Toss the tinsel and trim your tree with turtles. These four ninjas are ready to protect your tree, and only take a few minutes to make. This is an easy project to make and the results are super fun.
Here’s what you’ll need.
- Ribbon [red, orange, purple, and blue], on hand or $1 and up
- Green ball ornaments (or paint existing ornaments green), on hand or $1 and up
- Googly eyes, on hand or $1
Total: Free and up
If you don’t have green ball ornaments (or the right shade of green) then coat your ball ornaments with a coat of primer and a few coats of green spray paint, waiting between applications for the paint to dry.
Cut a length of ribbon longer than the diameter of your ornaments. Then, wrap the ornaments with the ribbon around the centre to make the Ninja Turtle mask. If your ribbon is thin you can wrap around the ornament twice to give the mask the right thickness. I used a dab of hot glue to secure the middle of the ribbon to the ornament, then wrapped the ribbon around the ornament twice, gluing to secure in place. The ribbon ends were then tied in a knot.
Repeat the process until all Turtle ornaments have masks.
Next, apply a small dab of hot glue to the back of googly-eyes and apply two to each turtle ornament directly on top of the mask. Repeat for each turtle.
That’s it, you’re all done! Time to hand these crime fighting friends on your tree and give your tree power; TURTLE POWER!
