One of our favorite affiliate partners is Dollar Tree! Who doesn't love to go to Dollar Tree and find cute little things for decorating, baby showers and weddings, all for just a dollar?
Well, now that the holidays are upon us,Dollar Tree has you everything you need to make special, personalized Christmas ornaments. I was looking at their online site and in the toy section and I was inspired to make some ornaments and/or package tie-ons for my family's Christmas packages this year! We decided it would be great to make a video showing just how I made them. They are easy and super cute. Here are a few photos of what I started with. Clicking the pictures will take you to the link. Remember, if you want to buy in bulk, you can have your order shipped for free to the store nearest you.
Now, here is the video showing you what I did with them. I hope you enjoy it and please like our YouTube Channel when you get the chance!
Here is a list of other products, besides the figurines, that I purchased from Dollar Tree to make these ornaments:
Of course, I also used a glue gun, a little paint, and other supplies I have in my stash. For example, I had little wooden snowflakes already, but if you don't have any, Dollar Tree does have some little cute, stick on snowflakes or Christmas stickers that you could substitute that would work great! Just look around the store or online site and you are bound to find just what you need to personalize your ornaments.
Here is kind of a funny personal story. I told my son that I was teaming up with Dollar Tree and making Ornaments out of toys. He looked at me with skepticism, but when I pulled out the Polar Bear ornament and showed it to him, his eyes got wide and he said, "Oh wow! I want that one!" Then I pulled out the reindeer and he said, "Wait, I want that one, or Spencer does (my grandson)." Soon, he had decided which ornaments should be for himself, his wife and son. I call that a stamp of approval! I have to say that the polar bear is my personal favorite! I'll end with a few more photos of the finished products. I hope that you enjoy them and head over to Dollar Tree and give them a try yourself. Or, if you have a lot of ornaments to make, order online! These would be great at a Christmas Craft sale! Have Fun!
