DIY Instagram Ornament
I’ve been looking for ways to capture so many of the memories from our trip to Uganda this summer. It was such a once in a lifetime experience. There were so many footprints left on our hearts. Above, that is sweet George. He attended a school we worked at in the slums of Kampala. He’s deaf, but his sweet smile sings God’s praises. We recently found out that he might be able to hear out of one of his ears with a hearing aid. Praise Jesus. Meeting him is a moment I’ll never forget.
This ornament was quick and easy, my two favorite descriptors of a craft project!
I created my “instagram” pics by saving and inserting them into a Word document. I resized each one to be 2.5″ x 2.5″, a half inch smaller than the side of my cube. I have found a great website however that will print your actual instagram pics in all kids of keepsake ways. It called Printstagram. Quite fitting…
After cutting them out with my trusty paper cutter, I used Mod Podge to adhere each picture to the sides of the cube. Make sure and add a layer on top to to seal it all together! I think Mod Podge might be the best craft invention ever…well along with the Cameo!
I used some Christmas washi tape to dress the sides up a little and took it all the way across the design on the bottom to cover it up…and just like any Christmas gift, this ornament was, topped with a glittery bow!
It’s perfect on my handmade ornament tree. This one might be my new favorite!
The quote on the opposite side is from David Platt.
It couldn’t ring more true. If you are looking for an organization to donate to this holiday season, I strongly recommend
The faces behind the difference Sozo is making in Uganda are true servants of God. They have heard HIS call and are reaching out to spread the gospel and change lives. I was blessed to be a part of it first hand. Click the link above to find out more and/or to donate!
Linking up to some fabulous parties.
