How to Make Recycled Christmas Wreath Ornaments

This post has been updated with directions since the original directions I linked to are no longer on the web. This post was brought to you by Dollar Tree.

I showed you yesterday how I redid my combo guest and kid bathroom. One of the things we did was took down the shower curtain bar and replaced it with sliding glass shower doors. That left me with a pile of shower curtain rings and no shower curtain to hang. I saved them because I was sure I could do something with them - and then when I saw this project from Dollar Tree's Value Seekers Club I was so glad I had!


  • Shower curtain rings
  • Shiny pipe cleaners
  • Faux greenery
  • Ribbon bows
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon for hanging

All of my supplies came from Dollar Tree (even the shower curtain rings - as that's where I bought them the first time!).

To make them, I just wrapped the green pipe cleaners around the shower curtain rings and then added embellishments like the glitter berries and ribbon bows. Tie a ribbon for hanging and you're done!

These make great ornaments for the tree or as embellishments on gifts.
