When I saw these adorable Paw Patrol figurines at Dollar Tree, I knew I could use them to make cute and cheap holiday ornaments for my granddaughter.
There was only one problem.
The clear plastic ornaments that I planned to use, opened right down the middle so I knew it would be a bit of a pain to create any type of holiday scene inside.
To solve this problem, I decided to create something I could attach the figurines too. I measured the diameter of the ornaments and then cut out a circular paper template.
Next, I used that template to cut out three circles from white cardstock. Why three? Because that’s how many hanging holiday ornaments I planned on making.
If you watch the video, you can see why these paper templates are needed. They make things so much easier!
No job’s too big
No pup’s too small!
PAW Patrol, we’re on a roll!
So here we go
Note: We used plastic ornaments to keep this kid-friendly.
- 3 clear fillable plastic ornaments (80 mm)
- five Paw Patrol figurines from Dollar Tree
- faux snow
- super glue
- tacky glue
- felt scraps
- plastic snowglobe
- white cardstock
- red ribbon (or color of your choosing)
- small bottlebrush trees and figurines (bought mine at Dollar Tree)
Approximate cost per ornament: $2.50

A few tips:
Super glue is the best choice for attaching the figurines and trees to the paper because it dries quickly. Tacky glue works best for the snow on the paper.
If your bottlebrush trees are too tall to fit in the ornament, you can use scissors and cut the bottom off to make them fit. How cool is that?! 😉
Make sure the glue is totally dry before inserting into the ornament.
Use twine and the loop on the ornaments to create the hanging part.
Optional: Use small ribbon to make bows and secure to the front with a drop of glue. I like the festive touch the ribbon adds. What do you think?
If you’d like to give one of your figurines a festive scarf like I gave Marshall in the snowglobe, use a scrap of felt or fabric.
