Now I know you all have the song going through your head and by now you are at, "Lets have a Party" When we have a family party this is what our counter tops and tables look like. Do you have the same situation at your house?
This Party was the day after Thanksgiving at my sisters house. We celebrated five birthdays. Normally I would not use shot glasses for kids but, in this instance they look like mini cups that we use every party for our family. You will see during this post I have a large family.
Each year Prince Charming and I buy Christmas presents for our nieces and nephews. When the kids were younger we could afford to buy them a gift but now with just under 30 gifts we have become creative. I made Monograms Gifts for all of them last year. This year we are giving them some cash but it must be done in a personal way. That is how I came up with this +Solo Cup ornament idea. Each cup will carry a bit of cash inside for the person named on the cup.
I purchased my shot glasses at a pharmacy but, they now sell them at the +Dollar Store Crafts. The remaining items I had in my stash at home. Luckily I found them all with out going on a two hour hunt in my craft room.
During a Chat with my sister and my mom I punched holes in the cups with a regular paper whole punch. You can see that I chose a spot near the rim.
Next keeping with tradition I wrote the names on the cups with the fine +Sharpie black marker. Then I cut 8" of decorative twine tied a knot in the top and looped it through the hole I made earlier.Instagram in the next few weeks to see a few on my trees.
