DIY Dollar Store Christmas Ornaments
Make sentimental Christmas tree ornaments with supplies you can find from the Dollar Store
Who doesn’t love a trip to the dollar store?
I certainly love any store I can walk through and not check the price tags of the things I’m putting in the cart (yes this is the only place I can do that).
This is such a simple DIY Christmas ornament and I know you are going to love these ornaments as much as I do!
Our Christmas tree needed a little extra something, a personal touch.
I have been seeing people decorating for the holidays using sheet music for years now and I always love how simple and elegant it looks.
That’s why I thought making some beautiful hymnal ornaments would be just what our Christmas tree needed.
The best part is that they are really cheap to make and you could use any sheet music you want to make them custom to your families interests.

DIY Christmas Ornament Supplies:
- Clear Ornaments (they can be old or new or plastic or glass)
- Hymnal Book or Music Sheet
- Modge Podge
- Paint Brush
Start by picking out your favorite Christmas time Hymnals, sheet music, or pages of a Christmas story.
I had a bunch of old hymnal books, so I cut pages out of one of those, but you could also print off your sheet music.
It will take an entire hymnal sheet per ornament plus a few extra scrap pieces you can rip down.
The trick is to not worry about the placement too much, you don’t want it smooth and it would be impossible to make it that way.
In fact I think the layered, uneven look adds even more character to the Christmas ornament.
You can also apply Mod Podge on top of the sheet music to smooth any seams, it will dry clear.
These DIY Christmas ornaments only took a couple of hours to dry before they were ready to hang.
You can use pretty ribbon, twine, or a plastic ornament hanger to hang your new Christmas ornaments.

That’s it the easiest and most budget friendly way to add sentimental Christmas ornaments to your tree.
This is also a great way to make use of old Christmas ornaments that aren’t your style anymore.
I would prime them though first if they are a really bold color so that you can’t see it through the sheet music.
If you have enough Christmas ornaments on your tree, these would look stunning in a glass bowl as a table centerpiece.
