Mirrored Photo Ornaments

I’m so excited to show you how to make these ornaments because not only are they gorgeous, but you won’t believe how easy they are to make!  I promise you don’t even need to be crafty to make these!

I started out with some mirror ornaments I got at Hobby Lobby (for half off, of course)  and some photos I printed on Avery Clear Sticker Paper.

For the circle ornaments, I just cut out the circular photos, removed the backing…

And stuck them in place!

For the other shape (not sure what to call that shape), I traced the mirror onto the photo and cut it out.

I drew a line about 1/4″ in from the edge so the photo wouldn’t be on the beveled part of the mirror.

Then I stuck it into place and had some super classy looking ornaments!

You could also print words on the photos, like “Christmas 2011.”

Turkey Hand/Foot-print Keepsake Plate

 Last year I celebrated my first Thanksgiving as a mother of two; I had a whole lot to be thankful for but not much extra time!  I made this sweet plate after Thanksgiving– too late to put it out for decoration, but I’m so glad I took a little time to make it so I can enjoy it this year, and many more to come!  Their sweet little hands and feet won’t fit nicely on a plate too much longer!

I used a plain white ceramic plate from Dollar Tree.

To make the turkey’s feathers I had my older son make 3 hand-prints using red, orange, and yellow acrylic paint.  Once that was dry, I made a brown footprint with baby brother’s adorable pudgy little foot (look at those tiny toes)!

I used black, white, red, and orange puff paint bottles to complete the turkey face and write the words on the plate.

This year I’m thankful that I took the time to preserve their little hands and feet so I can always remember our first Thanksgiving as a family of four!
