look a bit old and worn
|And I just love this pic of my Mom and I. What a fun, cheap and easy project. I will have for a life time!
Thanks for all the hosts that I will be joining this week. I do have to go finish my Christmas cards and shopping.
You go on with your bad self!!! I love this idea, and have never seen THIS done before!!!!Great job lady!
These are darling! Mind if I give it a try?!
Oh no! Here we go! She's got the modge podge out again. LOL! Seriously, those are wonderful! I would give it a try if I wasn't needing to finish up my crafty wreaths. I like the one of you and your Mom too, yall are both so pretty and sooo photogenic. Great job!

Those are great Debbie. You are getting quite crafty my friend.
They turned out great, what a great idea as well. Better than all my little ornaments filled with a face of my family:)

Nice to see the Podge in play. What a fun idea. I had missed the Podge while you were away on "mental break". I knew the Podge would get the best of you.
Hey…what about Podging the whole tree… now there's a Podging idea…
I think I need to wake up more from my wee-little nap before commenting anymore.

Too cute! I bought some Modge Podge awhile back, but haven't opened it. Would you believe I've never made anything with Modge Podge???

These turned out awesome and look Great on your tree. I have lots of ornament 'frames' on my tree that I've collected for Years!! Your's are much better because they are bigger & more creative for sure!! Love this! Thanks for sharing!!! I'm hoping to get some good family photoes in a couple of weeks when all the boys are Home!!!! 🙂
My kind of project…fast, easy, and cute ;o)

I always knew you were going to make these holidays special for us. So, what do you have up your sleeve next……mmmmmmm… wondering.
Oh you broke out the good ole Mod Podge! Mine has been slowly fermenting in a cupboard. I think I burned myself out for a while there but you've inspired me to go and rescue it!! Your decorations are awesome!
I love these ornaments! I love seeing pictures on a tree! I might just give this a try 🙂
