Make Weebles Using Recycyled Eggs-Artzy Creations

It seems like every year at Easter we keep accumulating more and more plastic Easter eggs.  I’m always trying to brainstorm what to do with the plastic eggs so they don’t end up in the garbage.  This year I came up with these cute Bunny and Chick Weebles that literally take five minutes to make.  My daughter just thought they were the cutest and couldn’t stop playing with them.  Let’s see just how quick and easy these fun Weebles are.

Supplies Needed:

  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Play Dough or Salt Dough
  • Sharpie Markers

Step 1:  Gather up all of those plastic Easter eggs.

Step 2:  Put a little wad of Play Dough in the bottom of the egg.  Close up the egg.  If you are worried about your toddler opening up the Easter egg, you can put a little Super Glue around the edges.

Step 3:  Draw a little bunny face or chick face on the eggs with Sharpie markers.

If you find that your Play Dough isn’t sticking to the bottom inside of the egg, just open it open and give the Play Dough a firm push back down into the bottom of the egg.  Also,  if you find that your Play Dough dries up (which we have) just put a new piece into the egg.  If you don’t have any more Play Dough, use a hot glue gun and glue the dried up piece into the bottom.

My daughter absolutely LOVED this project.  She had so much fun playing with these when we had finished making them.  Plus, they’re are so many possibilities of different animals or funny faces that you could make.

Snowman Shadow Box Ornament For Winter

Snowman-Shadow-Ornament-Artzy-Creations-4a-1This post was originally for Darice. I love taking objects and re-purposing them to create an entirely different object.  For this cute snowman ornament craft, I took a paper mache lid from a hexagon box to create the shadow box effect.  Simply add a few small embellishments and you will have yourself a very cute and original ornament. You can display this cute craft throughout the winter season. Let’s get started and see how easy it is to create your own shadowbox snowman ornament craft.

Shadowbox Snowman Ornament Craft Supplies:


Step 1. To begin this snowman ornament craft, paint the outside and the inside of the box a solid color.  Coordinate the paint color with the piece of scrapbook paper that you will insert into the hexagon paper mache lid.

Step 2. Cut the piece of scrapbook paper to fit inside of the hexagon shape.  Adhere the paper using double sided tape.


Step 3. Cover the outside of the snowman ornament craft with coordinating Washi tape.


Step 4.  Hot glue additional embellishments into the shadow box. You can cut a shape out of scrapbook paper to layer on top of the background or a printed tag would also work well. Hot glue the pom pom trim around the edge of the hexagon shape too.  Hot glue a ribbon to the top as well to finish off your snowman ornament craft.



There you have it!  A cute and adorable snowman ornament craft that you can customize using so many different things.  Not too mention, this would also make a cute present topper for that special someone.



Free Christmas Ornament Coloring Page

Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations

  Lately, I’ve really gotten into creating coloring pages.  I’ve been an art teacher now for over eighteen years and have always loved drawing.  Both of my daughters have a great love for drawing too.  Sometimes, when I couldn’t find just the right coloring pages for the girls, I would create my own for them.  So, this Free Christmas Ornament Coloring Page was actually a special request by my oldest daughter who wanted some pretty ornaments to color in. Now, I’m sharing it with all of you!  If you haven’t tried coloring a coloring page in awhile, (which I admit, I hadn’t done in a long time before I started creating these), you’re in for a real treat.  Coloring pages are actually very relaxing and give your busy mind a chance to unwind just a little bit.  So, why not give it shot and see what you think!

 Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-01-Artzy Creations   This is a great coloring page to keep the kiddos occupied over the upcoming Holiday break.  Use crayons, colored pencils or markers… take your pick.  You and your kids will love it! Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-02-Artzy Creations


Don’t forget to print a page off for yourself and sit down with a nice cup of coffee or tea.  Or join your kids and make it a fun family activity where you all spend some time together, coloring.

Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornament

You will want to cover your entire Christmas Tree with these darling Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments!

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!Merry Christmas! We love visiting Artzy Creations and sharing what we have created with you and today is no exception! Hi! I’m Debbie with Made From Pinterest and today I’m sharing a cute ornament craft.

I love things that are big on easy but also big on impressive and festive at the same time. These Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments really fill that bill. Quick and easy to make and they look so festive on a Christmas tree. And just look how elegant the black and gold ornament is:

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!To make some of these for yourself, here is what you will need:

♥Long cinnamon sticks. I bought mine at Costco

♥An assortment of ribbon. It is easier if you choose ribbon that is the same on both sides but you can still make it work with a design on one side like the black and gold ribbon that is shown.


♥Glue gun and glue

♥Spray starch and an iron

♥Twine for the hanger loop

Start by cutting pieces of ribbon in lengths of 9-10 inches. You will need six for each ornament and a little extra for the ribbon at the top.

Tie 6 pieces of ribbon around your cinnamon stick:

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!

At this point, I lightly sprayed my ribbon with spray starch and with my iron set on low, I ironed my ribbon strips to help them be stiff and stand out nicely. If you have any kind of plastic or rubber embellishments on your ribbon, be very careful when ironing so they don’t melt.

Next, with your scissors, start from the end that you want the top and cut down towards the “bottom” of the tree at a diagonal making the ribbon longer at the bottom. This makes it so much easier than tying a tiny little piece of ribbon at the top. Repeat on the other side.

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!Cut out the desired length of twine for your hanger. Place a dollop of glue at the “top” of your tree and secure the ends of your twine to the cinnamon stick.

Tie a small bow with the desired color of ribbon and glue over the bottom of the twine pieces to cover.

Wait until glue is cool and dry before hanging on your tree.

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 3a

The Holidays are the perfect time to get everyone involved in making festive decorations for the house.  At our house during the holidays, we always have some sort of craft going on whether it be making popcorn garland, decorations for the window, or making more ornaments for the tree, there is always something.  And since my youngest daughter is still pretty young, I try to make the crafts doable for all ages.  These Paper Straw Snowflakes are a great craft for all ages.  What’s best about this craft too, is that is really inexpensive and only takes two straws per snowflake to make them.  Let’s get started and see just how easy these adorable snowflakes are to create.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations

Supplies Needed:

  • Variety of Paper Straws
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue or Low Temp Glue Gun For Kids
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Twine or Ribbon to Hang the Snowflake


Step 1:  Taking two straws, cut them both in half.  You will have four straw pieces.

Step 2:  Taking your scissors, cut the ends of the straw just a little bit.  Work your way around the tip of the straw, cutting a little section at a time.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 1a

Step 3: Make an X  with two straws and hot glue them in place.  Slightly squeeze the middle of the straw.  This will flatten the center of the straws a little bit so they will stack and glued easier.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 4

Step 4:  Hot glue another straw vertically down the center of the X that you just made.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 5

Wood Slice Turkeys For Kids

Wood Slice Turkeys for Kids-Artzy Creations 5

At our house, it’s typically a long day for the kids and they get a little restless waiting for the big Thanksgiving dinner.  Not this year… I’ve come up with a clever way to create a turkey  using just a few materials and some wood slices.  I love wood slices and how versatile they are for so many crafts.  Plus, they make the cutest darned turkeys.

This project is great because you can have the pieces pre cut and put in separate bags for the kids to complete on Thanksgiving day.  That really helps make this project extra simple, easy to distribute and manage on that busy day.


Wood Slice Turkeys for Kids-Artzy Creations

Supplies Needed:

  • Wood Slices
  • Red Felt
  • Orange Felt
  • Googly Eyes
  • Tacky Glue (It’s great for kids to use for this project.) or Hot Glue
  • Colored Ribbon


Step 1:  Cut several pieces of different colored ribbon to roughly 3″ in length.  Make a loop and place a dab of glue between the ends of the ribbon to glue them together.

Wood Slice Turkeys for Kids-Artzy Creations 1

Step 2:  Glue the loops of ribbon to the back of the turkey and space them out just a little bit in a fan pattern.

Step 3:  Next, you will create the legs of the turkey by taking two pieces of ribbon, roughly 1″ in lenght and glue these pieces to the back of the turkey.  If you’re using ribbon with a pattern (like mine) make sure the pattern is facing the front so you can see it.  You can angle the legs like I did or have them just go straight up and down.

Wood Slice Turkeys for Kids-Artzy Creations 2

Step 3:  Take a little piece of red felt and a cut a curved waddle shape.  Use a small piece of orange felt and cut a triangle for the beak.

Step 4:  Glue the waddle shape down first.  Followed by the beak.  Finally, glue the googly eyes on.

Wood Slice Turkeys for Kids-Artzy Creations 3

 Look at these cute turkeys.  They will be a kid crowd pleaser for sure.
