How to create Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Decorations for Christmas

How I added TMNT Christmas decorations to our home

The year TMNTs were my son's favourite characters, I made various TMNT craft projects with Mikey, Raph, Donnie and Leo.  

I was more than pleased to see that B&Q sell green baubles.  I had crepe paper left over from my party projects, but I also bought some satin ribbon, which is harder to glue on baubles than crepe paper.

Many craft shops sell packs of wiggly eyes for £1 and they come in various sizes; put all these pieces together and you have yourself TMNTs hangings for the Christmas 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 for my son's birthday party.  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 turned on you can't see the colours of the masks with the crepe paper.   A sharp pencil will work to make a hole in the ball to sit over the tea light.

What you will need
* LED fairy lights 
* Ribbon
* Green ping pong balls
* Wiggly eyes
* Sharpie

So what do you think?  I love these, and may leave them up all year round.!
