Hello friends! I know it’s only October, but when I noticed the clear bulbs at the Dollar Tree this year I knew I needed to act fast! These sell out quickly and last year I missed em. For that reason I’m bringing you these DIY Dollar Tree Christmas ornaments.
I got the idea for these ornaments from my Rae Dunn inspired Fall dishes. I’ve also seen Rae Dunn inspired ornaments made with Cricut machines, but I don’t have one. (Although it is on my Christmas wishlist!)

Painting the Ornaments
Using some leftover spray paint, I spray painted the clear Christmas ornaments.
The easiest way I’ve found to paint these is to screw off the metal top and lay them down on their tops.
It’s a good idea to wipe the ornaments down with a tack cloth before painting. This will get off every speck of dust so the paint is smooth and even.
Spray in light, thin coats. Don’t get in a hurry to cover in once coat or you’ll end up with paint drip or bubbling paint.
Adding the Letters to the Ornament
While the paint was drying I cut out the letters from the sheet of stickers. I’d recommend cutting them out closer to the edge of the letter than I did. This will make the sticker less noticeable on the ornament!
Putting Together the Words
Now it’s time to play scrabble! I put together different letters to make “Christmasy” words.
Feel free to get creative! You can trim down a letter if the letter you need isn’t included. For example I trimmed the “E” to make a “F.”
Peel off the back of the sticker and press it on the ornament. Smooth out any bumps and you’re good to go!
I cut the plaid scarf into strips.
Then I used a little twine to tie a bow on the ornament.
I used the plaid as the hook for the bow and tied it on top.
Wasn’t that easy? There is so many word combinations with just one sheet of letters!
Pin this project for later or share with a friend! Here’s a handy graphic.
