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!

  • 🥗Ok, you guys asked for it and I’m delivering! Fresh off the hand mixer and mixing bowl. Our homemade Orange Poppy Seed Dressing recipe. This is what really gets my kids to eat the kale. That and also because as mentioned, we use dinosaur kale 🦖 😆 Best of all? This salad dressing is the easiest to whip up and I bet you already have most of the ingredients needed in your kitchen pantry. Once you realize how easy it is to make vs buy, I’m hoping you’ll switch to the dark side. I love being able to modify the sugar intake. 😆😉 Ingredients 
1/4 c freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbs honey
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1/3 c yogurt of choice - my kids love Simple Truth organic vanilla bean Greek yogurt 
1/4 EVO or avocado oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs poppy seeds

  • When you hear the word summer, what comes to mind? .

I think about warm weather, the beach, pool time, eating outdoors and drinking a delicious glass of rosé. 😋 And if you’ve been following me for awhile you know I love me some good wine and I’m a huge fan of @garyvee So when I heard Gary launched @empathywines I couldn’t wait to try the rosé. And not just saying it because I’m a fan of his but seriously so so good! Go to my stories to check it out. #empathywines

  • This week, I made a promise to myself only this time, I’m choosing not to break it! 
As moms, we always put our kids, significant others, family, friends, work, etc. before us. Amiright? 🙋‍♀️ How many times have you committed and always made the extra effort to show up? Yet when we make a promise to ourselves we give up. That goes for everything not just that “workout” time. I’m talking about your dreams, your goals, aspirations whether it be in life, health, love, mental state whatever it is. Ladies, remember to be good to yourselves too. Don’t be that flaky friend that always leaves you hanging. And don’t get me wrong, I’m learning that keeping my promises I make to myself are possibly the hardest things to show up for. The mind is sooo powerful and loads my head with excuses and mom guilt. But I’m not giving up on myself and I hope you don’t either. We got this! 🙌 Shout out to @msrachelhollis for writing a book that helped me realize this! #motivation💪
  • What's your favorite summer salad to whip up at home?🥗 ¿Cuál es tu ensalada favorita para preparar en casa durante el verano?.

This Orange Poppy Seed Kale Salad is our fav. How do I get my kids to eat it? We use dinosaur kale because its bumpy leaves resembles what dinosaur skin looked like and my girls love dinosaurs. 🦖 😆 Also, I make this super easy salad dressing using ingredients we already have. Homemade salad dressing is way better than store bought as you control what actually goes into it. Total win-win.

  • How was your Mother’s Day weekend? 💐

I was so excited to go back to a restaurant my husband and I found back when I was pregnant with Lexi. We had gone on a date night and loved that it gave a historic vibe and that it was all outdoor dining. Surrounded by gorgeous flowers and their outdoor furniture was on point. We kept talking about this place for 3 years (I know, crazy!) but just never actually made the effort to go back. So on Saturday we made the effort. And guess what? .
.
Turns out the family owned business was forced to shut down a year ago to make way for apartments. It was heartbreaking to hear. But then my 7 yr old said “mami, it doesn’t matter where we eat as long as we’re together.” Geez! Who is this kid? 😆 She was so right. So we ate somewhere else which had outdoor seating and then it started pouring rain. We rushed inside the restaurant.🤣 Did you catch my stories? After the storm passed, a beautiful rainbow 🌈 showed up. 😊#familytime #myhappyplace #creatingmemories #misamores
