Will you be making Christmas ornaments this holiday season?

Consider personalizing clear ball ornaments as a fun DIY project!  They come in both glass or shatterproof plastic varieties and are so easy to personalize and craft with. Score a 2-pack for just $1 at Dollar Tree!

The options are endless when embellishing and filling clear ornaments!

You can paint or glitter the inside, decoupage the outside, fill them with candy or faux snow, personalize with photos or vinyl decals. They’re a blank canvas for creativity, and a fun holiday activity for all ages!

The good news is Dollar Tree carries clear plastic ball ornaments as well as other craft supplies to compile some of these examples on the cheap!

Here are 15 brilliant ideas to get you inspired…

1.) Reindeer Ornaments 

Grab some brown pipe cleaners, and googly eyes to make these fun reindeer ornaments. They are so perfect and adorable for kids to help with!

2.) Baby’s First Christmas Ornament

How great is this keepsake with a baby’s cap and hospital bracelet?! Such an adorable idea to display a memory of the day your child was born!

3.) Simple Snowman Ornaments

Do you wanna build a snowman?! This is such a fun ornament to make with the kids and the best part is most of the supplies can be found at your dollar store including the clear fill-able ornaments, pipe cleaners, and faux snow. Get the directions HERE.

4.) DIY Photo Snow Globe Ornament 

Photo gifts and keepsakes make the most thoughtful presents! Those are my favorite to put on the tree each year. Go HERE to learn how to make this adorable Snow Globe Ornament.

5.) Grinch Ornaments

If your kids are fans of  The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, consider making some easy DIY Grinch ornaments! This fun example uses green colored candy, but you could always use green beads or strips of paper for a non-edible version. So cute.

6.) Melted Snowman Ornament 

Grab some epsom salt and peppercorns to make the cutest melted snowman ornament ever! Looks super easy to make too.

7.) DIY Beach Vacation Ornament

Next time you’re on a beach vacation, save some sand and seashells to make a fun vacation keepsake ornament for your Christmas tree.

8.) Fabric Scrap Ornament

I LOVE this simple and pretty idea of using fabric scraps and Mod Podge to embellish clear ornaments. Christmas scrapbook paper would be nice as well.

9.) Glitter Ornaments 

You won’t believe how easy glitter ornaments are to make using glitter and household floor wax of all things! It takes less than 5 minutes to make one and glitter ornaments are SO PRETTY! I made the ornaments pictured above using these easy directions.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
