Disney Planes DIY Ornament Tutorial

Disney Planes DIY Ornament Tutorial

Make your own Dusty Crophopper Christmas Tree Ornament this holiday season with this step-by-step tutorial. 

Are your kids obsessed with Disney Planes Fire & Rescue like mine is? We’ve watched the movie more times than I can count. Thankfully I love it just as much as my little guy. So it’s no surprise that Disney Planes Fire & Rescue toys have topped his holiday wish list this year. To celebrate his love for Disney Planes Fire & Rescue we made this DIY Dusty Ornament. I found everything I needed to make this while finishing some last minute Christmas shopping at Walmart.

One of our favorite things to do around the holiday season is create homemade ornaments. Making homemade ornaments are not only fun but it’s a great activity for kids. They can make them for their own tree or for family and friends.
I even found these fun Planes lollipops that were perfect for the propeller on this ornament.If you can’t find these you could just use thick black card stock or a material similar.

Supplies needed:

  • Orange Paint
  • White Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Clear Plastic Ornaments
  • Planes Lollipop (if you can’t find these, soda bottle caps would work to make the propellar)
Step 1: Tape off half of the ornament and paint the bottom white. Let dry. Once white paint is completely dry, remove tape.

Step 2: Paint the top half of the ornament orange. Let dry.


Step 3: Once the ornament is dry hot glue the propeller to the front of the ornament.

Step 4: Paint or cut out eyes and attach.
That’s it. These ornaments are super easy to make and so much fun for the kids!

Do you make DIY ornaments around the holidays? I’d love to hear about them!

Love those! what a cute ornament. My kids LOVE Planes too. The little die-cast characters would make perfect stocking stuffers.
