I made this super cute ornament tree all for under $6!!
The key to making one of these cheap is Goodwill. Everything on the tree, with the exception of the cone keeping everything together was purchased at Goodwill!!! During the holidays, most Goodwills in my area have bags of vintage and newer ornaments for $1-$2 a piece!! Score!
I started with a cone from Hobby Lobby that was $3. I took off the hooks from each ornament and stuck the ornament into the cone halfway, then gave it a healthy dose of hot glue and pushed it in the rest of the way. You do have to be careful not to push too hard if you are using breakable ornaments, I did destroy a few. Once more, a reason to buy them at Goodwill. Be sure to start with your largest ornaments on the bottom.
As you work your way up the cone, use smaller ornaments. This is what I had after I put all my ornaments on.
As you can tell, I didn’t have any really small ornaments for the top. So, I improvised and wrapped tinsel around that section and throughout the tree, so that no ugly styrofoam green would show through.
I topped it off with a cute little vintage elf! I just love Christmas crafts!!
