Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Christmas Ornaments

2 Dec

tmnt5So I decided to make my oldest two nieces and oldest two nephews their own Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ornaments after seeing them on a friend’s tree. It is really rather simple and it makes for great fun for the TMNT lover. When my nieces and nephews were little they would play TMNT and, there being 4 of them, each would be their favorite turtle fighting Shredder and other assorted bad guys. They also did this with Mortal Kombat.  Remember Ninja Turtles are not just for boys.

You will need:

  • 4 Green Ornament Balls($1.50 for a 5-pack  at the Dollar General)
  • 4 – 9 in x 12 in stick-it felt sheets in red, orange, blue, & purple(Around a $1.50 per sheet at A.C. Moore)
  • 1 package of 8mm wiggle eyes 35 ct (Around $1 a pack at A.C. Moore)
  • Tacky Glue ($2.59 for a 4 oz bottle at A.C. Moore)

tmnt21. Measure 9 inch strip on each felt color. You need the strip to be around 10mm – 12mm wide so that they wiggle eyes will fit with room. (My strips were 18mm wide.)

2.tmnt3 Peel off the paper backing on one strip. Wrap the strip around the ball slightly top of center. Press firmly to stick any creases.

tmnt43. Using the craft glue, glue 2 of the 8mm wiggle eyes onto the colored felt.

I made them each a set for I ended up with 16 Ninja Turtles.

Please note: Glue is still a little wet on the eyes.
