I spent some time these past couple of months looking through Pinterest trying to find ideas for new photo projects to add to my inventory. And I found three things that I want to try making.
- Photo Ornaments
- Car Coasters
I tried making coasters a while back and it didn’t work out as well as I would have liked. But I talked to someone who also makes coasters and she suggested a few tips that I’m hoping to try.
I was actually going to work on them this winter. But I read the directions on the resin, and it said to only use in a well-vented room. So, I decided to put this project off until the spring so I can work in the garage and not die.
I found this project when my mom was down for a visit and she was able to help me get all the supplies that I needed to do this. In addition to the photos, I thought it would be cool to add fake snow or sand to each ornament depending on if the image was winter or summer.
I tried to make these, and it didn’t work the way I wanted to, so I got two giant hole punches to make circular cuts and see if that will work better.
I got this idea when we were at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. I saw them for sale and thought they would be fun to try to make. When I got the hole punches for the ornaments, I got one that was slightly smaller so I can make these round coasters too.
This is going to be another project that needs to be done when it warms up a bit. I’m hoping to spend a day making all my coasters so I can limit the amount of mess that I make.
My first craft fair isn’t until the end of April so hopefully, it is nice enough to make these a few weeks before then so I can add them to my inventory.
What photo projects are you guys making?

Sometimes I make puzzles out of my images for friends. Not everyone has wall space for photos, but almost everyone has room for a puzzle!
