• Quick and Easy Modern DIY Photo Ornaments in Under 5 Minutes

November 27, 2018

Written in collaboration with Parabo Press

The holidays can be super busy.  Do you always feel as if you never have enough time to get everything done?  If you answered yes, then I'm virtually fist pumping you right now and I've made this DIY for you.

 It's a quick and easy DIY photo ornament with Parabo's square prints.  They are pics of our family at Christmas over the years and bring back wonderful memories.  I can also say they are a huge hit with family and friends when they come to visit.

 DIY Parabo Photo Ornament


1. Parabo 4" square prints - this link takes you to their website & because we are in the spirit of giving this holiday, you get your first set FREE on us.

2. Ribbon

3. Eyelets/grommets with eyelet/grommet punch (optional).  The cheapest place to get a good one is Michael's and use their 50% coupon to purchase.  If you don't have this you can simply use a hole punch.  


1. Using a hole punch, put a hole in the top, middle of each square about 1/2" from the top.

If also using an eyelet/grommet punch, install the eyelet/grommet.

2. Insert your ribbon.  I used a 1/8' wide and 9" long ribbon for each.  I found a really pretty vintage, velvet ribbon on Etsy.  You can use whatever you would like.

Hang them on the tree, garland, fridge or wherever else your holiday heart fancies.  Doing holiday crafts like these are some of the best traditions we have around the holidays.  Hope you have fun making these and have a wonderful holiday.
