Inexpensive Framed Christmas Gifts

I buy a bunch of frames at garage sales during the summer months, then buy ornaments at the Dollar Tree, and I use Christmas papers I’ve had in my stash.

The paper pad I used is DCWV’s Jolly Whimsy Stack.

I recommend using E6000 glue along with hot glue to make sure the ornaments stay attached to the glass of the photo frames. If you only use hot glue, there’s a good chance that the ornament will pop back off if there’s any temperature change (cold to hot, hot to cold.)

I clean the glass of each photo frame, then put the Christmas paper inside the frame, and glue the ornament to the glass on the outside of the frame.

Two of the frames I used, came from the Dollar Tree with a piece of art inside. I used the art for something else and kept the frame.

One of the frames, I used a Christmas tree that I made out of old sheet music. I also added to that frame a sentiment from Spellbinder’s Deer Santa set of stickers.

The kissing owl diamond painting came from and here’s the link to it. I really loved it and thought someone at the assisted living home would love it too..
