Martha Mondays: Picture Frame Ornaments

This week’s project was picture frame ornaments, chosen by MaryAnn at Stirrin It Up.

This is a really simple craft that would be great to do with kids. You print out the template, trace onto card stock and them glue and glitter them, after punching a hole at the top. Once the glitter dries, you make a cut out in one of them and glue a photo in it and then glue the back on. Very, very easy. Even I could do it.

In full disclosure I used Martha’s glitter glue and glitter that they sent me. I have to say I was quite pleased with the quality of both. The glitter glue has a brush attached inside the lid – just like rubber cement jars and I found that to be very convenient. Martha’s glitter was, as always, very nice.

    Thanks for giving me so many great ideas this year. I’m trying to buy less, make more–so this is just what I need to read.

  5. What a great idea! I’m definitely going to try this with my craft-loving kids. Thanks for the tip.

    Yours look terrific. I cheated and didn’t do the thing where you make an X and peel back the space for the photo- I just cut it out!

    I’m having an issue with getting the right size of the family picture to fit into the frame size of the templates provided on Martha Stewarts craft site. I did crop the picture but its still too big (family of 4) to fit into the templates provided.Any suggestions? I could resize the template but im afraid I’ll alter the design while doing it.

    I don’t have any suggestions for you on this one, other than to choose a photo that has a lot of blank space so you can crop a lot around the edges.
