How to create Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Decorations for Christmas

How better to end the year than with creating TMNT Christmas Decorations?

How I added TMNT Christmas decorations to our home

The year TMNTs were my son's favourite characters, I made various craft projects with Mikey, Raph, Donnie and Leo  but my son is starting to favour paw patrol so I'm sad in thinking that these turtles may be getting a back seat now so this may be the last of the posts on how I used the TMNTs in craft projects.

The TMNT Christmas baubles have been doing the rounds on my Facebook feed for a while now, and I was more than pleased to see that B&Q were selling green baubles.  I had crepe paper left over from my party project, but I also bought satin ribbon - which is actually harder to glue on baubles than crepe paper but it does look nicer.  Finally, The Works sell packs of wiggly eyes for £1 that come in 3 sizes; put all these pieces together and you have yourself TMNTs hanging from the tree.

What you will need:
* Glue Gun / Glue
* Green Baubles
* Crepe Paper / Ribbon / Felt
* Wiggly Eyes

You only need 4 items to create TMNT Christmas baubles

How we created TMNT baubles with ribbon and crepe paper





We also had some green ping pong balls which I bought (again) for the party back in October but never used them, and after making the Halloween Ghosts - I thought the TMNT LED lights would make a fabulous addition to our Christmas theme this year.... and I love these!


The process is the same as the baubles with a few additions, firstly, the ribbon works much better than the crepe paper; when the lights are on you can't really see the colours of the masks with the crepe paper.  A sharp knife cutter is needed to pierce a hole in the balls and a sharpie for giving the turtles a cheeky grin!

What you will need
* LED fairy lights (I had a packet of 20)
* Ribbon
* Green ping pong balls
* Wiggly eyes
* Sharpie







So what do you think?  I do love these, and may leave them up all year round... or until Chase finally becomes the favourite over Leo.
