You can make these fun ornaments using images of your own kids, family members, or cool portraits you find online. Turn them into anything—Marie Antoinette, a beautiful señorita, or a Little Rascal.

portraits photocopied on craft paper scissors

felting wool


embellishments needle

silver thread

  1. Cut out portraits, leaving some extra room on top of their heads for the wool.
  2. Take your wool—pull it apart a little and twist it around the heads for hair. Secure with some glue.
  3. Glue on different embellishments, like flowers, ribbons, or buttons.
  4. Use a needle and silver thread to make hoops so you can hang the ornaments on the tree.
