  • How to make a Christmas tree ornament. Wood Photo Transfer Ornaments - Step 1
    Step 1

    Make sure you use a photo printed on basic computer paper with a laser printer!

    First, make sure the wooden discs are totally dry. We did this by sticking them in the oven for a few hours at 200 degrees -- it made the house smell great.

    Cut out your photo to fit the wooden disc. Coat the photo with the gel medium and place it face-down onto the disc. Carefully smooth out all the bubbles, and let it sit overnight.

    The next morning, use a wet washcloth to dampen the photo, rubbing it very gently until the paper starts to come off -- and you start to see the image on the wood underneath! Continue to do this until all the paper is gone, but be careful -- if you rub too hard, the image can come off too.

    Once you've rubbed off the paper, paint a coat of Mod Podge and let it dry completely. Drill a hole, string it with red ribbon, and hang it on the tree!
