Drink frozen orange juice? This craft is a great way to use those little metal lids off the juice cans! Have a lot of leftover Christmas cards? Use those too! These ornaments are an easy craft for kids. They make a great homemade gift for grandparents or to keep!
I've been making these since I was a kid with my Nana. I always loved making them. I think they would even work in a classroom setting.
DIY Christmas Ornament Craft
Just a few supplies is all it takes! A Christmas card or photo, juice lids, glue, ribbon, and glitter!
Find or make a template to fit the juice lid, trace, and then cut it out.
Glue a loop of ribbon onto the lid. After that's done, glue the circle cut-out onto the lid over the ribbon.
Finish around the edge with glitter glue or regular glue and glitter. If you want, you can take a Sharpie and write on the back to personalize it.
Most of my supplies I bought in the dollar section at Target so the cost comes to about $5. I didn't count the juice since I buy it anyway. Glamorous it ain't, but cute and simple it is! Plus you get to recycle by making something fun!
