Disney DIY Ornaments – Under $2

Disney DIY Ornaments Under $2

It’s no surprise we’re a tad obsessed with all things Disney over here. So naturally, we had to decorate our 15 foot Christmas tree with lots of Disney ornaments. Yes, we have a faux 15′ Christmas tree sitting in our main living room. I know, 15 feet might be a tad much for some but I’ve always envisioned owning a tall Disneyland looking Christmas tree with all the pretty decorations. So when we were shopping for our new home, high ceilings was a must on my wishlist. And that was mainly so that I could fit a tall tree in it. Totally crazy, right? And after living in our home for over five years now, my wish finally came true.

Our gorgeous Martha Stewart Living Christmas tree fits perfect in our home except that the corner where I wanted to place it is actually less than 15′. Hence why it’s still missing about 3′ and our tree topper. And although we bought this ‘beast’ on Cyber Monday the price was still a little steep. I’m still justifying it by telling my husband it will last for years and years to come, right? But you can just imagine how many ornaments this lovely tree can actually hold. So to not put another dent in our pocketbook, we decided to make our own Disney ornaments using figurines we already had laying around.

This is by far my favorite diy and I owe this idea all to my mamá. She is a genius! We all know how expensive Disney ornaments can be, right? Well, here’s an alternative to those pricey ornaments and they’re so easy to make.

Side note: Perfect way to get rid of some of the toys before the new ones make their way in. So here’s how we created them.

 

Items you’ll need

  • Lightweight Disney Figurines (We usually find play sets on sale at the Disney Store 2 sets for $10/ea)
  • Electric Drill
  • Ornament Hook
  • Screw Eye Hooks

Directions:

Drill a hole onto the top of each Disney figurine. Insert hook and twist clockwise making sure it’s placed all the way through. Add an ornament hook and hang. That’s it! The easiest, cutest and cost-effective ornament ever!

  • Apparently even FALL decided to go on a last minute vacay. 😆🍁🏖 Don’t blame it one bit. Just wish I could be back at the Disneyland Hotel poolside with this never ending 90 degree weather. 😬🔥 .

  • Ahhh! - We’re finally done with our kitchen renovation! 🎉 Obsessed with how it turned out & can’t wait to share it with you. But before I do, I wanted to also keep it real. .
.
The behind the scenes were cray w/ kids and no kitchen. Making meals, healthy at that, was such a challenge. I made this quick breakfast all the time in my office while there was construction going on. 🤪
.
.
Only 4 Ingredients Needed: 🎃 @go_raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sliced 🍌Banana, 🍓berries & chia seeds
.
.
Pumpkin seeds are a tasty alternative to nuts because they’re a good source of PROTEIN, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Did you know sprouted seeds optimize available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making it easier to digest and allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body? 🙌 Junk-free snacks that taste good.😋

Stay tuned for our kitchen Reno blog post and all our NEW quick healthy eat recipes!! If you’re always on-the-go, these are for YOU! 👌💃 #quickhealthyeats #breakfast

  • #AD | As a mom, I tend to put myself last, more so when it comes to annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse's’ employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine. .
.
But guess what? I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. So glad I did as it turns out I have pretty bad eye allergies and I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that I had no idea were connected to my vision. Those annual eye exams are a must. Be sure to schedule yours in mama! And if you don’t have vision care, open enrollment season is happening right now. Find out all the info on our latest blog post. #SeeMuchMore #weseeyoumom @VSPVisionCare
  • Mia, our oldest said to me last night, "Mommy when Lexi was in your tummy I prayed a lot of times at night that I'd get a sister. And I got a sister! I love my little sister." And then a few minutes later was arguing with little sister over a toy. 🤪 .
.
Sibling love is the best kinda love, right? They love each other so much, look after one another yet also fight. But they instantly forgive one another. 👭#KidsTeachParentsToo .
