Photo Ornament Critters

Hey Ladies-

In preparation for Christmas, my kids and I have been doing a few crafts to put us in the holiday mood!  We took a field trip through a local big box store and found a few things we thought would be fun and simple to do.  For our first project we added a little paint and school pictures to these cute wooden ornaments!

Here is what you need:

  • School Picture(s)
  • Wooden Ornament(s) (They were only $.99 each!)
  • Paint palette or paper plate
  • Various acrylic paints
  • School Glue
  • Assorted Paint Brushes
  • Scissors
  • Cup of water to clean brushes
  • Paper towel
  • Newspaper (optional if you are concerned about keeping your work service clean

Super easy and fun way for the kids to help create their unique Christmas ornaments!

Happy Crafting!
