**BEFORE you begin making these ornaments, you need to find the photo's of your loved ones, now take a shower hook hanger and place on your photo, find the right image in center of hanger, and circle it on outter edge of shower hanger. cut out

2.) 1 dc in each st around, join
3.) 2 dc, ch 2, sk next st, *2 dc, ch 2 *repeat around, join, ch 12 (hanger), join to same st as last dc, fasten off and tuck in tail
4.) plug in hot glue gun, while it's geting hot, tie 2 pieces of ribbon into bows, take some tiny beads
5.) glue photo to back of ornament, making sure photo is facing front. Now glue ribbons in place (on front) and place beads where you want them and glue into place.
I have one made of each of the members of our family hanging up. It's time to make new ones because several of our Granddaughters are teenages now.
It's wonderful having them hanging on our tree each year, or around on garland, with some of our family Celebrating Christmas with Jesus now we see their faces and smile knowing they are here enjoying our Christmas with us as well.
