DIY Stained Glass Effect Plastic Lid Christmas Ornaments
The fascination with Homemade Christmas Decorations continues. Well what is there not to love about creating some fabulous Christmas Crafts with the kids, that can also decorate your home. Today’s handmade ornament is a RECYCLED Ornament too: we are making DIY Stained Glass Effect Plastic Lid Christmas Ornaments. Phew. That was a mouth full.. in short: have some pringles… then make a Pringle Lid Ornament! Don’t have pringles (don’t blame you!), pop over to Crafts on Sea , who makes very similar sun catchers out other types of lids. Plenty of inspiration for you there!
DIY Plastic Lid Christmas Ornaments – Materials
- Plastic lids – any will do – but we used Pringle Lids
- Sharpies (fine point ones are the best – stock up on some here US/ UK)
- Needle & Thread for hanging
- …or blu tak for sticking on windows
Upcycled Pringle Lid Ornament for Christmas
And yes they really are quite easy!
I usually start with one the just below the centre “black curve”.
Then add my main motif (e.g. the Christmas Tree, Heart or Star).
And carry on doodling from there.
Make a mistake? Don’t worry, draw over it with another sharpie and it will usually disolve…
For that reason add some of your detailed BLACK lines only at the end to make things pop!
Then take a needle and thread and make a small hole for hanging.
I love how when the light shines on these Stained Glass Effect Ornaments, they throw a colourful shadow onto the wall behind.
These Recycled Pringle Lid Christmas Ornaments would look great stuck to a window too!
