DIY Botanical Ornaments

It’s FINALLY that time of the year. I don’t know about you but as soon as November 1st hit, I was in Christmas mode. I’m not so patiently trying to convince my husband to get the Christmas decorations out of the attic so I can go crazy. Until then, I wanted to get started on making some creative ornaments for the tree. I had these bulbs left over from a DIY project I did last year so I wanted to figure out a new and inexpensive project to do this year. I love greenery and Scandinavian design so when I saw this greenery at Target, the wheels started turning. This was one of the easiest projects and cost less than $10 to make. Want to know how to make your own? Step by step instructions below!


  • Clear Ornaments like these. You can buy these from Amazon or most craft stores. I got these from Michael’s and they came in a variety of sizes.
  • Faux Foliage (or real!) I bought mine at Target from Bullseye’s Playground for a $1 per pack but you could also get these at your local craft store.
  • Scissors

That’s it! So easy, right?!


  1. Open your greenery and separate it into smaller pieces that will fit inside your bulbs. I was able to easily do this with some by pulling them off the stem. For the bigger ones, I cut them in half.
  2. Remove the top/hanger of your bulb and squeeze the stem into your bulb. Replace the top and marvel at your creation.
  3. Repeat.

This project couldn’t be any easier. Plus, it will make a big impact, especially if you have a flocked tree. I love the natural element to it. You could also get creative and throw these into a bowl on your table for a fun centerpiece. The possibilities are really endless!

Let me know if you try this! I’d love to see how yours turn out. Feel free to tag me on Instagram and I will repost my favorites on my story. Happy Crafting!
