I haven't done anything original in awhile, so it's about time. I thought of doing something like this last year, but was too sick/busy finishing this to make it happen. So this year, when I saw these mini ornaments at Walmart, I decided it was time.
They were about $3.50 each. Not bad, but I'm going to check out the dollar store (that was my original plan, but by the time I got out last night, it was closed) next time. I started by hot gluing some ornaments in a ring about 6-7 inches in diameter. Then I just kept building up, ring on ring, leaving the middle empty so I could get maximum tree out of the ornaments I had.
