Creating Photo Ornaments

Hi there!!! I posted an IG story over the weekend about my class ornaments and I received tons of requests for detailed directions. I'm a total visual learner and I know that watching me do it all might be more helpful than reading the steps. This is how they look when they are done:

Before you begin watching, please note that I took pictures of my kids using a Snapchat filter. That is how I got the reindeer ears on there. Second, I worked a 13 hour day today and I sincerely hope that all my directions were clear...but it's been a long day (Christmas show at school). Please let me know if you need clarification on any of these steps. 

I used clear shatterproof ornaments from Hobby Lobby that measure 3.15 inches in diameter. Anything over 3 inches is super easy to work with. Depending on the size ornaments that you buy, you will have to resize the circles so that they fit. Just play with a sample until you get the sizing just right.

Part 2


  • Use regular paper instead of photo paper. Regular paper will uncurl better inside the ornament.
  • Use shatterproof ornaments. This will ensure that all your kids go home with their gift intact! 
  • Take the pictures against a pure white surface. I like to use my whiteboard. This will make the background removal so much easier! 

This is my go to gift every year! The kids and parents LOVE them so much!

  1. Do the ornaments come in a pack or are they singles? About how much for a class set of 22?


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a note:)
