Here's how to create a DIY Christmas Tree Ornament:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Christmas Tree, gather all supplies. Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. Line up three full clothespins on your work surface, to create a wedge shape. Attach the wooden clothespin pieces together with a glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo as a template.
Paint the front and all sides of the clothespins with Festive Green acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Basecoat the wooden stars with Mustard Seed Yellow acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Measure and cut three sections of gold tinsel chenille stems to become garland. Glue mini buttons on as ornaments. Attach both garland and buttons to the clothespin tree using MONO Multi Liquid Glue with a fine tip applicator. If you do not have a fine tip applicator, place liquid glue on a paper plate and apply with the tip of a toothpick. Secure the star to the top of the tree with a glue gun and glue sticks. If you don't have miniature buttons, use mini pom poms, sequins, or another item from your craft stash – get creative!
Basecoat a wooden craft stick with Light Cinnamon acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Secure the wooden craft stick to the back of the tree with a glue gun and glue sticks.
