DIY Lilo Ornament

Lilo is such a lovable character. Why do I love her? She struggles to fit in because of her struggles at home. When she finds Stitch she finds someone who understands her. Coming from an abusive home I find I really relate to Lilo.

Did you know that Lilo’s last name is Pelekai? “Lilo” can mean “lost” or “the generous one” in Hawaiian, hence her generosity to others in the series, and possibly her loneliness.

Materials to Make Ornament

For this DIY Disney Lilo ornament, you will need a few simple supplies and a hot glue gun.

Glass ornaments provide much better results than plastic. I have used plastic in the past but really love how pretty the glass ornaments turn out!

If you don’t have a glue gun you can also try super glue. They sell cheap super glue at the Dollar Tree. If using superglue, you will want to hold the leaves in place for like 30 seconds.
