From an Instagram tree to photo ornaments, crafting with pictures is a great way to relive and share your favorite captured memories and spread cheer around the home. Photos underscore the most important part of the holidays: surrounding yourself with friends and family.
What’s unique about these DIY holiday gifts and crafts is they are social-media driven and bring social feeds to life in holiday crafts. Using the Canon PIXMA printer, you can print directly from Instagram using Wi-Fi and the Canon PRINT app. Once you’ve printed your pictures, you can use them to make custom handmade gifts and décor.

Instagram Photo Ornament
Turn your Instagram photos into festive ornaments for family and friends!
Step 1: Print photo of choice directly from Instagram using the Canon PIXMA MG7720 printer and cut it out using patterned edge scissors.
Step 2: Sprinkle glitter inside the ornament. It will naturally stick a little to the sides, but will move around if shaken.
Step 3: Roll the photograph and carefully insert it through the top of the ornament. Use a brush or pencil to open up the photograph once inside the ornament.
Step 4: Re-attach the top of the ornament and tie on a ribbon for hanging.
