  4. Then, also with the hot glue, put a ring of the garland around your juice lid.
  5. While the glue dries, you can make a stack of accordion medallions. Once everything has dried you just have to assemble. Glue the glittered Santa juice lid into the middle of the paper medallion using the hot glue gun.

I think this is a great idea. I personally like to alter large and small decorations on our tree, but if bobbylonardo thinks this is too large, here's an idea for him. Eliminate the paper altogether, glue one juice lid to edge of garland and then decorate the other juice lid the same way, insert a ribbon loop between the lids and glue the lids together. What say?!

Looks kid of big to hang on a tree.

Hi there, the great thing about this project is that it's customizable! You can choose to make the paper accent as large or small as you'd like. The lid is pretty small, so it should be able to hang on a tree just fine. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts
