We all love to make creative, crafty, one of a kind DIY Christmas decorations for our house, right? But let’s face it, those craft store receipt totals get larger every year! So we have a list of dollar store items that are our go-to’s for crafting, and one of those great deals are dollar store ornaments. Ornaments are so easy to decorate with, adding color, sparkle and holiday happiness for just a few dollars. (Especially from the dollar store!) If you don’t find ones that fit your theme at the dollar store, remember most of the major craft stores have 50% off sales on ornaments starting in early November. (Which makes them almost as cheap!) Here are some of our favorite tutorial picks for DIY Christmas decorations, ornaments & crafts using dollar store ornaments!



Christmas Decorations from the Dollar Tree

Dollar Store Christmas Tree Craft

Hunny I’m Home‘ used dollar store ornaments and scrap wood to create this Christmas sign craft! Easy, and cost her only $4 to make! Are we still lovin’ on rose gold? Yep. Yes we are.


Dollar Tree Christmas Ornament Tags

These monogrammed DIY gift tags are a simple project, with an elegant twist. Instead of just using a paint pen to draw on the monogram, ‘Sugar & Cloth‘ shows us how to use a gold leafing sheet. This DIY Christmas ornament craft created a high end look, with a low end budget!


Ornament Advent Calendar

This DIY dollar store Christmas craft turned advent calendar from ‘Classy Clutter‘ is simple and colorful, fun and fancy all at the same time! BTW, you can even get the clothespins and the glitter at the dollar store too!


Ornament Chandelier DIY Holiday Craft

Ok, this one is our favs! This ornament chandelier idea from ‘Vera Bradley’ is such a sophisticated DIY Christmas ornament craft project, but so simple! You could obviously do this with more traditional colors, or a multi mix of hues.


Dollar Tree Ornament Garland DIY

From ‘Tori Spelling‘, craft this pretty DIY dollar store Christmas ornament garland and use it over your fireplace or hanging in front of a picture window. Again, you could make this DIY Christmas craft in any color.


Dollar Store Ornament Wreaths

A straw wreath, some cheap ornaments and a glue gun make this absolutely stunning Christmas ornament craft! From ‘The Happier Homemaker‘, this pretty dollar store wreath idea is  the perfect way to welcome holiday visitors to your front door. And it’s easy!


Jessica at ‘Four Generations, One Roof‘ shows us how to make a Christmas wreath using dollar store ornaments.  (Or any affordable ornaments!) Love the color splash here! And I also love how she used it over her fireplace instead of the traditional front door wreath. What a happy holiday welcoming room!


Corey at ‘Hey There, Home‘ did her ornament wreath a little differently. She wired hers onto a wire base so it can withstand outdoor elements. The color scheme she chose may be my next holiday pick! Seriously, you can use dollar store ornaments for these DIY Christmas craft projects! Yay!


Tree Christmas Craft from the Dollar Tree

Ok, we absolutely love this silver and gold ornament tree from Maryann at ‘Domestically Speaking‘! This is one of those DIY dollar store Christmas craft ideas you would want to use year after year. Great step by step tutorial. You could use this holiday decoration anywhere from your front porch to your kitchen!

    I am coordination challenged but did manage to make a wreath for over my mantle- I plan to hang it on a mirror. Despite several dollars going into the swear jar and a few glue gun burns, I love it . I used 3 sizes for mine. Got the ornaments on their $1.00 a tube day. and they also had the form so it cost me about $6.00 – Ballard designs wanted $99 for theirs. This 70 year old klutz is stoked, planning to doe another project with the leftover ornaments. Thanks
