Decorate your tree with your favorite family photos

Turn your favorite photos into ornaments and personalize your Christmas tree.  Simply print out your most loved snaps, and transfer them to painted wooden ornaments using a gel medium.  These have to sit over night to allow the medium to dry and the image to adhere, but these easy-to-replicate results are well worth the wait!

Put these ornaments together in a snap.  Simply glue a 3D cut out to a stained wooden ornament plaque (both available at craft stores) and hang.  If you have a little extra time, these would look wonderful painted, but if left unfinished they still have a charming, rustic look.
