DIY Coaster TMNT Christmas Ornaments

We love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in our house. So we thought we would make a Christmas ornament out of coasters for a fun kids TMNT Christmas craft.

Craft Materials

Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:

, , , , Coasters

I’m so excited to share another Christmas craft I did with the boys!! A couple months ago we did some toilet paper roll ninja turtles and they were such a hit. So I thought we would make some TMNT Christmas ornaments.

The idea started when I found these awesome coasters for $1.00. I’ve been saving them for a another project but never got around to it. One of my friends showed me some cute TMNT ornaments and thought I should make some with the boys. I took the challenge!!

I wanted to make something different. I thought the coasters were a perfect shape for an ornament and turtle head.

Getting Started

Once you have the coasters everything else is pretty easy to gather up! We decided to use a metallic green instead of a basic green. I thought the metallic was a little more festive.

I forgot the hot glue gun here.

Step 1 – Paint Coasters

I only needed to paint one coat on the coasters. BUT the coasters do take awhile to dry. I let mine dry for about 30 minutes.

So maybe paint them before lunch and by the time lunch is over they should be completely dry!!

Step 2 – Cut and add Mask

Next it’s time to make the mask. I cut a strip for the front of the mask and two of the small shapes for the sides.

I added a little hot glue to keep them all in place.  We use hot glue for a lot of our projects. I of course am supervising the entire time!

Step 3 – Add Googly Eyes

Now it’s time the add our fun googly eyes! Just dab some hot glue on the back, voila!

Step 4 – Add Turtle Face

With the face I drew out the nose and mouth with a sharpie. Then I went over with black paint. I didn’t like how the sharpie looked but it was great to guide me when painting.

Once the black paint was dry I added a touch of red for the tongue.

Step 5 – Add Your Ribbon

Finally add your festive ribbon to hang your ornaments up! I wish I had a festive ribbon for every color of the turtles to match. That would have been pretty cute!


Step 6 – Finishing Touches

This project turned out so cool and they look great on the tree!! The boys were so excited to hang them up. I was kinda excited too.
