Felt Christmas Photo Ornament – Craft for Kids

Felt Christmas Photo Ornament

I am back again with another Christmas craft to share with you guys. This time I’m sharing a pattern for you to use in making a photo frame Christmas ornament. I used felt cloth for this project since I still have a lot of scraps from my previous craft projects, but you can definitely use construction paper or just plain printer paper. If you opt to use plain printer paper, get your kids to add personal touches to the ornaments with markers and crayons!

This craft is perfect for kids to make homemade gifts. What grandparent, aunt or uncle would not love a homemade tree ornament filled with a picture of their loved one!
