Easy 50¢ Snowflake Ornaments

I was looking for some easy ornament gifts for family members to show off Connor's holiday photos. When I was at Joanns, I noticed these felt snowflakes and rhinestone stickers for $1 each.

To turn the snowflake into a frame opening, I cut out the middle section. The left snowflake shows how they looked when I bought them and the right snowflake shows how I cut out the middle.
Then I used the little rhinestones to accessorize the snowflake because...well, why not?

To make a backing for the frame, I used some white glitter felt and traced around the snowflake shape.

The turned out to be stars which is kinda cute!

Then I traced around the snowflake again so I would have the right size photo for the opening.

I glued the back of the photo to the felt star backing using some Elmer's glue.

And then I glued the photo onto the back of the snowflake and let it dry. I had to glue the corners again just to keep the edges down.

Using a large needle, I added a silver ribbon to the top of the snowflake.

Because I'm a crafty hoarder, I save old holiday cards. I found a glitter snowflake one and cut out a little piece to use as a label on the back of the frame.

We don't have a tree up this year (sad face), so I don't have any fun photos of it on a tree branch. But I'm sure it will look nice on the trees of the family members that get one!
