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.
That’s it! So easy, right?!
- 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.
- Remove the top/hanger of your bulb and squeeze the stem into your bulb. Replace the top and marvel at your creation.
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!
