Christmas Ornament Tree Tutorial


I know, there have been a lot of craft tutorials lately, but hey, I'm in a crafty mood lately. Hopefully you all aren't sick of them yet. This one was inspired by a decoration that I found for sale online. It was a porch decoration, but I made mine smaller for inside. You could use larger ornaments to place them outdoors too though, the instructions would be the same. The cost? $4 each with materials from the Dollar Tree. Obviously, if you have spare ornaments and candle holders around the house, this could be a free DIY project.

Materials:


3 Large round ornaments
3 Medium sized ornaments
3 Smaller ornaments
Candle Holder
Spray Paint (optional)
Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: 

Spray paint a glass candle holder with metallic paint. You can skip this step if you already have a metal holder you want to use or you want it to remain plain glass.

Step 2:

 Hot glue the largest ornament to the top of the candle holder. Be sure to center the bulb on the holder.

Step 3: 


Remove the hardware for hanging the medium sized ornament and hot glue it to the large bulb you just placed on the candle holder.

Step 4:


Remove the hardware and hot glue the last ornament on top of the other two that are already on the holder. I decided to add a bow to the top of mine, but you can use a pointed ornament for the top of just leave it as it is.

* Just a tip, be sure to center the ornaments as you place them one on top of another and use plenty of hot glue so they don't come loose.

  5. I would love to even use this on the Christmas Tree itself but without the candle stand of course. I think the look of a few of these scattered around would be a great length contrast next to regular single ornaments
