Second day of Christmas


On the Second day of Christmas my true love gave to me.... Personalised ornaments for the tree...

I love family Christmas ornaments. I have made baubles with our names in glitter, tiny photo frame ornaments, and wooden cut out stockings with names on them. I love something personalised specific to our family around the house at Christmas.

I don't have instructional photos.. sorry...

My dad cut me 4cmx4cm cubes from free wood offcuts from the side of the road ;)

I painted them white using normal acrylic paints.

Then I printed out 4 photos of each person in the family shrunk down to the same size.

I used PVA glue to glue on the photos to four sides of each cube. I then used the same PVA glue and painted over the whole cube (the bottom at a seperate time) If you have Mod Podge use that.

I then hand screwed in an eye hook at the top and attached a string. I tied a red bow around each hook.

Here I am in all my Christmas Glory :)


We're just a bunch of blockheads :)

Those are way cute. My parents would go nuts for these on their tree. I love the fact that you could put so many pictures on one block. Very cute idea.

My parents would love these on their tree.

You could put one photo on one side one year and keep doing that every year and see how much you've changed.
