DIY Christmas Ornament Craft

Create lasting memories with photo Christmas tree ornaments that are easy to make and darling to display.

Everyone loves to take photos of their children and this is a great idea to make the most of them.

One of our favorite Christmas craft ideas is this adorable tree ornament. We created an ornament with photos of the kids dressed in their cutest outfits from Fanciu.com.

The project starts with a photo ornament from the craft store, but gets a personalized makeover featuring the shots from a fun family photoshoot.

  • Ornament kit
  • Camera
  • Kids dressed in their Christmas best (check out Fanciu.com for some darling looks for less)

Purchase your ornament kit. We found ours at the local craft store.

Print out your digital photos and cut out the photo to the size of the ornament display. Insert the photos and hang on the tree.

We love the idea of making several ornaments to place on the tree at once. It's always fun to watch Christmas guests admire the tree and hunt for all the photo ornaments.

You can also start a collection of ornaments and add to it each year. It's such a special way to watch the kids grow and document their cute Christmas outfits.

This is such a sweet and sentimental project that anyone can do it. It's a great Christmas decoration idea for your tree, and can be preserved and reused for years to come!

Even better, the ornaments also make great gifts for the grandparents on a budget! Between the inexpensive supplies and amazing, yet budget-friendly outfits from Fanciu, it's a festive gift that won't break bank.
