The Simple Secret to something you have in your bathroom!

Happy Monday to all my crafty frans! Today I will be showing you how make glittery, swirly ornaments made with items you most likely have already in your home. Everyone is putting up their trees and even if you already purchased all of your tree decor this is still something you can add to it! What if you make a dozen DIY ornaments and give them to someone as a gift!

I promise you every year when they open that box they will always think of you, I think that is so special and sweet! Let’s face it, decorative ornaments can be pricey but if you make them you will be surprised how much money you can save!  Whattya say?!

Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs, today I will be showing you how to make your very own Ice Cream Cone Christmas Ornaments. I don’t know if you remember last year when I made my CupCake Ornaments but let me tell you they were such a hit! I wanted to do something different this year. I have so much fun making festive ornaments for my tree and I love that they are so easy anyone can do them. Sometimes I make things that I want to eat, literally! You know those things you create and you walk by them and always stop to admire them. Yeah, that is how I feel about these suckers. I won’t lie to you the products I used in this project were key. So don’t make them without the awesome glitter dimensional paint.

Worried Santa will fill your stocking with your brother’s stuff because you left your stockings nameless this year? Scared to walk into an ugly Christmas sweater party and see someone else wearing the same thrift store sweater? From personalized Christmas decor to sparkly ornaments and   ugly sweaters, avoid disaster and make this holiday season uniquely yours with Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint.

I have this old aluminum tree and I am thinking about making more and filling the tree with them. Wanna come to my house and help me make them??? Come on, it will be fun. We can sit at my table, drink coffee and make non edible ice cream cones. holiday diy ornamentsyou will need

*Tulip Dimensional Paint
*Glue Gun
*Scrapbook Paper
*Christmas Ornaments
*Lotsa Love ice cream cone ornament supplies

You can purchase all of the dimensional products I used in today’s post HERE.

Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is available at Walmart, Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, AC Moore, Amazon and most other major craft supply stores.

I literally keep this stuff stocked in my studio. You will be so surprised how much this stuff comes in handy for the most random projects. They have this new Confetti Glitter that is so beautiful. It looks matte when you first squeeze it out but when it dries it’s like a glittery heaven. GLITTER PAINT

Check out these amazing Christmas colors. Tulip has a great Christmas pack that is totally necessary in your life. glitter puff paintSTEP ONE – Get a sheet of scrapbook paper and lay it on a flat surface then fold it in half.

I wanted to do all black and white designs for my cones so my color would POP!
black and white patterns

This is what it should look like once you fold it in half. Easy right!

STEP TWO – Fold that half in another half. It will look like the size of a greeting card at this point. diy christmas ornamentsSTEP THREE – unfold your sheet and it will look like it has four squares. Now you can grab those handy dandy scissors and cut along all the lines.

You will have four squares ready to get folded into baby cones. christmas ornament tutorial

STEP FOUR – Cut out a circle in each small square. I free handed my circle because honestly in the end it will not matter if it’s perfect. However if you are a perfectionist you are more than welcome to place something down and trace a circle. The bigger the circle the bigger the cone.

These four small squares will give you smaller cones. If you want to do a bigger cone you can use one whole sheet of paper for one large cone.

Once you start making your circles you will get a feel for what size you prefer. I like to have a variety of small and large cones.

STEP FIVE – cut out a piece of pie from that circle. Again, it does not matter if it’s exactly perfect. how to make a cone

STEP SIX – Take one end of the pie and fold it over continuously folding into the cone shape. It’s almost like twisting the paper and after a few times you will understand what I mean. I will be honest and tell you it’s SUPER EASY, can we hug now? paper cones

Tadahhhhhh! We now have our very own paper cone. I seriously love this pattern!  Once you are done rolling the cone you can add a drop of hot glue to the end to secure the paper in place. diy paper cones

STEP SEVEN – Once your cone is all rolled up you will line the inside of the cone with hot glue. I will warn you to work a little fast at this point because you don’t want the glue to dry before you put the ornament inside. martha stewart hot glue gun

STEP EIGHT – Quickly place your ornament inside of the cone. Make sure to leave the part that you put the hanger in at the top. This is also where we will be putting out cherry! Wait, do ice cream cones have cherries on top? If not then mine do, hehe!cupcake ornaments

Once you are done making all of your ice cream cones we will add the dimensional paint to look like they are dripping off the ornament. Now I know most ice cream cones are not colorful but mine are and I like it that way. Just a tip, if you want you can use ornaments that reflect real flavors of ice cream.

How long does it take to dry? 
Depending on application thickness, Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint has a dry time from 2-8 hours. I recommend letting your project dry overnight; it is washable after the paint has fully dried. ice cream cone diy

Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is nontoxic. However, we discourage the use of the product around the rim of any dinnerware or stemware. Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint is for fun with friends, not food.

You can add one solid color  then come back on top with the dimensional glitter paint. Remember, this stuff dries clear so it will look completely different once they are dry.

I added some glittery red paint to the top to mimic a cherry however you can also glue red pom poms on top.  candy christmas

How stinking CUTE! I love that these are so precious you can literally keep them up all year long. Yes. I am that person that has a hard time putting things away that look like this. You could also add them to packages to add some spice. icecream cone diy ornaments

Today we will close our eyes and make Rainbow Glass Jars, you know the ones that are made for fairies… What! You are not one? Good news for ya, the yumminess in these jars will turn you into one as soon as you sprinkle it on you.

Ok fine all that will happen if you dump this load of glitter on you is a hot dam mess on the floor. Let’s not forget your precious hair, yes it will be full of glitter. I used tinsel glitter for this lil project so you really are doomed. Unless you are like me and you wouldn’t mine glistening in the sun like Edward Cullen did daily. If you like all that glitters, then check out all of my rainbow crafts.

…now let’s get to the nitty gritty

Rainbow Glass Jars

What You’ll Need (You can purchase all of the items I used in this post by clicking on the links below. These are affiliate links so ordering from them helps me buy more glitter and glue)

*Hot Glue Gun
*Slices of Wood
*Mini Glass Jars
*Ribbon (Make sure it’s thin)

I bought a little bag of sliced birch wood at Michaels. They are so dang precious I didn’t even want to use them for this post! FYI: they were only 2 bucks a bag. Now say that 6 times really fast!birch wood

These are all of the colors I used for this post, well minus black. martha stewart rainbow glitter

Step One: Fill your glass jars with glitter. It’s your choice to fill them all the way or half way. I like leaving room for them to float around a little.

Step Two: With the bottle up right put a little hot glue around the rim and then carefully place your piece of wood right on top. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue is dry. VOILA!

Step Three: on the opposite side of the wood put a dot of glue then place your ribbon “good side down” right on top. birch wood craftsStep Four: Tie the ends of your ribbon together. You just created a hanger on your fun glitter jar. diy christmas ornaments

Christmas Ornaments

Today I am sharing something that will make you go ga-ga! Not Lady GaGa just candy cane Ga-Ga.

I made these cupcake ornaments a few weeks ago and they were a hit so I figured I would make another version of them.

I am using white puff paint so it looks like real icing! Have fun, use any color that makes you smile from ear to ear. how to put icing on an ornament

I like to set them down in the container they came in after I apply the puff paint. Once in the container, sprinkle with glitter. decorate cupcake ornaments

When they are dry, add a little hot glue to the bottom of ornament and stick on a cupcake liner.


I cut a few pieces of black and white bakers twine to hang them with. I think they are just precious!how to make candy cane ornaments

A few day’s ago I created some fabulous cupcake ornaments for the I Love to Create Blog. I knew they were cute as a button but I didn’t realize they would be such a big hit! I never make a ton of ornaments, I usually make enough for a photo. I knew these ornaments would make me smile during the holiday’s so I made lot’s of them! At least enough to fill up my cute gold tree.

If you want to see the FULL tutorial on how to make them check it out HERE!

This weekend I hosted a Pinterest party at the Lafayette Michaels store and let me tell you it was so much fun. I had so many happy faces come out to see me. Here are a few pictures from the event, before it got crazy busy!

This was one of the happiest employee’s I have ever met! Good job Michaels for snagging her, she’s a keeper!


I had my handy dandy Tulip spray paint to protect me. Look, there are my cupcake ornaments. 1461872_682780021756163_1230335570_n

Someone was happy to have a Tulip glitter tattoo. I hope you enjoy making these ornaments. See you in the next post!

 I had to share my excitement with you all! I fully understand it’s almost the end of January BUT Wal-Mart still has Christmas things ___ON SALE___! I surely thought they would have sold these babies already but I guess it has to do with luck. I have been to quite a few stores looking for Christmas supplies that are on SALE {{that’s the only way I can afford them hehe}}, and I hit the jackpot.   My collection NOW is amazing! I mean, each year I get all of the pretty ornaments that were SOOOO expensive and pay SOOOO little. It’s actually smart! Why am I telling you this Jaderbugs! Because I want you to go to any store that might sell Christmas supplies and see if they have any left that are on sale! Trust me if there is ANY left they will be on sale, they absolutely want to get rid of them!

Keep your mind open though, if you see some that you like but you don’t like the color get them because I am sure they will be like… 3 cents for the box by now. You can always spray paint them!

This is my recent splurge. ALL OF THIS JADERBUGS! Guess how much I paid for everything?


Now don’t try to shop online at Wal-Mart because everything is the “normal” price. Can you believe I paid 6 bucks! That is a value meal at McDonalds! I will put Wal-Mart’s link HERE so you can find the one closest to you!

The big boxes have I think, 25 ornaments in each box and they typically would be around $9.98 a box! The colors are AMAZING! Looking forward to my bright and whimsical Christmas next year!

Excited about doing a lamp shade tutorial for you Jaderbugs today,
