Student Ornaments

It's Monday Made It time!  I love it when Tara posts for Monday Made It on Sunday :)

So I spent all last night making these ornaments for my kids.  They turned out really cute and they were very easy to make!  
If you would like to make them for your kids, this is what you need:

1. Glass Ornaments- These were from Hobby Lobby.  They measure 2 5/8" and came in a box of 12 for $7.99.  They were 50% off this weekend.
2. Student Pictures- Printed on regular copy paper
3. Round Punch - Mine came from Joann's and measures 2.5 inches
4. Fake snow
5. Ribbon
To make them:
Just print out your pictures and cut them out with a round punch.  Roll up the picture and insert into the ornament.  Put some snow through the opening and put the metal top back on.  Last add some ribbon.  Like I said, pretty simple and the kids love them!  A couple of years ago I made them using pictures printed on transparencies because I saw that done online (can't remember where) and I couldn't even see the kids.  I'm not sure if it was a printer problem or the transparencies I was using, but it was a big fail!  

This years ornaments were much easier to make.  If you have any problems with the picture not unrolling, take some long tweezers and play with the picture a little.  That fixed most of mine up.  The snow was easy to put in, but make sure to not get the kind that is overly flaky because the flakes tend to cover the picture.  The stuff I used was really easy to get in there.  I even had some snow filled dreams thanks to these ornaments!

Now make sure to check out everyone's projects for Monday Made It!

  1. Your ornaments turned out really cute! I just actually purchased some of those glass ornaments and was going to put melted snowmen in there, but this might work too! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Those are super cute! I usually have my students make the snowman handprint ornaments with my students with their parents. I did see these clear ones yesterday at Hobby Lobby and almost bought them!

  5. That's a really cute idea! I wish I had known those were on sale last weekend. I just saw another great idea on pinterest yesterday where you fill the whole bulb with fake snow, use a marker to put on eyes and a nose, and then attach a felt scarf and pipe cleaner ear muffs to make a snowman bulb. Too many cute ideas to choose from!
