#12 - Picture Ornaments

12 Days of Homemade Ornaments.


These are special. My babies! Need I say more?

For this project you will need copies of your favorite photos, fabrics, glue, and embellishments.
 Cut your fabric into a photo mat. I used some cardboard a little smaller than my photograph as a template. Now glue the mat onto the front of the photo. You don't have to sew around it for this project, but I like how it looks.

Pull some fringe and add a hanger to the back.

Add embellishments.... 
 Memory Lane.

I hope you were inspired! Thank you so much for stopping by
