I cannot believe it is almost time for Christmas. I am finished most of my gift buying for the family, and all that is left is the do it yourself gifts I need to make for friends and neighbors. In the past I have done coffee gift cards in coffee mugs, or mason jar gifts. This year I am making an easy NJ Lottery for the Holidays ornament gifts with the new holiday scratch off tickets New Jersey Lottery has put out!
The 4 new Holiday Instant Games ($1 Holiday Spirits, $2 Holiday Luck Times 10, $5 Holiday Spectacular, and $10 $10,000 Bonus) are perfect gifts for anyone over 18 either as stocking stuffers, in a card, or as something a little more creative like the ornaments I made!
I used the $1 Holiday Cheer and $2 Holiday Spirits tickets to make the easy NJ Lottery for the Holidays ornament gift since the clear ornaments I bought were smaller sized, but there are also larger clear ornaments in different sizes at the craft store if you want to use the larger tickets. I am using the Holiday Spectacular and the $10,000 Bonus in the mountain of Christmas cards I need to send out instead, or maybe make the fun gift boxes with them like in this fun video:
NJ Lottery generously provided me with my tickets, but you can find the new Holiday Instant Games at and store that sells lottery tickets. In addition to the NJ Lottery tickets you will only need the clear craft ornaments, although I also added some plastic berries and foliage I saw on sale to make the ornaments more festive. Be as creative as you want with additional fillers, or stick to just the NJ Lottery tickets!
This easy NJ Lottery for Holidays ornament gift takes only a few minutes to create, and once the gift recipient removes the lottery cards (and possibly wins big) they are still left with an ornament perfect sized to add a photo to. That is how I usually use these empty ornaments, which is where the easy NJ Lottery for the Holidays ornament gift idea came from. All that ypu need to do for this fun gift is to remove the silver top of the ornament, add any baubles you want like my berries and foliage, and roll up the lottery ticket to slide into the ornament before replacing the top! Minutes later, with minimal supplies, you will have an awesomely original and easy NJ Lottery for the Holidays ornament gift for friends and neighbors!
