Capturing Special Moments with Photo Card Ornaments

Pin It

I thought I'd surprise my in-laws with a homemade ornament this year. This ornament features two of my photos, which I had previously printed on business cards and which have personal meaning for us and for them.


One side of the ornament is a photo of a wagon wheel that we gifted to my in-laws for their lawn decor a couple years ago. 


The other side features a photo of a rusted vintage lawn chair that my mother-in-law stripped and painted last summer. It now is a shiny, bright red!


They loved the personalized and thoughtful nature of this gift. I think it meant more to them than anything I could have purchased. I love being able to use my photography and a few simple DIY products to capture special memories for the special people in our lives!

Have you done any DIY gift projects this season?

  4. What a lovely and personal ornament. We don't do gifts over Christmas but I did make all of my new decorations this year myself. I hope to make lots of gifts for the coming year in my Christmas break.
