Faux Polaroid Ornaments

This orna­ment is going to do some seri­ous sparkling on the tree as I cov­ered each Maya Road Photo Frame Chip­board piece with iri­des­cent glit­ter. It shim­mers and sparkles beau­ti­fully and will look gor­geous when the tree is lit at night. If you want to make an orna­ment like this one or sim­i­lar orna­ments below are the prod­ucts I used.

Maya Road Photo Frames Chip­board, Maya Road Cloud White 1″ Ink Pad, Iri­des­cent Glit­ter, Dia­mond Glaze, Red & White Twine, Red Mini Ging­ham Trim,1  Holly & Berry Pick, 1 Gold Jin­gle Bell, Black & White Pho­tos, Black Card­stock, Glue Stick, Strong Liq­uid Adhe­sive, Scis­sors, Sand­ing Block

Step Out for Mak­ing This Ornament:

  • Remove cen­ter square from photo frame and set aside.
  • Apply white ink to the photo frame, place Dia­mond Glaze over the top of the white ink, gen­er­ously sprin­kle iri­des­cent glit­ter on top, tap off excess glit­ter and let dry.
  • Apply glue stick adhe­sive to the square, attached photo, sand edges.
  • Place square back into photo frame.
  • Apply glue stick adhe­sive to the back of the photo frame and attach black card­stock. I decided on black since that is the color on the back of old Polaroid pictures.

You can layer the orna­ments onto each other as I did and accent it using a holly leaves and berry pick that I accented with a red and white ging­ham bow. The hanger is cre­ated from red & white twine accented with a small gold jin­gle bell.
