Gift Topper/Tree Ornament



Christmas day is next week; my time is being crunched and I seem to be getting more stressed over shopping, prepping and organizing the house for all the holiday parties and the big day ahead. I want everything to be easy… and still stylish so I’ve come up with some inspiring decor touches that you and/or your kids can have fun doing in little time and with little money.

Each day until Christmas I will post a simple & stylish holiday decor idea that can help get your home in holiday-shape over the next 10 days. All projects are affordable and easy (level 1). We will celebrate day three of the ‘Twelve-Daze‘ series with a toy car craft that I recently discovered; and it couldn’t be easier:

Toy Car & Tree Craft:

christmastreecarMy inspiration was from this photo I found online last year. Completely adorable!!!

Needed: Small toy car (Matchbook or Dinky-style cars), small holiday village trees, kitchen twine, school glue.


Its the simplest assembly; place the tree on top of the car; add a dab of school glue to keep it in place. Wrap the car and tree with a piece of twine or kitchen string. You can also use the string to create a hanging loop.

Still got a Barbie car hidden somewhere around the house? Here’s your chance to bring it out of storage and display it for an upbeat version! Of course you will want to serve pink champagne to visitors!

A few more inspiring examples:



I’d love to find some vintage mini cars. I’ll look at yard sales throughout the year; I think the older ones will have more charm. Use these little creations as gift-toppers (to folks at any age) or to hang on the Christmas tress as ornaments.

I look forward to posting another simple idea tomorrow- HINT: Christmas Project for DAZE #9 will most likely include cellophane – see you tomorrow with another easy-breezy holi-dazed project! Enjoy! KL
