These DIY Sprinkles Ornaments are fun and easy to make, and they are a perfect use for all those extra sprinkles! They are a perfect craft for kids to make for Christmas!
I don't know about you, but I have at least a million-zillion extra sprinkles in my cake room and I'm not sure I'll ever have a use for all of them.
Every year I try to do one or two or even three crafts/traditions with my kids for the holidays. But three only happens when I'm really ambitious (ie., crazy) 😜 ...
Usually we bake. Sometimes we put puzzles together. Driving around to look at Christmas lights is always on our to-do list (get a scavenger hunt printable here). We watch an Advent calender on video. We make ornaments for grandparents and for our tree, etc.
Sometimes I know way in advance which things I want to do and have an idea in mind already for ornaments. Other years I just wing it or search on Pinterest at the last minute.
Kids Craft Idea: DIY Christmas Ornaments
But when I came across this crafty idea to use up my sprinkles and make super cute ornaments for Christmas with my kids, I knew that's one thing we'd be doing this year!
And of course I had to share! For all of these ornaments, I used Christmas colored sprinkles, but I assure you, they're just as cute with any and all colors and shapes of sprinkles.
Also, I bought little light-bulb shaped ornaments. But there are dozens of sizes, styles and shapes that you could use for this project! Use whatever you like best or is easiest for you to find. I've seen them at Hobby Lobby, Walmart, and of course, on Amazon.
So, let me show you how easy these are to make. Go ahead and order your supplies and you can be ready to make them for the holidays! You can also find all of these in your local Hobby Lobby!

Alrighty, let me show you how to make these easy ornaments!
DIY Sprinkles Ornament Supplies:
- Bulb Glass Jars with cork (or any shape/style of clear ornaments that can be filled)
- Decorative ribbon
- Various Sprinkles
- Screw Eyes
- Glue Gun
1. Remove the cork from each bottle. Attach a screw eye to the center of each cork.
2. Pour sprinkles into each bottle and reattach the cork with the screw eye on the top. Press firmly.
3. You can also use hot glue if you don't feel like the corks are secure enough. That's what I prefer.
4. Use the decorative ribbon to tie a bow around the bottle.
5. That's it - you're done! Hang them on your tree with hooks!! 🎄
