Silver and Gold Juice Lid Ornaments

Recycled Christmas Craft- make ornaments from juice lids, paper, and spray paint: Grow Creative

We sold our house and closed on it yesterday!  The weight on my shoulders feels about 20 lbs lighter!

So now I have more free time for Christmas Crafty Adventures. I can't decorate as much as I normally would- living in my in-law's basement has it's limitations- but I've come up with some easy and economical Christmas Ornaments made from juice lids!

Materials:
Metal Lids from Cans of Frozen Juice Concentrate- washed and dried
Paper cut-outs or stickers in shapes of choice
Glue Stick
Gold Spray Paint- I used Krylon Brilliant Gold Indoor Paint
Small Nail
Hammer
String

Step 1:  Using a glue stick, glue paper shapes to the top of the juice lids or put stickers on if you have stickers.

Step 2:  Hammer a small nail through the top of the lid to create a hole to thread string through for hanging.

Step 3:  Spray paint one side of the lids and let dry.

Step 4:  Peel off the paper or stickers.  If you have any residue left, lightly wash it off by rubbing it with your fingers under warm water.

Step 5:  Cut small pieces of string and thread through the holes created with the nail.  Tie string together and hang on a tree!
