Every Christmas season Dollar Tree puts out LARGE Clear Plastic Ornaments. When I saw them this year, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. I am so excited to show you how I created these Rustic Brown Paper Ornaments. I hope you like them and will try to make some. Just another little note, you can use any color paper you want.
The Supplies I will be using are:
Large Clear Plastic Ornament (from Dollar Tree)
Brown packing Paper (from Dollar Tree)
Different kinds of ribbons
The first step in making this Ornament is carefully removing the top silver hanger from the ornament. The hanger is kinda flimsy so that is why you need to be careful.
Next you need your ornament, brown paper, Mod Podge and paint brush. To make the paper small enough to work with I ripped it into small pieces.
To adhere the paper to the ornament, I applied Mod Podge directly onto the ornament with a paint brush. Then I grabbed some brown paper and pressed it down into the Mod Podge. The paper will wrinkle as you apply it but that’s ok. I absolutely love the look it gives to the ornament. I also apply Mod Podge over the top of the paper after it is in place.
You just keep gluing and adding paper until the whole ornament is covered.
Now just set the ornament aside and let it completely dry.
While the ornament was drying, I made a Darling bow to put on the top of the ornament. I grabbed a bunch of different kinds of ribbons and cut them into 3 inch strips.
To make the bow I just layered the ribbons on top of each other in and X pattern.
To tie all of the ribbons together, I took a piece of jute string and tied a knot in the center of the ribbon. Make sure it is tied together nice and tight. Leave the string ends long so you can tie it to the ornament. The bow turns out super cute!
The last thing I did to the bow was hot glue a cute little button to the center.
Now it is time to put the ornament back together. I put the silver hanger back on top of the ornament.
I replaced the silver string with a piece of jute string to make it look more rustic.
Then I took the bow and tied it to the top of the silver hanger. And just like that, you are done.
Tell me what you think in the comments. I think It is absolutely adorable and only cost a little over a Dollar to make!!
