The holiday season is a time for creating lasting memories with loved ones, and what better way to cherish those moments than with a personalized Christmas ornament? Much like our printable photo gift tags, I’m excited to share a delightful and nostalgic free printable Christmas photo ornament that allows you to insert a cherished photo, adding a touch of warmth and sentimentality to your tree. I love how they turned out!
We’ve done a version of this before with these printable ornaments, but whereas before we inserted some bells or treats, here I wanted to lean into the idea of turning an ornament into a photo moment. I love how these printable photo ornaments turned out! Just print off, cut out, and add your photo! I love the idea of adding in just a few here and there or doing a full on tree of memories from the year or past.
The Charm of Retro Christmas:
I really wanted to lean into a retro style ornament because the sleek yet bulbous shapes are so inventive.
