Christmas time is expensive. Between buying gifts, hosting parties, and traveling to see family, you are probably spending a solid amount of cash. Why waste extra money on expensive decorations? Cheap plastic ornaments can be made into an adorable wreath that will look WAY more expensive than it actually is! Here is an easy tutorial for this cute DIY.

What you will need:

  • Foam wreath
  • Hot glue gun
  • Plastic ornaments
  • Ribbon343b198ddab9ef2cf1c81f5b965daae3

Lay out the foam wreath. Next, put some hot glue on an ornament and place it on the wreath. Do this with the rest of the ornaments, and mix up small and large ornaments of different shades of the same color. Glue the ornaments to both the wreath and to each other. That will keep them from coming loose and falling off. Tie some ribbon in a bow at the top of the wreath to allow it to hang from a hook.

That’s it! How easy was that? Now you have a wreath that looks like it is store bought! Your friends will totally love it.

XOXO, Chels

Peppermints are as festive as it gets. No matter what time of year it is, the smell of peppermints never gets old. It is so refreshing! The ornaments I am going to teach you how to make are totally festive, totally adorable, and totally perfect for any Christmas tree! And, not to mention, totally cheap!

What you need:

  • Peppermint candiesimg_8938
  • Metal cookie cutters
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Parchment paper

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and then spray the inside of your cookie cutters with cooking spray. Lay the cookie cutters on the cookie sheet and fill them with peppermint candies. Squeeze as many peppermints side by side into the cookie cutters. If you layer the candies on top of each other the ornaments will be thicker and stronger. Bake the sheets for 5 to 10 minutes and keep an eye on the candy as it melts. Remove the tray from the oven when the candies have melted together. Lightly coat a toothpick with cooking spray and use it to make a hole in each group of candies. Let the candy sit inside the cookie cutters until it hardens and cools. Once it has hardened, carefully stretch out the cookie cutter and gently pull the cookie cutter away and pop the candy out.

Now all you have to do is string some ribbon through the holed in ornaments and then decorate with them! They will fill your house with a fresh, peppermint scent and they will also add some color to your tree!

XOXO, Chels

Christmas is coming! Prepare yourself for all things red, green, and peppermint flavored. You also need to start thinking about what kind of decorations you are going to Christmas-ify your houses with! I have a super easy, super fun way to add your own touch of personality to your decorations this Christmas!

What you will need:

-Clear glass ball ornamentsChelsea crockett ornaments

– Black Sharpie markers

That’s all you will need! I got my glass ornaments at Walmart for 3$.  For this fun DIY you just draw patterns on the glass ornaments with the Sharpies in whatever way you want. I recommend cleaning the ornaments before you draw on them, because all of the dirt and oils that are on them can make the Sharpie not want to stick to the ornament. Some examples of patterns that I drew are below! I went with a tribal sort of theme, but you can do whatever you please! That is the cool thing about this craft, you can totally customize it and make it your own! You can hang these spunky ornaments on your tree, put them in a bowl as a center piece, or even use them to decorate your mantle! The possibilities are endless! And you are going to be SO proud when you get to tell people that you made them yourself!

Comment below and tell me what you would put on YOUR ornaments!

XOXO, Chels
