It may seem like we are Star Wars obsessed right now but seriously who can blame us?!? But the truth is Peter Pan has also been a long time favorite around here. In fact, our Neverland Halloween costumes are one of my favorite family themes so far. These adorable DIY Peter Pan ornaments are awesome reminders of my boys and their obsession with Peter Pan when they were little. Sometimes I wish they’d never grow up. 😉
DIY Peter Pan Ornament Supplies
- Clear glass or plastic ornaments
- Paint (light green, dark green and dark red)
- Wide green ribbon
- Feathers (red and white)
- White fabric
- Metal wire
- Ribbons for hanging (red, green and blue)
- Hot glue gun
Start by filling three ornaments paint. Dark green for Peter Pan, light green for Tinkerbell and red for Captain Hook. Pour a generous amount of the appropriate color into each ornament and swirl around until the entire ornament is covered. Place the ornaments upside down into a cup to allow excess paint to drip out. This is an extremely important step as you don’t want excess wet paint sitting inside the ornaments, this may take a few hours, I would even recommend leaving them to dry overnight. Once your ornaments are completely dry, you can start decorating them.
DIY Tinkerbell Ornament
Cut the bottom of the wide green ribbon into a triangle pattern to resemble Tink’s skirt. Don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect. Glue the skirt around the center of the ornament with the hot glue gun. Attach a light blue ribbon for hanging.
DIY Peter Pan Ornament
Trim the red feather to best resemble the signature red feather in Peter Pan’s hat. Glue the feather towards the top of the ornament. Attach a green ribbon for hanging.
DIY Captain Hook Ornament
Shape thin silver wire into Captain Hook’s hook, it resembles a question mark. Cut a small piece of white fabric to give the illusion of Captain Hook’s white sleeve. Trim the edges of the fabric to mimic his ruffled shirt sleeve. Then trim the white feather to resemble Captain Hook’s signature hat feather. Glue the feather on first, followed by the hook. Finally cover the end of the hook with Hook’s fabric sleeve. Attach a red ribbon for hanging.
