Hello makers! We are down to 5 more days until Thanksgiving and 5 more weekends until Christmas! This year is flying by… I wish I could slow time down a bit or press the pause button. Since I can’t, I decided to make Christmas last as long as possible (aka: decorate early) and get as many Thanksgivings in as we can (we have 3 scheduled with family and friends). I just love this time of year and this season of motherhood. Christmas is still magical and I’m hoping that lasts a while longer. So we put up the tree and my daughter happily helped me decorate it. We even made these fun Snow Globe Ornaments (last year…oops!) and they are some of my favorite ornaments to hang up. I love crafting with my girl!
These ornaments were so easy and fun to make… do you want to make some too? First you’ll need to gather up your supplies. I bought all of mine at Michael’s.
- plastic ornaments that open
- mini trees
- plastic baby deer
- faux snow
- hot glue and gun
- super glue
To make these, just open your plastic ornaments and hot glue a tree or two and maybe a deer to the bottom of one half of the ornament. I also like glue the tiny contents to each other as well… so I glued the trees together that were touching and I glued the deer to the trees as well.
Add some faux snow and close up the ornament with the other half. Put tiny dots of super glue around the opening of the ornament to secure it (this step is optional). Loop twine through the top of the ornament to easily hang it from the tree. I even added a jute bow the the top with some hot glue.
See! Easy and they are SO cute. I love them on my flocked Christmas tree. But it’s hard to get a good photo of them without catching my reflection!
What do you think friends? Would you hang some of these Snow Globe Ornaments on your tree?
