Large Dollar Tree Ornaments
I love the tree I created in my family room this year. In fact, this room has been the best looking it ever been at Christmas time. I upgraded the tree to a 7.5-foot tree from Walmart to replace the 6 foot flocked tree.
When it came time to choose the colors and ornaments for this tree I decided to keep it very bright in all the bright colors with a bit of nostalgia look.
I came across these Large Dollar Tree Ornaments and knew they just needed a makeover to go along perfectly with my tree.
I absolutely love the way they turned out and how they look on my tree. I will most likely make more of these next year and improve my process.

I recently shared my process for making Large Dollar Tree Ornaments on my Facebook page where I go live showing new craft ideas. If you don’t follow me there, I’d love to have you over there in our community. I am also sharing new craft ideas.
Below is the video I created showing my process
How to Make Large Ornaments
Once you have all the materials you will need to set up an area to create. The dining room table or your craft table is a great place. I made this in front of my Dreambox cabinet as it has all my supplies within the craft storage cabinet at an arms reach.
You can also check out my Dreambox Setup in this video to see how I have it set up!I absolutely love the Dreambox setup.It really makes crafting so much more fun!
When you purchase the craft kit from the shop it will come carefully packaged in a box including the materials you will need to make the project. (Simple materials such as paints paintbrushes, pliers, and glue/glue guns are not typically not included).
- Large Ornaments from Dollar Tree or craft store
- Scrapbook papers
Making Large Ornament Decor
I purchased several of these large wooden ornaments from the Dollar Tree. I decided to get two gingerbread men, and transform one of them into a gingerbread girl to make a pair or a set. And I absolutely loved the large ornament shape.
Dollar Tree carries several of these ornaments every year in all sizes and shapes. They also come out in waves, at least in my store, so when you see it, get it because most likely it won’t be there at your next visit.
Another tip is that these are not just for Christmas, they have them for every holiday. In fact, you can probably find a few shapes and cut-outs week to week that differ from another year-round.
Once you decide on the ornaments you want for your tree, (I went with three) you will want to get busy making them over.
I chose to paint, and then create outfits from ribbons and scrap fabric for the gingerbread man and girl.
For the large ornament, I embellished it with scrapbook paper, wood letters, and beads.
I absolutely love the way these turned out.
Here’s a look at how they turned out close up on my tree. I placed them towards the bottom to give the tree a weighed look, but you could easily do these cascading down the tree from the top. I did this in the lower portion only of my tree.
Like I mentioned before, I do plan to add to this next year, and maybe even add to it.
I love the way large ornament pieces stand out as their own focal on a tree. What do you think??
Would create this and use it on your tree?
