DIY Matchbox Car Ornaments

We have already started decorating for Christmas at our house! I know some people think I am crazy, but I can’t help it! 

Since we have a MUCH bigger house, last year we gave the boys their own tree to decorate. (I have mine and they have theirs. Hopefully, they will leave mommy’s tree ALONE! HA!) It is so much fun to let them loose on a tree with no worry about breaking anything or looking perfect. But, I had a problem when I ran out of unbreakable ornaments. 

Ingenuity struck me! I grabbed their box of matchbox Cars and some pipe cleaners and went to work. Using the pipe cleaners, I quickly wrapped the cars and made little loops to hang them on the tree. (warning: I went a little picture crazy! hehehe!)
