How Turn Kids Art Into An Ornament

We are so excited to partner with Photoball.com to share this simple gift idea with you. Their awesome site allows you to customize ornaments and sports balls with printed images for a one-of-a-kind gift.

The ornaments are made of flexible PVC vinyl, so they won’t shatter or break. And because the image is printed directly onto the surface, your custom ornament will last for years to come!

To create your ornament, simply upload a photo or scan of your child’s artwork into the Photoball.com Design Wizard. Once your order is placed, it will be shipped in 3 business days or less.

Here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate a custom photo ornament into your holidays:

Christmas Tradition

Begin a new tradition! Scan your favorite piece of artwork your child brought home from school each year and watch as their talents grow year-to-year.

Keepsake Ornament

Make a keepsake. Have every student in your child’s class sign a piece of paper. Scan it and upload it to create an ornament their teacher will cherish.

Memorialize Your Card

Memorialize your card. You spend all year capturing your family photo for your Christmas card — put it on an ornament every year, too.

Celebrate Milestones

Celebrate milestones. Record baby’s first Christmas, wedding photos, and more by adding these memories to a photo ornament.

Pet Christmas Ornaments

Don’t forget your pets! How cute would it be to put your puppy or kitten on a photo ornament?

What better way to make an ornament craft your own than creating it yourself.

For even more fun, have your child draw directly on the ornament with Sharpie markers. They can draw pictures, write their names, write messages, the possibilities are endless.

I love this Christmas ornament art where kids have colored on plain white ornaments with blue, purple, and orange markers.
Sometimes making an ornament by hand is the best family tradition!

This is a super fun way to get them involved. You could have them draw a cool frame around their artwork or sign the ornament. They can even dress up a blank one!

Each ornament comes ready-to-hang in a clear acrylic box that is great for gift wrapping.
