Make these DIY Christmas ornaments to hang on your tree this holiday season. Gather the kids and turn the afternoon into family bonding and crafting fun. Just be sure to keep the floral clippers out of reach of the little ones. What You'll Need Materials Pinecones Family photos Small floral clippers Craft glue Card stock (Recollection's Card Stock Paper) Pencil Circle template (make yourself or buy at a crafts store) Decorative paper Ribbon Instructions Remove pinecone scales with small floral clippers. Glue a photograph or photocopy of a picture onto card stock. Using a template for a circle or other shape (you can make it yourself or buy one at a crafts store), outline the shape onto your photograph with a pencil and then cut it out. Hot-glue pinecone scales around perimeter at the back of the cutout, so the scales peek from behind the edge. Alternatively, you can glue scales onto the front of the cutout photograph. Finish the ornament with decorative paper glued to the back with a few dots of craft glue. Glue a looped length of ribbon between backing paper and photo to make a hanger.
