Christmas Memories Ornament

The new Kreinik Ornament Frame is a fast, inexpensive but elegant way to make ornaments for the holidays. Just add a personal photo for a quick-but-keepsake gift for a family member or friend.

Materials needed for Option 1:
  • 4" scrap of holiday fabric
  • 1 1/2" round piece of red felt
  • photo cut slightly smaller than the round red felt
  • Kreinik Iron-on metallic threads in colors to coordinate with your fabric. We used #16 Braid in 6300 Meadow Green, and #16 Braid 6131 Silverberry
  • home iron or craft iron
  • Press Cloth
  • Kreinik gold or silver Ornament Frame
  • glue stick, glue gun or Treasure Tape sheet

Instructions:
  1. Turn your iron on to the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  2. Decorate your background fabric with the iron-on threads. Use the threads to outline a pattern on the fabric, or fill in lines. You can also write words, or just do curly q's. Lay your iron-on thread at a starting point, cover with a Teflon Press Cloth or use your craft iron that has teflon on it, and press the thread for several seconds until it adheres. Continue working with the thread this way until your design is complete.

  1. Put metallic thread border around your red felt circle using your iron and a color of iron-on thread. Then attach your photo on top of the felt circle using glue or Treasure Tape. Then attach the felt/photo to the center of your decorated background fabric.
  2. When embellishing is complete, trim the fabric piece to fit inside the ornament frame. Make a sandwich of the metallic ornament frame front and the backer card that comes with the frame. Secure all layers with the Treasure Tape that comes with the frame.
  3. Add a decorative bow at the top if desired.

Materials needed for Option 2:
  • Kreinik gold or silver Ornament Frame
  • Photo cut to fit inside the ornament frame
  • Kreinik Treasure Tape sheet of Star shapes (sheet includes several sizes of stars)
  • red beadlets
  • glue stick or Treasure Tape sheet

Instructions:
  1. Using glue stick or Treasure Tape sheet, attach your photo to the Ornament Frame backer, then, using the Treasure Tape dots that come with the frame, attach the Ornament Frame cut-out circle on top.
  2. Place one of the Treasure Tape stars on the frame, slightly overlapping the photo. Add more star shapes if desired.
  3. Cut strips from the other star shapes or from another Treasure Tape sheet to replicate the trails shooting out from the side of the star, and place on your fame (see photo for guide).
  4. Remove the red liner on the shapes, then sprinkle red beadlets on the double-sided tape to cover all sticky areas.
  5. Add ornament hanger as desired.
