Christmas past memories ornament

2011 Christmas ornament me and Larry1 close up
While I was digging thru bins this morning I found some clear plastic ornaments. On my desk, I had a photo of my older brother, Larry and I taken when we were approximately 7 &and 8 years old at my grandparents house on a long ago Christmas eve.
Since the photo was black and white, I left it that way when I made a copy. I cut the photo to fit inside the ornament after I took the top off. I curled the photo and inserted it inside the ornament. Then I took a used dryer sheet and with a shish ka bob skewer and rubbed the dryer sheet around the front of the ornament before putting in some fake snow flakes.

I then tied a silver bow to the hanger, and added Spangle holly berries and leaves. Then I used twill Christmas ribbon left over from last year with Merry Christmas on it.
This was a quick and easy ornament and would be a great project for kids to use their school pictures and give an ornament to their grandparents.
