DIY Unfinished Wood Picture Frame Christmas Ornaments
Really cute gift idea for family
I had my four-year-old son paint these ornaments to give as Christmas gifts last year. I bought some paints at a local craft store (can't remember if this set came with paint?) so that he would have enough paint and a good variety of colors. He did a great job getting through almost all of them (got a little tired of sitting still to paint!). I found a cute photo of his face to go in them. The only quality issue was that some of the backing pieces were difficult or impossible to fit back into the hole; I'm not sure how well they will hold together over the years. I actually wouldn't mind paying a bit more for something more durable, given how cute these are.

Easy photo ornaments
Overall, ornaments were easy for 3rd graders to paint. Only 1 out of 36 was unusable with rough wood and broken clasp. Kids can paint own designs. Use base coat first and maybe a clear coat once paint dries. Only con is round backings for photos were difficult to get back in once ornament was painted. We did not paint the round backing.

Very nice, bigger and better made than expected
Ordered these for my child's 3rd grade class to paint and decorate. They were bigger than I thought they would be, and actually have a nice hinged back to insert a picture from behind. Well-made wooden ornaments that come with the hanging string, even!

The ornaments looked nice but some fell apart when I tried to take off the back to insert the photo. The screws were too close to the edge so they came out. The screws could not be put back in, so the backs had to be glued on to hold the picture in place.

Ornaments were what you paid for
The ornaments were perfect for the price. They were a little rough in some places, but using the tempura paint the kids didn't even notice! The back was a little difficult to remove, so I had to help the kids, but they looked great when they were completed!

Edges were a little rough so I had to sand some of them. Back panel is very difficult to get off on some for putting in picture. Not sure how tricky getting in picture will be once I paint. I kind of wish they came with hanging ribbon separate, as I have to take it off to paint. But, all in all, you can't beat the price, and it'll be fun to decorate them!
