What to do with games that your child no longer plays with? I’ve had this box of Jenga (knock-off brand) hanging around the house for a while. I hate to throw things out so I repurposed it into these Jenga Christmas ornaments. Aren’t they cute??

What do you need? I have most of these things at home except for the hooks that I bought at a hardware store.

Jule twine (not pictured here), Modge Podge, Washi Tape, Hooks, an assortment of ribbons, blocks and any pictures or copies of something that you want to create in an ornament. I used images of pictures that I printed very small to fit the block. The girls I babysit visited Guatemala this past summer and they brought these cookies with the quetzal wrapper. The Quetzal is the currency of Guatemala and I thought it’d be cool for them to make an ornament out of it! I also printed tiny pictures of when they dressed up for Hispanic Heritage Month this past September. Click here to see the picture.

For the picture ornaments:

Follow the instructions on the Modge Podge to glue the pictures on to the blocks and then layer with the Modge Podge. Let dry.

For the washi tape ornaments:

Wrap the washi tape around the blocks and then Modge Podge over it to seal it. I wouldn’t recommend doing this method with the glitter washi tape.

For the hooks, I patiently screwed each one on the Jenga block with my bare fingers. You can use a screwdriver but I didn’t need one.

This is a fun activity to do with kids, too! Except for the screwing part. 🙂

Pin for later!
