I love beautiful, sparkly Christmas decorations. They make me smile. What makes me cry is when they get broken by two little boys. Solution? I got it right here for you.
Hit up your dollar store for some pretty plastic bowls and/or plates. Grab some shatter-proof ornaments (also at the dollar store).
Pull out a few cans you aren’t going to be using for the next month or so and wrap with wrapping paper or metallic tissue paper.
Stack the plates or bowls on top of the cans to create a beautiful stand.
Fill the plates and bowls with shatterproof ornaments. Add in any other pretty, non-breakable items and voila! Take that little boys!

This is awesome! I have a young son who loves to put his hand on shiny, pretty, breakable things. Thanks for the tip!

Great idea for a centerpiece! I love making things from dollar store finds! Thanks for sharing!
that center recipe seems really strongChristmas Recipes for Kids
I love this! We used the plastic ornaments for our wedding, but placed them in a lead crystal bowl. It’s amazing how festive simple Christmas balls look when placed inside a bowl. I think I am going to pin this on Pinterest so others can see it.
Great option especially when you have young children around.

I only have one boy (and one girl), both now adults, but one boy with autism with a high degree of impulsivity =at least 5 neuro-typicals, LOL. I didn’t have glasses (Tupperware) or any dishes non-Corelle for the first 20 (at lest) years of his life. So I relate. And now we have to dog proof!! 3 standard poodles+the boy-now-man+hubs+me in a smallish ranch. Always thankful for unbreakable anything!!
