How big are the Instax Mini Photos?
There are three sizes available with Fujifilm Instax photos.
Instax Wide is best for landscape photos. The photos are 3.4 inches tall and 4.25 inches wide. Instax Square films are the most standard polaroid size. They are 3.4 inches tall like the wide photos, but they are only 2.8 inches wide.
Most of the ornaments in this post, however, are compatible with Instax Mini photos. The Instax Mini photos are 3.4 inches tall, like the others, but they are only 2.1 inches wide. So they are slightly skinnier than the square films.
The mini photos are pretty popular, which is why a lot of the ornaments are designed for that size!
How To Decorate With Instax Frame Ornaments
Decorating your Christmas tree is always fun, but sometimes ornaments aren't as personal as you want them to be. These ornaments, however, provide a perfect way to personalize your tree with photos you love.
A lot of these ornaments are more neutral or use wood tones, which look really pretty on a Christmas tree! They also complement the other ornaments on your tree, since neutral tones look good with anything.
Use your Instax Mini photos to make a "memory tree" of all the fun times you've had this year. Your tree can be decorated with photos of your favorite family vacations, birthday festivities, or holiday memories.
If you're looking to personalize your tree, these Instax Christmas ornaments are perfect for you!
How to Gift Wrap With Instax Ornaments
If you're getting these ornaments for a friend who loves taking Instax photos, most of these ornaments are a nice rectangle shape so you can easily wrap them.
Some have an area for the string that juts out from the top, so you may need to bubble wrap those or put them in a box to make them in an easily-wrappable shape.
Another cute idea is to use this ornament as a gift tag! If you're buying another gift for a friend, get an ornament, fill it with a picture of the two of you, and tie it onto a pretty bow around your gift. You can even tie it around the handles of a gift bag.
Using an ornament with a photo inside is an adorable way to step up your gift wrapping game and give them a bonus gift at the same time!

One last option is to make your own DIY Instax Christmas ornaments!
Just use any washi tape to make a border and punch a hole at the top. Thread some string through the hole and tie the ends of the string together to make a closed-loop.
If you don't want to punch a hole in your picture, just get a little creative! you can tape it to construction paper and just hole punch the backing paper. Or you use a small, pretty paperclip to attach a string to the photo.
Whether you choose to make an Instax Christmas ornament yourself or you buy one of these ornaments, turning Instax or polaroid photos into Christmas ornaments is a really fun and festive way to display family photos.
