Do You Need: Last-Minute Filler Ornament Sources?

I don’t know about you, but it seems like every year, once the ornaments are up on my tree, I realize there are uneven spots and that I’m in desperate need of more ornaments! Fillers needed!

Typically I like my ornament fillers to be either a neutral gold/white/silver or outlandishly colorful, and either super inexpensive with maximum bang for my bulk or else ridiculously special and one-of-a-kind and completely outlandish. So, you know. I guess it depends on my mood.

After the jump, I’ve compiled a few of my go-to sources for last-minute Christmas tree ornaments that will fit almost any decor scheme, and will be either economical and efficient, or else completely gang busters and ridiculous. Sound like fun? Oh good.

  • Penmanship Gift Tags 4 of 15
    Penmanship Gift Tags
    One of my favorite budget tree tricks is to use really rad gift tags as ornaments. You'll usually get more tags in a pack than you do ornaments in a pack, plus they don't break, and they're typically much less expensive than ornaments (and cute cute cute). These are so good. My tree is over stocked but I'm still thinking I need these. Just in case. Right? Hmm.
