Colorful DIY Dollar Spot Beanie Christmas Ornaments

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.

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.
