Turn extra large Christmas ornaments into unique floral table decor! You can arrange several of these pieces in a row to make an eye catching centerpiece.

This versatile home decor item is so easy to make that you will have several completed in no time at all.
Supplies Used to Make Ornament Floral Centerpieces:
- Large Round Ornaments (dollar store)
- Small round mirrors
- Wire cutters
- Flowers and greenery
- E-6000 Adhesive
Step one: Choose large, plastic ornaments. I found all of these at the dollar store. Pull the string to remove the tip at the top of the ornament. You can discard this piece.
Step two: Use wire cutters to snip off the plastic piece at the top of the ornament.
Step three: Use an electric drill to widen and smooth out the hole at the top of the ornament. Work slowly and carefully to drill into the ornament. The ornaments I purchased are thick plastic so there was no worry of shattering. Do not try this with glass ornaments!
Step four: Glue the ornaments onto the mirrors. I use E-6000 to attach them, but I also add a dab of hot glue to hold the items in place while the glue dries.
Step five: After the glue has dried, use wire cutters to snip branches off the floral stems. Arrange the stems inside the ornaments as desired. I used both flowers and berry branches to add height and variety to each arrangement.
Because these ornaments are sealed, you could add water to them and use real flowers! They would make one of a kind vases for your next party or event! Have fun crafting and creating holiday decor for your Christmas party this year!
