I’m excited to again be joining a group of super talented bloggers for My Dollar Store challenge – This month we’re sharing our ideas for DIY Christmas Ornaments, so be sure to scroll to the bottom for all of the Christmas inspiration you can handle.

 

DIY Christmas Ornaments - Honeycomb ornaments

There is something nostalgic and beautiful about hanging ornaments on the Christmas tree you’ve made yourself. Unlike the salt-dough or macaroni ornaments, I remember making as a kid, these Dollar Store DIY Christmas Ornaments,  with easy to make tassels and beads look as though they have intricate detailing but are a cinch to make (they take about 10 minutes each). They only require a few supplies you can pick up at Dollar Tree or likely already have, and need NO baking to impress!

 

HOW TO MAKE HONEYCOMB DIY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

YOU WILL NEED:

DIY Christmas Ornaments - Materials

Dollar Store Items:

  • Tissue paper
  • Pony beads
  • Ribbon/Bakers’ Twine/Yarn

Other Items:

  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Pattern

 

START WITH A DIY TASSEL

DIY Tassel- Finished

To make the ornament hanger and DIY Tassel, wind your twine or ribbon loosely around your middle three fingers about 15-20 times. Slide the loops off your fingers then cut away from the skein.

DIY Tassel - wrap around hand

Tie a second piece of string, about 12″ long,  through the wrapped ribbon or string and secure with a knot making the DIY ornament hanger.

Wrap the third piece of twine, about 5″ long, around the full bundle to create the DIY tassel head.

Cut through the loops, and trim to the desired length.

DIY Tassel-completed

String pony beads on top of the tassel. Put aside.

PREPARE THE TISSUE PAPER

DIY Christmas Ornaments - Stack Tissue Paper

Stack 4-pieces of tissue paper. If using multiple patterns, ensure each piece is the same side up. Fold the stack in half. Repeat until you have a rectangle approximately 6″x4″.

TRACE + CUT + FOLD 

Download and cut out the DIY Christmas ornaments pattern. Lay the straight edge of the pattern piece along the fold line of the rectangle. Trace the pattern. Using sharp scissors, cut the design from the tissue paper stack. DO NOT CUT THE FOLD.

DIY Christmas Ornament - Cut Pattern Out

Separate and count 18-pieces – Set the remainder aside for the second ornament. Fold the pieces in half, ensuring a deep crease.

GLUE INSIDE

Unfold each piece and lay it crease side down, placing a glue dot on the inside at the black marks shown on the pattern. Refold on the score line and gently press together. Repeat for remaining.

NOW THE OUTSIDE

Place a glue dot on the outside areas at the pink marks shown on the pattern, then immediately lay a second ornament piece on top, pressing gently. Repeat fusing all parts into one stack.

 

ADD THE TASSLE 

DIY Christmas Ornament - Glue into stack

Add a stream of glue down the center of the ornament. Lay the tassel down the center, placing the beads against the bottom of the ornament and begin to unfurl the ornament around the tassel. Tie a knot at the top of the tassel string, to create the hanging loop.

THE GRAND FINISH

Continue to unfurl the ornament until it wraps all the way around to form a circle, then add glue to the final layer at the pink dot areas outlined on the pattern. Press together.

YOU’RE DONE. 

I’ve seen these ornaments everywhere lately, and I love that to look at them, they seem so complicated when they are not.
