DOLLAR TREE: Glitter reindeer head ornament plaque upcycle

A lot of the ‘same old’ Christmas stuff at Dollar Tree, but it is STILL worth a trip to check out the new stuff they have this year.  I found these glitter reindeer head ornaments:

They are really cute, except for the cheesy strip of greenery; but I figured that that would pull right off, which it did.  I was even able to pull the jingle bell off the greenery to save, before I tossed it.

But, as expected in doing so, it pulled off some of the glitter as well.  No biggie.  The glitter was worn off in a few other places when I bought them, so I was going to need to touch up the glitter anyhow.

I found this cute mini boxwood garland in the Target Dollar Spot.  It’s on a wire so could easily be formed into mini wreaths to put around the reindeer’s necks.

I also had a bunch of these little 5″X5″ wood frames, that I got at DT eons ago; patiently awaiting their destined craft project.  I cut out a piece of vintage sheet music and glued it to the glass, placed the wreath around the reindeer’s neck, and glued it to the sheet music.

But, of course, I can never leave well enough alone; so I rummaged through my supply bin and found some stick on felt words that I could put on a few of the plaques.  I made five in total; and put words on 3 of them because only three of the words were small enough to fit the frame.

What do you think?  Which do you like better; the one with the added word or the plain one?
