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!

  • I thought it would be cute to get matching sunglasses & outfits to take a fun pic at this wall. I’ll blame the hot weather for this one. 😅 .
BUT, the truth is aren’t all the pics of our kids the best regardless if they’re looking at the camera, smiling or just being themselves? These are the real deal. Lexi running around not wanting to wear her sunglasses nor stand still. Mia not wanting to wear a dress & wanting to just climb things or take her own selfies with her iPod (aka phone). 🤣 Duh all kid things. Just a daily reminder to myself that I need to #letthembekids 🙈 .

  • Last Wednesday, I was invited to celebrate the launch of the new streamlined  @HonestBeauty products 
hosted by @jessicaalba at the Honest Headquarters. The event was nothing short of spectacular filled with delicious food, drinks and yummiest gluten-free vegan desserts from @yvonnesvegankitchen And, yes, Jessica Alba really is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. 😍 I asked her how she was able to balance family and business and guess what she said? She’s got the best help, her sis-in-law. 😘  She also mentioned that she created every single product for herself. How awesome is that? .

I was excited to try on some of the gorgeous  colors and new skin care products but most importantly to learn how gentle they are, how easy they are to put on & that they’re free of harmful additives. Find them all today @honest_beauty @Target @ultabeauty And check out my celebrity snap in my stories. ☺️ #CleanBeautyThatWorks #honestbeauty 📸 @lin_marty 💕

And speaking of family love, it melts my heart to see our oldest reading Fancy Nancy books 📚 to her little sis. So you can just imagine the reaction these two had when they found out they were invited to a Fancy Nancy tea party inside Walt Disney Studios. And even got to see the first episode! 😱Beyond ecstatic and grateful. Merci it was all Magnifique! Can’t wait for you all to see it. Catch the premier tomorrow at 11a on Disney Junior. And stick around to see our stories of the event throughout the day. 💕#DisneyFancyNancy #DisneyJunior

And more so with kids. 😆 Amiright? Lately we’ve been going on day dates. And although extremely grateful for it, I’m now having #momguilt because our oldest is questioning why she can’t come with us and that we don’t play with her like we use to. 😩 The struggle of finding balance is real. How do you find balance? I feel like I’m being pulled different directions and I know I’m not alone on this. #momlifeyo #teammarriage 📸💕 @lilyro_

I try my best to make sure I’m #raisinggoodhumans but also independent & brave ones. Zip lining, archery, rock climbing, mining, cycling and hanging out with Santa🎅🏼& Mrs Claus 🤶🏻. Just some of the things our 6-year-old experienced yesterday. And although she’s scared of heights, she rock climbed on an outdoor 30-foot wall! Cried a little & attempted to go higher every time. She got more than half way up which is huge in her eyes. On the way out she said it was actually fun and wants to go on again to go higher. Yes my love! You are amazing. 🙌🏼 .
