Holiday Ornaments from Table Scatter
by Michelle Sybert, Muffin Tin Mom
During the Holidays, our local dollar store is aflutter with treasures that make my heart skip a creative beat. On a recent trip, I was able to score some fantastic glittered table scatter for only $1 per packet. The kids made these simple Christmas ornaments using the table scatter. I was amazed at how easy this simple Christmas ornament craft turned out.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Holiday Table Scatter from The Dollar Tree ($1)
- Scissor, Glue, Hole Punch (on hand)
- Cardstock (on hand or .59 at your local craft store)
- Ribbon (on hand or $1 at the Dollar Store)
1. Using scissors, cut out a circle “ring” from cardstock. Cut out the center, leaving about 1 inch width as shown below.
2. Glue the individual pieces of table scatter onto the the paper ring.
3. Punch a hole in the cardstock, thread a length of ribbon through and tie it off, creating that hanging ornament.
Hang on your tree and enjoy!
Optional: Cut out a favorite photo to place behind the ornament and create a photo ornament keepsake!
