9 diy Christmas ornaments from the kitchen
1. Aluminum Foil
Roll and squeeze an 8-inch piece aluminum foil into a thin rope. Shape into a candy cane and tie a ribbon around it.
2. Paper Towel
Cut 1 piece paper towel into thin strips. Gather the strips together in a neat pile on a flat surface, then tie the center together with string; fluff and trim as needed. Just make sure it does not touch any Christmas lights when hanging.
Skewer a few pieces of candy onto 1 toothpick -- I used green Dots to make an abstract Christmas tree ornament. Tie with metallic string to hang.
4. Colorful Cupcake Liners
Flatten 1 colorful cupcake liner with your hands or press under heavy cookbooks. Punch a hole in the liner using a toothpick or skewer; thread a ribbon through and tie in a loop to hang.
5. Tea Bags
Unwrap 1 tea bag. Tie a ribbon around the string to decorate, then tie to the tree to hang. Bonus: It smells amazing!
6. Kitchen Twine
Wrap kitchen twine around your hand to make a wreath (the more you wrap, the thicker your wreath will be). Tie ribbon around the cut ends to secure, then hang on the tree.
7. Aluminum Cupcake Liners
Fold 1 aluminum cupcake liner into eighths. Snip the folded edges in a few places with scissors, then unfold and tie string through a hole to hang.
8. Tea Strainer
Fill 1 tea strainer with large dragées or sprinkles, if desired. Tie ribbon around the chain to decorate, then hang on the tree.
9. BUTTER KNIFE
Tie ribbon around your prettiest flatware (something small, like 1 butter knife, works best) to secure, then hang on the tree.
