I adorned my Christmas tree with McDonald’s toys, which my children adore

A Florida mother on a tight budget is proud of herself for repurposing her children’s old Happy Meal toys into Christmas ornaments.

Rachael Harrison, age 31, repurposed the trinkets using a small screwdriver, screws, and black ribbon for approximately $15, or nearly the cost of four Happy Meals.

While some parents may scoff at the tacky decorations, Harrison’s children, Madeline, 6, and Drake, 2, enjoyed the outcome.

Harrison told SWNS, “As a sentimental mother, as I was clearing out my children’s toy box, it was like a light bulb went out.”

“I suddenly wondered, Why don’t I make them into ornaments?

Madeline and Drake rummaged through the Happy Meal toys, many of which, according to Harrison, had Disney-related themes. They were permitted to keep the ones that still possessed magical properties.

The mother, a cosmetics artist, remembers that Madeline’s pocket contained a little kitten.

Harrison shared her pearls of wisdom by stating, “These are all toys that were previously their favorites, and I retain them for the memories.”

She stated that she used a screwdriver to insert a hoop into the toys and threaded ribbon through so that they could dangle from the branches. Reportedly, both children have a little tree in their rooms. Obviously, they are enjoying the look.

Harrison invites other parents to experiment with eco-friendly, shatterproof, and incredibly inexpensive Christmas ornaments.

She grinned, “It means a great deal to me to have items from my children’s youth.”
