Red, gold, and silver ornament centerpieces

It’s officially time for Christmas decorating!

Even though we’re still recovering from a fulfilling Thanksgiving, there’s no better time to start getting your holiday decor ready (if you haven’t started already!). Hip2Save reader Amber recently shared with us a frugal and festive way to make eye-catching centerpieces using inexpensive Dollar Tree & Michaels craft supplies!

Garland, cones, and onaments from Dollar Tree

I have been a Hip2Saver for a few years now, and I love your site! I saw that you posted a DIY Dollar Tree Christmas centerpiece recently and thought I would share something that I made on the cheap from mostly Dollar Tree items!

You’ll need:

Removing ornament tops and gluing them to kraft cone

Step 1: Pop off the top part of the ornament that holds the hook.

Step 2: Glue the ornament “stem” onto your cardboard cone starting with the bottom row first.

Tip: Construct the cones on a table so the flat, hard surface will hold the ornaments in place while they dry. After doing the first bottom row, I place the next row of ornaments in-between the bottom ones, so they hold the one above in place. It helps instead of holding each one in place until it dries!

Adding white and gold garland to gold ornament centerpiece

Step 3: Once the ornaments are in place and the glue has dried, “thread” the garland in-between the ornaments. I folded the garland over to make a little “pom” on top of the cone as the topper.

For the small-cone version, I used two 15 ct. ornament tubes and 1 garland strand. For the large-cone version, I used three 12 ct. ornament tubes and 1 garland strand. It only took me about 30 minutes to make the small cone and about 45 minutes for the large one. I also tried making a large cone with the smaller ornaments but that took almost an hour!

That’s it! If I can do it, anyone can!

Yule want to leave this decor up through the New Year! ✨
