Make an ornament centerpiece using dollar store items.
Another option is to use one at each place setting to add some holiday cheer. You could even use these floral ornament pieces as place card holders!
This versatile home decor item is so easy to make that you will have several completed in no time at all.
Ornament Centerpiece Supplies
- Large Round Ornaments (these are from Dollar Tree)
- Small round mirrors
- Wire cutters
- Flowers and greenery
- E-6000 Adhesive
Choose large, plastic ornaments. I found all of these at the dollar store. Pull the string to remove the tip at the top of the ornament. You can discard this piece.
Use wire cutters to snip off the plastic piece at the top of the ornament.
Use an electric drill to widen and smooth out the hole at the top of the ornament. Work slowly and carefully to drill into the ornament. The ornaments I purchased are thick plastic so there was no worry of shattering. Do not try this with glass ornaments!
Glue the ornaments onto the mirrors. I use E-6000 to attach them, but I also add a dab of hot glue to hold the items in place while the glue dries.
After the glue has dried, use wire cutters to snip branches off the floral stems. Arrange the stems inside the ornaments as desired. I used both flowers and berry branches to add height and variety to each arrangement.
Because these ornaments are sealed, you could add water to them and use real flowers! Just be sure to glue them to a base so they can’t tip over and spill.
These ornament decor pieces would make one-of-a-kind vases for your next party or event! Have fun crafting and creating holiday decor for your Christmas party this year!
