Sparkly Frame Ornament

Hi, friends!
Can you believe it’s DECEMBER?!
That means:
24 days until Christmas!
13 days until my birthday
and the mega Birthday Celebration Ornament Giveaway!
One Artsy Mama
To get us in the ornament mood, here’s a tutorial for you!








– colored craft sticks {or plain ones and acrylic paint}


– glitter


– craft glue


– printed photo trimmed to 3″x3″


– ribbon




The colored craft sticks and glitter we used were generously provided by Every so often, they surprise us with a fabulous assortment of craft supplies to sample, and these were a part of the holiday kit we received in November. I love that the sticks are already colored {saves the time and mess of painting them!} and the glitter tubes have great shaker tops that really do help minimize spilling and extra mess. products are available at local Walmart stores.



STEP 1: Line up 11 craft sticks. Glue photo in center.




STEP 2: Use craft glue to attach four more sticks horizontally; two at the top and two at the bottom.
STEP 3: Glue four more sticks on, vertically this time; two on the left and two on the right.

STEP 4: Spread craft glue on top surface and sprinkle with glitter.


To make this an ornament, glue a ribbon to the back. You could also turn it into a magnet if, like us, you’re already going to need a whole other tree just for the ornaments your little crafter{s} are making this year!





Here’s the finished product…do you love my fun new tablecloth? A Walmart special!




Here’s how it looks hanging. We don’t have our tree yet since we get a real one and last year when we cut it down Thanksgiving weekend, it turned into a crispy critter by Christmas! So, you get a shot of the ornament on the china cabinet instead…use your imagination!




Well, there you have it! It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s cheap, and it’s got GLITTER! Remember, glitter makes everything better!

Happy Crafting!
