MAKE: dollar-store ninja Xmas tree ornaments

Here's a great tutorial for using ribbon, baubles, and googly eyes to honor the Christmas Spirit intrinsic in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with your festive Krampusbush.

If you don't have green ball ornaments (or the right shade of green) then coat your ball ornaments with a coat of primer and a few coats of green spray paint, waiting between applications for the paint to dry.

Cut a length of ribbon longer than the diameter of your ornaments. Then, wrap the ornaments with the ribbon around the centre to make the Ninja Turtle mask. If your ribbon is thin you can wrap around the ornament twice to give the mask the right thickness. I used a dab of hot glue to secure the middle of the ribbon to the ornament, then wrapped the ribbon around the ornament twice, gluing to secure in place. The ribbon ends were then tied in a knot.

Repeat the process until all Turtle ornaments have masks.

Next, apply a small dab of hot glue to the back of googly-eyes and apply two to each turtle ornament directly on top of the mask. Repeat for each turtle.
