How to Make Mini Christmas Wreath Ornaments

How to make mini Christmas wreaths with pipe cleaners and shower curtain rings from Dollar Tree
These mini Christmas wreath ornaments are made with pipe cleaners, shower curtain rings and other items you can pick up at Dollar Tree (if you don't already have them at home!). They make a great Christmas ornament or cute mini wreath adornment for Christmas gifts. 

They're super budget friendly and for $4 (or less!) you can make about a dozen mini Christmas wreath ornaments to hang on your tree or to adorn all your gifts. It's the perfect craft to do in front of the TV as you are winding down at night.


  • Shower curtain rings
  • Shiny pipe cleaners
  • Faux greenery
  • Ribbon bows
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon for hanging
All of my supplies came from Dollar Tree (although I guess I did have my Dollar Tree shower curtain rings on hand already since I'd been using them in my bathroom for a couple years before they became mini Christmas wreaths)

How to Make Mini Christmas Wreath Ornaments

To make them, I just wrapped the green pipe cleaners around the shower curtain rings until the ring is covered. Next, I added embellishments like the glitter berries and ribbon bows with hot glue.

Tie a ribbon for hanging and you're done!

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