O’ Christmas Tree! Part III – Oversized DIY Ornaments

After the ribbon and floral picks, I start placing my large size ornaments throughout the tree.

I love to use large glass ornaments, but every year I have lost more and more of my beautiful glass ornaments due to breakage. Only the glass ones seem to ever fall off the tree! So this year I am using my glass ornaments on more level surfaces only. As a substitute I am using these large plastic ornaments I bought for $0.79 for a pack of three at last year’s Hobby Lobby’s after Christmas clearance.

I bought 5 packs of these and I have decorated them in different ways. I have spray painted some, embossed some, glittered some and beaded some. It was fun trying to come up with different ways to decorate them.

I also used four of these oversized crosses that I purchased at Garden Ridge’s after Christmas clearance a few years ago. I liked these so much that I went to every Garden Ridge that was within a reasonable driving distance to find more of these, but I could only find four.

I know you are probably saying to yourself that I should really stop now - add a topper and call it done. Not yet! Next – Bling Bling!

It's beautiful already, but I can't wait to see more. I love the embossed ornament. I can't wait to put me tree up, but mine wont be as fancy as yours.

This is really pretty.
I think it looks great, but it's your tree. Pile it high if you want! =0))
