Picture Ornament Frames


I’ve got a little fun ornament project for you! This one requires basic crochet skills, and it’s a quick project.

Picture Ornament Frames


Materials needed:
- A worsted kitchen cotton yarn (I used Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream in Hot Green, Robin’s Egg, and Tangerine)
- Hook: E/4 (3.5 mm)
- 3 inch rings (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
- a yarn needle
- Circle nesting dies (Mine are from Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles Die Set)
- Big Shot or Cuttlebug, or any die cutting machine
- Adhesive backed foam sheets (I got mine at Michaels; you can easily use regular foam sheets and just tape/glue your pictures onto the foam instead)
- Adhesive backed magnets (I got mine at Walmart)


Crochet Pattern:
(adapted from “Pretty as a Picture” Frames pattern)

  1. Now THAT’s my kind of project. Simple, simple, simple!!! Beautiful children too Ruth. Little angels from God. I wonder how those frames would look done with sparkle yarn?

    Merry Christmas,


  2. Hi Ruth!

    You know a lot about dies, right? My husband just recently bought me a Cuttlebug Embossing and Die cutter(the green one), and I can’t seem to find any dies for the thing! Are there dies from other die cutters that I may use in my Cuttlebug? Thanks in advance, and have a very Merry Christmas! All of your subscribers and friends are praying for you all the time. We love you!

    Peace and Love,
