Day 8 actually…whoops. Recycled plastic lid ornament
You know all those food products we buy like yogurt, whipped cream, and butter, well they have the perfect craft supply on them…their lids. If you don’t feel like going out and spending money on card stock to make things with then recycled plastic from things you have in your kitchen is a great substitute.
For this whimsical little fox ornament you will need;
Clean plastic container lid
Accessories like buttons, beads and ribbons
Permanent marker or pen to trace with
First draw out a fox shape. There are tons of different styles online if you don’t want to try freehand. You can copy this one I found, which is pretty simple. The face is a heart shape and the belly is an oval. You might recognize it from an old baby post of mine, I really like the design.
Once you have your templates done, trace onto lid.
Now cut out but don’t use the good scissors. You know the ones you have hidden from the family because you need then sharp for fabric projects.
I saved the face and belly templates for fabric scraps to glue onto the base of the body.
After you have your pieces all cut out then start decorating your foxes. Using beads for eyes and mini pom poms for noses.
Then use a needle and thread to tie a string to hang on your trees.
I had extra plastic from the lid left so I made some hearts and a tail for the fox.
Happy recycling everyone and happy holidays too. Remember what Christmas is all about, please try not to over do it and stress. Spend time with your love ones and be thankful for everyday.
