Rustic Christmas Craft: DIY Wood Slice Photo Memory Ornaments

Today I am sharing how to make these simple DIY wood slice memory ornaments.  I made these particular ones from pictures from our last visit to see our family in the Midwest. We had such a great time that I wanted to commemorate it on ornaments for our tree this year.  I made three sets of three to pass out to the family. They will make great stocking stuffers too.

DIY Wood Slice Photo Ornaments Instructions



  1. Depending on the size of your wood slices, resize your photos to fit accordingly. I find it easy to place all the photos on one Word document.  The photos should be slightly larger than the diameter of the wood slice. Print them out on HP Photo paper.
  2. Cut out each individual picture.  Place the wood slice on top of the photo to use as a guide to trim it to fit. You may need to make several adjustments.
  3. Use Mod Podge and a foam brush to glue the photo to your wood slice.  If desired, place another coat of Mod Podge on top of the photo.
  4. Once the photo is dry, screw in a small eye hook on the top of the ornament.  This will take a little pressure.
  5. Embellish the top with ribbon and tie on a twine hanger.
  6. Make a set of three or four to give to friends and family.  You can make it a theme, like pictures from a special vacation or use the kid’s school photos.
