Last year I received this cute gift in the mail from Aubrey-a little favor filled with bubble gum and a note that said “Blowing Christmas Wishes Your Way For a Wonderful Holiday Season”. It was so simple and perfect for a last minute gift idea, I knew I had to share. I used plastic bulb ornaments, and then made up a tag that you can print off.
They’re super simple, so the kids can get in on the action too – making them the perfect gift for them to make for friends or favors for a Christmas party. We have found some families in our new neighborhood that we’ll be dropping ours off at. Catch me after the jump for the details and free printable!
Free Printable For Blowing Christmas Wishes Gift
- gumballs – I bought mine bulk at a candy store in the mall
- clear plastic ornaments – you can find them at most craft stores
- string or ribbon to tie on tag
- hole punch if you have one
- free printable label – found below
Carefully take out the top part of the ornament, and fill it with the gumballs.
I filled mine about 3/4 of the way full.
Then just squeeze the two little prongs together on the top to insert in the bulb. Aren’t they pretty? They would look great on a tree too, yes?
Now just print out the tags. I provided one that is single in case you wanted to resize it – and then the one below with multiple tags. Just click on the image you want to print, this will open it in a new window, right click and save to your computer, then print.
The graphics print out more vibrant than shown – perfect for the colorful gumballs. I printed on white card stock for a sturdy tag.
Cut out around the wreath. After I had them all cut out, I went around the edges to match the contours of the wreath and bow.
Then take a hole punch or the tip of something to make a little hole to thread the string or ribbon through.
Then tie the tag to the top using the little part you would hang the ornament from. That’s it! Easy right?
Now if your looking for a candy free option – just tie it to the top of a bottle of bubbles! That is what we did this year for our valentines.
If you would like to share these, thank you! Just please take one image to link to the post. Please leave the printable images on this site out of respect of the artist I purchased from. If you’d like your own – I bought them at theinknest.com – they have all sorts of fun ones!
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season – I talked to a friend today that felt like she had missed the boat on getting things out, done, hung, and given – I think the internet can make us feel a little anxious – but breath – you still have 12 more days! Try to enjoy them and pick a couple simple things like this to enjoy with your family and spread a little cheer 🙂
We have a couple more simple ideas coming up that you can easily pull off by the big day-stay tuned!
