Bottle Cap Christmas Tree DIY Tutorial

Notes:

This is, hands down, my favorite craft made for this holiday season. My niece (and I) have made some goodies, but this one… just blows me away in person. And, I am not ashamed to say it, I had nothing to do with it except I bought the paper mache triangles for a craft a few years ago, and left them in a craft box when I did not move forward with my idea. My niece had wanted to make a tree with all the beer bottle caps she has (courtesy of my uncle who drinks beer near and far – some of those caps are from Asia, Europe, and South America as well as from the good old USA and Canada!), but she could not figure out how to make it happen with a round-cone. As soon as she saw my triangle cones while rummaging though that old craft box, she knew her idea was doable!

• This is not an easy craft to make. The bending was daunting to me. Her hands are nowhere near as large as mine, but she was able to give each bottle cap that needed bending a push against the soft side of her palm and bend those caps every time. She did suggest that people may want to wear a gardening glove on the hand holding the bottle cap to aid in traction and to prevent cuts. As she put it “this is a commitment.” And, she is giving them away as gifts!

• Domestic beer caps are MUCH easier to work with than craft beer caps. (They bend easier.)

• Use a low-temp glue gun so as not to burn yourself.

• Theme your bottle caps, or choose randomly. Either will look lovely.

• Set aside colorful caps that will stand-out for the ornaments.

• While the instructions are short, this is a time-consuming craft. Shingling is easier than fitting the caps around a bend, but it does take more than a few hours to make one of these trees.

Bottle Cap Christmas Tree DIY Tutorial Directions

• Start at the top of your triangle, and work down.
• Do not worry about any “holes”. They will be covered with “ornaments.”
• If you have all white or all green bottle caps, you may want to paint the triangle first. In other words, if you are going for a monochrome look, paint the base.
• Flatten the beer cap ends. You are hot gluing the flat part of the triangle.

• To go around the edges of the triangle: bend with your hand. You may want to hold up the bottle cap to the triangle and see where exactly you have to bend the cap to make it fit around the side.

• The top part of this craft is the most imperfect. If you have gold or brown bottle caps, use those at the top. It will help mitigate the imperfections.
• You need to fit every piece to start. As you get to the bottom and the triangle broadens, this gets easier.

• Shingle at the broad parts of the tree by (again) flattening the cap, and then hot gluing with slight overlapping.

• Hot glue the ornaments over the holes. Some of our “ornaments” were flattened, some were not. It added a bit of depth to not flatten them, but they were more difficult to hot glue in place.

• Turn on your battery operated lights and make sure they work.
• Glue the end of the light string, and place it at the top of the tree.

The Grinch Inspired Wreath DIY Tutorial

A beautiful How the Grinch Stole Christmas inspired wreath sure to make even the coldest heart burst! This step by step tutorial is complete with (free) pdfs for the hat and heart for you to print and make exact. This wreath will look great on your front door, over your mantel, or on a wall. Truly unique holiday decor!

Mr. Max’s favorite toy is The Grinch. My mother purchased one for Hubby a few years ago. Hubby is the world’s WORST gift-getter. Worst. Ever. Nothing purchased for him is right (ironically, my mother (who is also a poor gift-getter) has done better for him than just about anyone else). He used to be highly entertaining – he’d crab about a gift, and we would all laugh (at him), but after a while the shtick got old. So, one Christmas my mother bought hubby a Grinch plush toy. Hubby, in turn, gave it to Mr. Max.

Mr. Max played with that thing a lot. When traveling down to Florida, we would pack up Max’s favorite toys – including the Grinch – and bed(s) and then start driving.

One year on the drive down I looked at Hubby and said, “What is that SMELL!?!?”

It turns out it was the Grinch. Max’s goob is not exactly fragrant, and The Grinch ended up malodorous. Truly. It smelled disgusting and polluted the car.

We bagged up Mr. Grinch for the rest of the drive down to Florida, and then Hubby went on a hunt for a new Grinch once we arrived down south. Hubby paid-up for a new one on fleabay, and Mr. Max had two Grinchs for a while! Last year when we drove down to Florida, the original Grinch hit the trash can on our way out of town.

The “new” Grinch now stinks, and Hubby is gonna have to find one – again.

Needless to say, The Grinch is a well-known icon in our household.

So, when my niece suggested “we” (the royal we) make a Grinch wreath, I was all for it! My niece LOVES Dr. Seuss (she owns some first editions) and she is passing along that love to her son.

A few notes on this wreath:

• This “The Grinch” wreath is far less fussy than many of the others out there. That was by choice. This wreath represents his heart growing three sizes (hence the bursting pipe cleaners) when he comes to fully accept the meaning of Christmas. Hubby saw the tulle color on the wreath (with nothing else on it), and immediately said, “A Grinch wreath!” It was easily recognized even without the heart and hat!

• Dr. Suess is well known for heavy black lines. You will note that on the hat. Do not skip that step.

• Tulle is significantly more difficult to work with than material. Keep that in mind.

• You want your wreath nice and full. If you skimp, you cannot hide it. Make sure your matted tulle is nice and full!

• Insert 2 halves at each corner of the hat, hot glue in place (these will attach your hat to the wreath, so make sure they are long enough to do that while being secure inside the hat).
• Insert a small amount of fiberfill into the hat.
• Dab some hot glue on the bottom so the fiberfill will not come out (you can do the whole line if you like).
• Attach the hat to the wreath. This is a left facing hat so it will go on the left side of the wreath. If you need your hat to face right, make sure you have turned it right after cutting.

• Display!
• Note that I did not bother with a hanger. You definitely could if you wanted one. This is fairly light so it could be as simple as a pipe cleaner twisted on the back of the wreath and then twisted tight to form a hanger.

How to Make a Christmas Cupcake Tree

This easy to put together Christmas cupcake tree is fabulous for your holiday party or get-together. The cupcake stand is simple to dress up, and the cupcakes take hardly any time at all to decorate, yet everyone will think this easy-peasy snack/decor tree took you hours to put together. Nothing could be further from the truth!!

• This Christmas cupcake display was actually part of a children’s Christmas table. There is nothing fancy about it, it comes together easily, and yet it looks great!

• If you’d like you can add strings of popcorn, dollar store lights or knot together licorice for garland.

Note: the star at the top is made out of a Tootsie roll fruit chew. If it is warm in your house, it is going to fall over. The difference in the star shape from cutting it to a few hours later is amazing (it will wilt). Prop it up with the same colored fruit chew behind it (or eliminate the Christmas tree star).

• Green frosting: I used this recipe: Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe (one batch) with a TON of green colorant (enough so your frosting is vibrant or dark green) + ½ tablespoon of meringue powder
Meringue powder will stiffen to your frosting. If you are transporting and the frosting is touched, instead of smearing, the frosting will just dent (once dry).

• Insert a Grass Tip 233 into the end of a pastry bag.
• Load the pastry bag with green frosting.
• Frost the cupcakes by stipling (bouncing up and down) for a pine needle look. Simply squirt from the pastry bag through the Grass Tip 233 and lift. It goes quite quickly, so do not let the tip intimidate you.

• Decorate tops of cupcakes with candy. Since these are your “ornaments” you can go for a theme, a color scheme, or just place random candies on the cupcakes.
• You can decorate all at once before placing the cupcakes into the tree, or do them one-by-one. If you do them all at once, count the cupcakes per row and stagger the height if that is your plan. You want the taller ones on the bottom, a little less tall next shelf, shorter on the top, and maybe one very tall item at the very top. If you decorate a cupcake and place it on the tree, you can easily see what height should come next. You can also have them less “matchy.” These are all one height, but nothing says you have to follow what we did.

• Place cupcakes in the tree stand.
• The tree in this tutorial was done all at once. However, my niece has done this tree many times over the years, so she knew exactly what heights for the candies. If it is your first time making this Christmas Cupcake Tree, and you staggered the heights, I would suggest the one-by-one approach.
• And that’s it. It took about 45 minutes to do this fun little Christmas cupcake tree, and that includes the cupcake baking time!! A fast, easy way to dress up a Christmas party table.
