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!

This is hands down such a life-saver for us busy moms that are looking for healthier delicious options without leaving the comfort of our homes and having to pack the kids up just to grab a quick bite to eat. #sponsored #mypanera #PaneraDelivers #panera #momsonthego #busymom
  • 🍭Oh Lexi, you’re so full of sweetness and sass. Wondering if it’s true what they say...The youngest will surely give you more gray hairs. 🤣🙈 .

And if you have a winter baby, I’ve got a cute birthday idea for you on our blog. Check out how we celebrated Lexi’s 2nd bday. Link in bio. ❄️🎂 📸 @lilyro_ 😍 #terrifictwos #winter #birthdaygirl

Someone recently asked me how on Earth I go  to places like the zoo or Disneyland with these two alone. The truth is, it’s not easy. Yes, sometimes my husband or my mom come along but they’re not always able to. So what’s my secret? .
.
I pushed myself to do it once. I thought, if it’s a total fail oh well, at least I gave it a shot. And well, I’m here to report, I survived, they survived and we have tons of good memories (I don’t think they’ll remember the tantrums🤪) to look back at from it. *Tip: Buy a Zoo membership or theme park annual pass or Groupon. Go early in the am when there’s less crowds. Stay for a few hours and leave before it gets too crowded. And bring lots of snacks. 🤣You got this mama!! 💪☺️ #sandiegozoo #twinningtuesday #momofgirls #motheroverloadhair
  • Most of you know my oldest is severely allergic to eggs. For that reason, date nights with the Mr. tend to turn into brunch dates. Which is why we were so excited to get invited to the opening of @toasttemecula 😋

Loving all their delicious menu options from chilaquiles verdes & micheladas, adorable pancakes w/ berries & kiwi for the kiddos to healthier colorful options like their avocado toast w/ egg🥑 and vanilla ice ice charcoal matcha. 🍵 Oh and did I mention they even have gluten-free options and play 90s music? 📻 🙌🏼😍

That mom guilt is real yo! Some days are harder than others, right? But we got this mamas. 💪 Trying my best to carve out quality time with my girls and really being present. It’s my goal moving forward not just this new year but FOREVER. Joting down girl dates, hubby dates and family dates on my calendar and making them a top priority. And that includes putting the phone down. 😜

Throwing it back to a couple months ago when I went solo for the first time with these two little loves 🤪...This pouty face happened when a cast member volunteered to take the pic for me & Pluto graciously photo bombed it. 😂Oh Hi Pluto!👋
