Pick Up Some Big Christmas Ornaments Now!

4 Materials
20 Minutes

Head out and buy those Christmas ornaments right now for these fun Halloween decorations. You are probably thinking, what am I talking about? Crazy woman here, right? I learned my lesson last year when I was trying to get those big oversized ornaments for my Christmas ornament topiaries .

We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
What you'll need for this project:
Guess what, these jumbo ornaments disappear really early.  They disappear even faster if you are looking for these in Halloween colors, like black or orange or purple.  Get out and get those ornaments now and while you are out, pick up some fun Halloween picks or glittery spiders and Halloween ribbons.
I picked up these small circles of Styrofoam.  I didn’t use these on all of my ornaments, but on some of them.
Put the Styrofoam over the top of your ornament and press it down so you have an idea of where you will want to make a hole in the Styrofoam.  Using scissors or a screwdriver make a hole all the way through the styrofoam.
Tie some fun Halloween ribbons to the top of your ornament.  Tie one long one you will use to suspend your ornament from.
Feed the hanging ribbon through the hole and push the Styrofoam down onto the top of your ornament.  
Now to the fun part!  Get out your Halloween picks, cut them apart and start making a little arrangement on top of your ornament.  
Tie a fluffy two ribbon bow and attach it to the top of your foam circle, pulling the hanging ribbon around the sides of the bow so you can still hang it.
Continue to add Halloween trim until the foam is completely hidden and you have a fun Halloween decoration to display!  
I used all kinds of different Halloween decorations to make these! The great thing is that you can get as creative as you want with these ornaments!  Have fun making your Halloween hanging ornaments! You can see more of the DIY on these fun ornaments at Celebrate and Decorate!

    Do you have problems with the hot glue keeping the pieces together?

    I love this idea! Do you use just regular spray paint? And, what do you use for the hangers???
    Thank you

      I think she was confused by Halloween sprays. She maybe thought spray paint.
