Mamma Chia Beverage Cap DIY Upcycle Ornament

Looking to brighten up your Christmas tree with some extra special messages of holiday cheer? Look no further, because Mamma Chia has you covered…with our caps! No pun intended, but we do intend to show you our quick and easy DIY method of crafting your favorite Mamma Chia under-the-cap messages of joy and gratitude into awesome little upcycled ornaments! Happy Holidays!

What you need:

  • Hot glue gun (Parental supervision advised!)
  • Any type of cording, ribbon, or string in any color (We purchased this one at Target HERE)
  • As many Chia beverage caps that you would like to make into ornaments (Pick your favorite quotes!)
  • Ruler (To measure the string)
  • Sharpie (Any color)

Instructions:

  1. Measure out the string to about 5.5 – 6 inches
  2. Mark a dot on the back of the cap on where you want the string to point up (This is just to make sure it is glued in the right spot and stays straight!)
  3. Tie the string together at both ends so that it makes a loop
  4. Make a small dot of hot glue and place the tied end on the glue
  5. Add another dot of glue on top of that to ensure the string is attached and let dry for a couple minutes
  6. Voila! Your new ornaments are done and are ready to be hung!

Garland has become something we can use all year round. From birthday banners to wedding flair, it’s a great way to add a creative element to your home and event decor!

For this DIY we are stringing together a winter tree garland that you can leave up the entire season.

White with gold accents create a neutral, yet inviting color scheme that will pair well with your existing holiday decorations. It’s all about creating pieces you can use and reuse, time and time again!

You will need:

White and Gold acrylic paint

Twine

Thick cardboard or craft wood (You can find this at most craft stores)

Gold Glitter

 

Step One: Cut your cardboard or craft wood into 10 trees. Here is a stencil you can print: Free Tree Stencil

Step Two: Cut a slit up the bottom of five trees and a slit down the top of five trees.

ForΒ the five trees that have the slit on the top,Β punch two holes, this is where you will feed in your twine later.

Step Three:Β Paint your trees white

Step Four: Let it dry

Step Five: Brush your gold paint across each tree in various spots, there’s no wrong way to do this, so have fun!

Step Six: Add glitter (we love lots of glitter!)

Step Seven: Feed your twine & hang it up!

The sugar should be wet but not soupy. If too much coconut oil is used, the mixture will solidify once the coconut oil returns to room temperature.
