Tactical Ammo DIY Christmas Ornament, perfect for the outdoors man, hunter, shooter in your life. Man or Boy Christmas Ornaments for those who love their gunGuns and ammo are not for everyone, but they happen to be a big part of my family so it is only fitting that this tactical ammo ornament finds it way onto our tree this year.   I figured I would post the idea since I know many of you would love to make one as well.  This would be perfect to remember your first hunting trip or completing hunters safety certification.  Of if you just happen to really like guns, this might be the perfect ornament for you.

To make this you will need:

Like I said before DO NOT use live ammo, anyone who has or is familiar with guns know this is only common sense…but  I just want to make sure you understand to only use empty brass/ bullets for this project.   I used the larger plastic DISC ornaments to allow for the larger bullet size, but you could always use the normal clear ornaments, you would just have to use smaller brass, like maybe a 22 shell.

Take the top of the ornament off,  put your pine branch inside, then add your EMPTY brass. If you got a large buck or something like that, you  could also add some of the details of your hunt on a piece of card-stock on the inside. Use some hot glue to secure the top back on the ornament. Wrap with jute to give it more of an rustic look, add a tag with the year  written on it attached to the top.

Hope you have as much fun making this project as we did.

Maybe its just me, but I love a good pun or play on words. I think they are cute in the right context. I especially love when they go along with a small gift. That is why I searched for one when I decided to give my kid’s teachers lotions and body sprays for Christmas this year. I couldn’t find anything that I liked, so instead I made my own and now I can share them with you!

These are great for more than just lotions though. The “Berry” Christmas one would be great for anything having to do with berries. The SCENT-sational one (center in photo above) would be great with anything scented. (think lotions, soaps, room sprays, candles, so many different ideas!). And the Be Merry is great for anything and everything. I think they are a fun way to add a special finishing touch to your thoughtful gift.

To make these you will need:

“String Cheese” Mozzarella cheese sticks

Ribbon

FREE printable  Hats or make your own with black paper.

Double-sided tape

Sharpies – Black and Orange

Scissors

First cut out the hats, turn them over and put some double sided tape on them. Place the hat on the top of the cheese stick (on the side that does NOT have logos or writing).

Use the sharpie markers to draw a face on your snowman. Two medium sized black dots for eyes, a orange line for a nose and  five small black dots for a mouth.

Next tie a piece of  ribbon around the cheese to make it look like a scarf, tie a double knot so it stays in place. Trim to appropriate length.

Just below the scarf,  draw 3 medium sized black dots to look like buttons.
