How do you put a photo on a shatter proof Christmas ornament?

make a color photo copy and cut to size. Make sure BEFORE you start using the mixture that it won't wrinkel up as it goes around the ball. Too large a photo won't work well.

Mix water and white gule like Elmers. Make the mix semi runny but not watery. Brush mixture on ball, place photo and brush over the photo. It will dry hard as a rock and shiny. You need to find something to dry the ball on like wax paper and something to keep it from rolling. Otherwise you will have a pretty glued mess stuck to your table!

Hope that helps

If it's going onto a "Ball" shaped ornament: AFTER you make a copy of your photo & cut it out, you'll probably need to make snips into it from the outside edges into it about an inch, this way it will fit better & wont wrinkle... The easiest thing is to put your photo onto a cube or square, & not a ball (this way NO wrinkles)...Then use 1 part white glue mixed with 1 part water & a paintbrush, OR use decoupage medium or artists gel medium. (White glue/water is the "thriftiest")

you could also just roll the photo around a pencil and slide inside the clear bulb to show through very cute and easy.
