Christmas Ornament Earrings

What you’ll need:

Small 1 inch ornaments. I found a pack of them for only $1 at the Target Dollar spot!

Earring Hooks ~ Really you could use any type including ones from an old pair of earrings. I like the kidney loops because they are easy to slip the ornaments and off of.

 Simply slip the ornaments onto the earring hooks.

Spray paint Legos gold to make a Lego Christmas Tree Ornament

This Lego Tree Ornament is easy to make.  This post actually answers my question of how to make Legos any color you want! I spray painted these Legos and they turned out perfectly. Have you ever spray painted Legos? Below you’ll find how to spray paint any Legos.

This ornament is inspired by our most recent trip to Legoland where they are all decked out for the holidays.

Gold Spray Painted Lego Christmas Tree Ornament

 What you’ll need:

  • Legos
  • 1 plastic ball ornament
  • Tinsel or cotton balls/pom poms for snow
  • Gold Spray Paint

Spray paint Legos gold, super easy!

How to spray paint Legos:

  • Wipe the Legos so they are free from dirt.
  • Spray each of the Legos until they are coated in spray paint. I used this one
    and I did not need a primer. However, if you aren’t sure if your spray paint can coat Legos I would use a primer.
  • Once dried, assemble your Lego Christmas Tree
  • Place the tinsel or other “snow” in your ornament with the Lego Christmas Tree.

 This is a fun craft for kids to do, you don’t even need to paint the Legos if you want them to be colorful!

This easy tutorial shows you how you can upcycle food Containers into gift boxes!

How to upcycle canisters into gift boxes for treats!

During the holiday season I find myself looking for new creative ways to gift the goodies that we bake for others for gifts. In the past I have used baggies and food containers.  Since I found a recent splurge on items that were in food containers, I decided to upcycle them into goodie containers.

These containers can be used for goodies like this Almond Roca Fudge or this Peppermint Bark. These cans are very easy to make with minimal effort!

DIY Gold Pumpkin Candy Jar  Have one of those foam pumpkins lying around? Transform it into a candy dish! The styrofoam is tricky to cut through, just make sure you have a sturdy x-acto knife.

What you’ll need:

DIY Gold Pumpkin Candy Jar

How To:

  • Spray paint the pumpkin in gold.
  • Once dry, cute a hole big enough for the jar. I would take a pencil and outline it on the top.
  • Place the jar in the hole and fill with candy. It really is that easy, the most time consuming part is the cutting of the hole at the top.
