DIY Ornament Tree

19 Nov

It’s that time of year again! Thanks to Pinterest and the secret boards I went crazy pinning all these craft ideas for Christmas and couldn’t wait to try them out! I decided to go with what seemed to be the quickest to make (my school work load has sky rocketed!) and the ornament tree was pretty easy. All you need is a styrofoam cone, ornaments (I grabbed a ton from the dollar store, 3 different sizes), a glue gun and some garland (also from the dollar store). I also found these cute ribbon ornaments from the dollar store that I glued on the front of the tree. The dollar store has a ton of cute Christmas nick nacks so get creative and see what you can do with them!

Styrofoam Cone

Dollar Store Ornaments

First things first, remove the tops on the ornaments. You’ll be gluing the tips to the cone so you don’t need them. Once that’s all done you can start gluing ornaments from the bottom and work your way up. I wanted the same ornaments to be lined up diagonally so it wrapped around the tree nicely, but you can line them up however you want.

It’s easier if you start with a couple on the bottom, like 3-4, and then stack them on top of those to start the diagonal line. As you work your way up the cone begin to use smaller ornaments. I bought 3 different sizes. The ones in the picture are the largest ones I used.

Once you finish putting all the ornaments on, you’ll notice there’s a bunch of open spaces and it just doesn’t look good. Easy fix! While you’re at the dollar store, pick up a strand of garland. Cut it into pieces and glue between the spaces.

Super easy and adorable! More Christmas goodies to come so check back soon!
