My Dollar Store Christmas Ornament Topiaries

I wanted to make some fun topiaries using Christmas ornaments so I gathered up some supplies from the dollar store and walmart and got started.

I purchased 6 larger sized plastic ornaments at Dollar Tree, and then I also bought

2 foam cubes, 2 small metal buckets, 2 5/16" dowel rods, wood caps, and a bag of decorative moss all from the craft section at Walmart.

I started by drilling holes through the top and bottom and each of the ornaments using my drill and a 5/16" bit. This was a little bit tricky but I managed to get it done. I did have to waller the holes a little bit since my bit was the same size as the dowel rods so that they would be able to fit through the holes.


After I had the holes done, I did a quick dry fit to see where I needed to cut my dowel rods because they were longer than I needed for my project. Then I took them outside and used my jigsaw to cut them down to the length that I needed.


I also planned to use 2 of the wood caps and gave them a quick coat of silver spray paint while I was outdoors.

Then it was time to assemble my topiaries.


I placed the foam cube inside the metal bucket, then added the dowel rod to the center.


Next I placed the ornaments that I wanted to use onto the dowel rod and finished it off with the wood cap.


Then I added some decorative moss to cover the foam, and added a fun buffalo check bow to each one. I think they are a fun addition to my Christmas decor.
