[$1] photo ornaments

Some folks get their kicks down on Route 66.

Not me. No, sirree. I get my kicks at the dollar section of Michaels or Target.

That’s where I found these tiny, red frames a few weeks ago.

I thought they’d make nifty photo ornaments.

The openings are 2 inches square, so I cropped some photos of my kids in photoshop and turned them to black & white.

Then I popped the photos into the frames…

and ran some red & white baker’s twine through the loops at the top.

Then I hung my $1 photo ornament on the tree and marvelled at my thrifty, simple creation.

Make some. You’ll marvel, too.

  4. Oooh! I need to get me some of those! I try to do a photo frame for us and the grandparents every year. It’s getting harder to keep up with now that we have 3 kiddos!
