A bit of background.  I'm a biology Masters student, and my thesis involves plant/insect interactions (not ants, specifically, but I thought they were cute and allowed for creative manipulation!).  So, I got the idea to make some ornaments with that theme both for me and my nearest and dearest.

So, I cruised the aisles of Michael's craft store, found some blank ornaments that needed decorating, and found stickers that were appropriate to my goals in the scrapbooking section.

I'm going to seal them with glittery Mod Podge, so that will make them even better but it might take me a minute to do that step...

I love your idea to create ornaments that represent your passion as a grad student to share with your loved ones.  They turned out very cute, I especially like the star and tree with just ants (although I know the plant part is key to your thesis).  I remember getting blank stares from people when I would talk about my masters thesis and research, this is a nice way to bring it down to earth and get others into it, too.
