12 days of Christmas crafts…day 5.

DIY Tp posetta ornaments


Supplies needed:

Red paint


Tacky glue


Empty paper roll tube



So simple, just cut a paper tube into strips.


Then paint the strips red and let dry.



Glue petals together into a flower shape. You can do 5 or 6 petals, either way you will still get a flower form.


Trace circles using small bottle tops. Then cut out. These will be glued onto your flowers for their centers.After the centers have dried add some string and hang up your flowers.


This is kid friendly and so easy. A fun way to decorate your trees on a budget. Saw this project on YouTube but once again I can’t remember the link back.I always like to give credit to the person who started it all or at least inspired me to create something. Like a chain of creativity from one person to the next. So sorry I don’t know where this originally came from. I have my own designs I come up with now and then that I love sharing with everyone, Some of those designs and patterns of mine I am trying to turn into kits. But this month I am taking a break from all of that. This month is about giving to others and sharing love and kindness to the world, trying to make happy memories with friends and family. Tp crafts were always very popular when my children were little. We also did a lot of egg carton crafts too. There was never a shortage of those art supplies in our home.

    1. I know what you mean. I have empty Christmas paper tubes. My husband and I used those to make crackers with for some friends of his that are British. We filled them with little chocolates and peppermint, prizes and ornaments. It was fun making them up. They are all adults of course but we still need to treat the child in us all now and then. I kept calling them poppers and my husband kept laughing and saying they are called crackers. I just said I will never remember that because I think of crackers for cheese only.

    1. Thank you. It was a little bit of a challenge this year because I had a lot of outside projects in my life to finish but I was still able to come up with my traditional 12 days of crafts for everyone. I forgot to write to you about a streaming channel my daughter bought for me as an early Christmas gift. It’s called UP family and they have a bunch of family friendly shows on it. I am watching the Bates series at the moment. That is when ever I have time. I have a baby Yoda to make and a whole alphabet of soft pillows to make for our neighbors who ordered them. This Christmas we have a lot of hand made gifts to make it seems. Oh, and thank you for the link and mention. Today I am trying to catch up on blogging friends and their sites, so I will be stopping by your place for a visit soon.

      1. That baby Yoda craze is nuts isn’t it? I had to get my son a Baby Yoda t-shirt because he is a huge Star Wars and Mandalorian fan. I have heard of that channel. I’m going to check it out! Thanks!

      2. I haven’t gotten to watch any movies yet just the Bates and what they have been up to. The father and mother are around my age but Gil bates reminds me so much of my father, even the way he speaks. So funny because my dad was from Arizona but once his Twin moved to Arkansas decades earlier my dad started talking like his twin…so weird. Then we started picking things up. I went to school for awhile in Texas when I was six and we lived there for awhile but I am an Arizona girl, this is where I was born and where I have spent most of my years but even I catch myself saying “You all” sometimes.
