Everyone loves the Dollar Spot at Target – how can you not. Some of us might love it too much (no comment). When I spotted green and hot pink beanies I knew they were destined for bigger things besides someone’s head. Yup, I cut those Dollar Spot beanies up and made them into DIY Christmas ornaments.
I could not be more excited with how these ornaments came out. When you decorate a purple tree you sometimes have to make your own matching Christmas ornaments. Sure, these beanies were cute as a hat but I’m here to tell you they are even cuter as DIY Christmas ornaments.

Supplies for DIY Beanie Ornaments
- Loose knit beanies
- Sparkly ornament
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
The thrift store is another great place to look for beanies. Old sweaters work great too!
Step 1 – Cut Up Beanies
Each beanie made about 3 ornaments. Cut up hats into sections large enough to wrap around ornaments. Use hot glue to attach.
Step 2 – Add Decorative Trim to Ornaments
Use decorative ribbon and trim to cover raw edges of ornaments. Attach with hot glue. I prefer the look of layers and more trim is always better.
Step 3 – Put a Pompom On It
Because everything is better with a pompom on it, including DIY beanie ornaments for your Christmas tree. Make your own pompom to match your tree or buy some readymade.
Step 4 – Cover Your Purple Christmas Tree With Your New DIY Ornaments
Stand back and bask in the colorful glory. That was easy wasn’t it? I told you so. Who knew a dumb hat could look so good as a DIY Christmas ornament. Never underestimate the power of the Dollar Spot.
Whatcha think? Would you hang these cuties on your Christmas tree? Remember the beanies you choose do not have to be in neon colors. It’s just a lot more fun if they are!
