Easy Dollarama Christmas Ornaments

Make changing up your Christmas decor a snap with these 8 easy Dollarama Christmas ornaments. Let’s get crafting!

#1 Beyond Adorable Snowmen Ornaments

Oh, my goodness these snowmen are beyond adorable. Even hubby had to admit that he found them to be super cute. Frosty ain’t got nothing on these guys!

Supplies You Will Need

  • Tinsel Snowmen
  • Mop Head
  • Cloth Strips
  • Twine
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Scissors

How To Make Beyond Adorable Snowmen Ornaments

  • Start by removing the tinsel from the snowmen. Put the buttons, eyes, and nose aside.
  • Take the mop head out of the packaging and pull the mop head strings out. This is really easy. All you need to do is start with just one string and tug. Once a few are loosened the rest come out in clumps.
  • These mop head strings are so plushy and soft and I love that they are so bright white.
  • Starting at the bottom edge of the snowman, hot glue the mop strings on to the frame. Wind the mop strings around and around, adding small dabs of hot glue as you go around.

NOTE: Make sure that you start applying the mop strings at the back of the snowman. You will need to know which side of the snowman is the front so that you can reapply the carrot nose.

PRO TIP: I earned this tip the hard way. Watch your finger when holding the snowmen and adding the hot glued strings.

If you would like to make an actual mini pompom for the hat start by:

Wrap the twine around 2 of your fingers several times.

Tie a small piece of twine around the center of the loop you formed.

Cut the end of the loops and spread out the strings to form a pompom.

  • Now start on the hat portion of the frame. Using twine do the the same as you did for the snowman’s body.
  • Use yarn, faux fur, mop head strings, or cloth strips to cover the trim portion of the hat.
  • Do the same for the pompom part.
  • Using a dollop of hot glue, affix each of the eyes and buttons to the front of the snowman.
  • Next, gently probe to find the hole for the carrot nose. If you want you can add a touch of hot glue.
  • Lastly, add the scarf. This can be made out of scrap materials, twine, or yarn.
  • Slip an ornament hook into the back of the snowman and hang it one your tree.

NOTE: Leave the trim part of the hat and the pompom part until last.

And there you have it. The most ridiculously adorable snowmen.

#2 Elegant Christmas Terrarium Ornaments

These ornaments are absolutely breath taking. They are so quick and easy to make. They cost around $4 each but the impact they make is beyond impressive. Best part, all the piece aren’t permanent so you can switch things up and reuse these gorgeous, glass holders in other DIY decor projects.

Supplies You Will Need

  • Gold Glass Hanging Terrarium
  • Epson Salt
  • Faux Greenery
  • Faux Poinsettias
  • Pinecones
  • Faux Berries
  • Metal Bells
  • Mini Ornament Balls

How To Make Elegant Christmas Terrarium Ornaments

  • Remove the Dollarama sticker from the bottom of each of the terrariums.
  • Each terrarium has an open back. Carefully pour in a bit of Epson salt to each. The salt is optional but it does at height and sparkle to the finished look.
  • Add in any of the embellishment pieces that you wish.
  • I decided to use Epson salt in some of the pieces but others were simply filled without the salt. Both looks are fabulous.

And Voila! Positively stunning Dollarama Christmas ornaments that look they you purchased them at Crate and Barrel or some other high end decor store. So simple and fast to make.

I am so excited to show these off this year!

PRO TIP: To hang these ornaments use extra strong ornament hooks or if yo are using an artificial tree, hang the ornaments directly on a branch. Remember, the further down the branch and towards the trunk you go the sturdier it will be.

#3 Rustic Twine Christmas Trees

I make a new one of these every year because I just can’t help myself. I am always amazed at how easily a tacky, tinsel Christmas tree can be transformed into such rustic, understated beauties.

Supplies You Will Need

  • Tinsel Christmas Tree
  • Twine
  • Mop Head
  • Mini Holiday Wood Cut Outs
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

How To Make Rustic Twine Christmas Trees

  • Remove the plastic star and snowflakes and place these aside. You can choose to use these later on or not.
  • Unravel the tinsel from the tree form. You won’t be needing it.
  • Using a piece of paper and pencil carefully trace out each of the 3 bottom sections of the tree. Trace these onto fabric and cut out. In the middle of each fabric piece, cut a slit half way in.
  • Hot glue each of the fabric pieces to the bottom of each section of the tree.
  • Hot glue the twine around the bottom edge to cover up the fabric edges.
  • Work you way around the tree edge adding dabs of hot glue as you go.
  • When you reach the part of the frame where there are separated slats just keep adding dabs of hot glue to each slat and then pressing the twine on to them.
  • When you reach the top of each section cut the twine and hot glue the ends down and start again on the next section. Do this until you reach the top of the tree.
  • When you are done wrapping up the tree, start wrapping around the tree base with the mop head strings. Or using Artminds Antique Wax, wrap the base in twine that has been stained with the wax. Again, start at the bottom and work your way up using dabs of hot glue.
  • Add the wooden snowflake cut outs with hot glue.

  • Cut the tea towel down so that it fits about an inch past the edges of the picture make sure that the yea towel is straight before replacing the backing and hanging them on the wall.
  • Simple, inexpensive but makes quite the statement.

OPTIONAL: Iron the tea towels first. I didn’t do this but with high site, I wish I had.
