Easy Dollar Store Clear Ball Scarf Ornaments

I love the dollar store!
The one in the town where we do a lot of our shopping has aisles and aisles of great Christmas stuff. I could have spent the entire day there just imagining a million projects.

But Mother Nature finally gave us some half decent weather to put some outside lights on the house so we wanted to get home. Yay!

I did grab a few of these clear plastic ornaments with this pretty raised snowy white swirly design.

In a house of four cats, where one of them is a mischievous Miss Pixie, plastic is a very good idea. Though I have to admit she does make a pretty cute ornament herself.

When I saw these I immediately thought of filling them with the hot pink scarf from my stash of crafting scarves..

It is Think Pink Monday after all.

I cut the fluffy knitted hot pink scarf into three pieces about 20″ long each. I usually pick my crafting scarves up at thrift stores for 50 cents or $1.

There’s only two here because I stuffed one of the balls before I thought of taking a pic. I got a little ahead of myself.

Filling these ornaments is a piece of cake. They have a large 1″ hole for the cap, which is perfect.

Just remove the cap and start stuffing the scarf in using a pencil.

The scarf used has to be one of those loosely knitted super light silky & fluffy scarves.

Even when it looks full… just keep on stuffing.

The 20″ scarf pieces filled these balls, which are 3″ across, perfectly

Easy peasy!

The swirly design is really pretty against the hot pink…

and the texture is sooo fun.

Any colour scarf would look fabulous in these balls…  blue, silver, purple, green, red, gold, black…even white work work if the colour of the pattern on the balls was a different colour.

Whatever your Christmas heart and decor desires really, and they can easily be changed from year to year by simply removing the scarves and changing to another colour.

I can’t wait to get my hot pink ones on my master bedroom Christmas tree, which will be making an appearance on a future Think Pink Monday.

Thanks so much for reading and until next time… Think Pink!
