MAKE: dyed wood photo frame ornaments.
The holidays are ALMOST here! Are you ready? (I’m not!!!)
If you are looking for a last minute DIY gift… I’ve got a sweet and sentimental handmade idea for you. If you don’t have the time this week, save this idea for next Christmas (Or even for Mother’s Day).
I’ve been saving a picture of my daughter and putting it in an ornament every year. (Gosh, this is her THIRD Christmas… timing is flying by so fast!) The past two years I just put her photo in a frame but this year I thought I’d create the photo ornament myself.
I found some really cute Polaroid shaped wood cutouts at Michaels and decided to dye the wood a red color to complement the red jacket she wore in the photo.
Did you know you can dye wood with fabric dye? You can! Remember the DIY dyed clothespins I made a few years back? I used the same leftover dye (that I received from Tulip a few years ago) and used the red shade to dye my wood cutouts.
Learn how to create this dyed wood photo ornament in my video below. This craft would make a great keepsake or special gift for grandparents.
You don’t have to dye the wood pieces. You could paint the frames or leave the veneer raw. Either way, it would make a charming ornament!
