DIY // Starbucks Ornament



my husband & i got Starbucks a lot when we took our road trip to DC last month. so, we had a lot of the cup sleeves in our car by the time we got home. we wanted a way to remember our trip, so we decided we would make an ornament out of one of our Starbucks sleeves from DC. you guys, i am all about some simple crafts & this is as simple as they come!


materials needed:
starbucks sleeve
plastic ornament from a craft store
paper shreds

 

step 1: cut out the part of the sleeve you want to use
step 2: stick into the ornament
step 3: fill the rest of the ornament with paper shreds

the only thing that's tricky is trying to keep the starbucks sleeve center & straight. i stuck a pen through the top of the ornament to hold it in place while i put the shreds in.

what ornaments have you made for your tree?
