Bottle Cap Snowman Ornament

We made these once with ribbon and it didn’t look right, the bottle caps would not stay in place. Pipe cleaners solved these little snowmen’s problems.

Bottle Cap Snowman Ornament

Here what we used:
Bottle caps
Acrylic paint
Spray paint
Pipe cleaners
Hot glue
Glue gun

Spray paint the outside of the bottle caplets unless you want to see the logo.

Paint the inside with acrylic paint ( it will stay better then the spray paint.

Once dry, use a marker to make the face and bottons.

Fold a pipe cleaner in half and hot glue the bottle caps into place.

We also cut a pipe cleaners into thirds and made scarfs.

Flying Rudolph Handprints

These are a little silly looking, but I love a to try a new handprint craft each holiday. What do you think? Would you try?


Here is what we used:
Googly eyes

Paint both hands and try to position right. This is not easy with little ones, lol. That why my deer are flying 😉

Add the eye, then use marker to add extra details.

I saw this a few times on daycare craft websites.

Peppermint Ornaments

My own kids had a blast making these ornaments, and taste testing these of course. They did all the unwrapping on these. Then watched with pure excitement while they baked.


Here is what we used:
Cookie Cutters

Baking Sheet
Cooking Spray
Aluminum Foil


We lined the cookie sheet, placed the cookie cutters on top and sprayed cooking spray.

We placed the mints in, if the didn’t fit we placed a few on top of each other. For the snowflakes we placed the mint standing on its side and it melted down just fine.

We bake them for about 7 mins at 350. Just watch tell they are almost flat.

Cooled on the counter. I used a toothpick to make on small hole on top so we can hang on our tree.

Once cool modge podge or they will be sticking!

Silent Night Christmas Ornaments

Well only 2 more days of daycare tell the new year. Here is one more ornament idea♡

Silent Night Christmas Ornaments

Here what we used:
Craft wood circles (we got at Walmart I think it was a dollar for six)
Gold paint (also bought at Walmart for $1.50)
Hot glue

We took pictures with a santa hat. Then I emailed them to myself and made 3 inch circles with the faces and added the words silent night.

We painted the circles gold, then modge podged on the photos. I also sprinkled a tiny bit of gittler on before they dried.

On the back I hot glued on the twine so they could be hung on the tree.
