Dollar Tree Christmas Ornaments from Wood Blocks

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I do a lot of really adult-level crafting. But sometimes the kiddo wants to get involved and make something with me. So we decided to make these simple Dollar Tree Christmas ornaments from wood blocks.

A super easy craft, I could have let the kiddo do it all on her own, even, but she wanted the “together time” so we crafted as a team. Between us, I think we made a dozen of these in about 30 minutes. So, grab a paintbrush and let’s get started.

Tips to Make This DIY Christmas Ornament

  • Don’t feel constrained by the words I chose to paint on the ornaments. I mean, anything works – the year, Santa, Joy, whatever.
  • If you can’t find the little blocks at your Dollar Tree (they’re in the kids/toys section), you can grab some here. They’re just little blocks, which you can easily cut from a 2×4 if you wanted to even.
  • As far as decorations, I found these adorable little bows with bells already on them, but you could use ribbon to make your own bows, add a tiny poinsettia flower, or anything – these would look adorable even without an embellishment.

A super fast project, making these Dollar Tree Christmas ornaments from wood blocks is a simple way to make a Christmas craft with the kiddo!

Active Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $5

Materials

  • Wood Block Game Set
  • 12 Pack of Mini Bows
  • Jute Cord/Twine
  • Green Acrylic Paint
  • Red Acrylic Paint
  • Black Acrylic Paint

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Wood Glue
  • Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks
  • Small foam paint brush (or any small paint brush you may have)
  • Small detail brush (for writing letters)

Instructions

  1. Using wood glue, affix 2 blocks together, side by side. Take care to press the wood blocks together firmly and wipe away excess glue with a paper towel. Allow the glue to set for 2-3 hours (it will fully cure in 24 hours, but should be solid enough to handle in just 2-3 hours).
  2. Using a foam brush, all sides of the joined blocks. We painted 6 blocks green and 6 red. Allow the paint to dry completely.
  3. Hot glue a contrasting bow to the top of each block set.
  4. Use a small detail brush with black paint to paint words such as “Joy”, “Noel”, “Love”, “Hope”, and “2020” on the bottom of each wood block ornament. Allow the paint to dry.
  5. Cut one 3-inch long piece of twine for each ornament.
  6. Hot glue both ends of the twine to the top of an ornament on the back side, creating a loop from the twine from which to hang your ornament. Allow the hot glue to dry completely then you're ready to hang your ornaments on the tree! photo collage tutorial of how to make dollar tree ornaments from jenga blocks
