Make Durable Children's Artwork Christmas Ornaments

Preserving child artwork in ornament form can be tricky since paper easily crumples and wrinkles. Using shrink paper to make ornaments, though. Now that's a great idea! Let your kids go to town drawing and decorating and then shrink their creations down to small, durable, plastic ornaments perfect for hanging on the tree or giving as gifts to loved ones.


  • Shrink Film (think DIY Shrinky Dinks)
  • Permanent markers
  • Hole punch
  • Thin ribbon
  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Oven
