The cost of Christmas decorations can really add up. So, if you can DIY some of your decor, you can save a bundle (you probably need the cash for gifts, after all!). Here’s a fast and fun way to create your own oversized Christmas ornaments, courtesy of Home Stories A to Z.
First, here’s what you’ll need.
• Globe lights
• Cleaned tuna cans
• Screw eye hooks
• Drill and bits
• Silver leaf Rub ‘n Buff (or metallic spray paint)
• Stencils and paint (optional)
• LED battery-operated lights
Now that you have everything you need, let’s begin!
Use a solution of vinegar and rubbing alcohol to clean the globes and tuna cans. You’ll still have to deal with the tuna can label. Goo Gone or WD-40 will take them off.
Drill a hole in the center of each can. Screw in an eye hook.
Some Rub ‘n Buff will clean up that stamped info on the top.
Paint them with stencils and paint (optional!).
Pop in some battery-powered lights—and you’ve got yourself a festive oversized ornament for the cost of a can of tuna!
Since presentation is everything, you might display the ornaments in the center of a large wreath.
