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!
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!
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!
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! ✨
