Easy, inexpensive crafts are my jam. But I’m picky when it comes to what I’m making. I may want my crafts to be easy to make and not cost a ton of money but I don’t want them to look cheap or fall apart. In truth, I’m pretty picky when it comes to the crafts I make. Having had my own tiny craft biz for a couple of years and selling goods at craft fairs/shows I had to be picky about what I put out.
With that being said, I’m usually my own worst critic. I hold myself to a certain standard and if I’m not happy with something I make I won’t share it. So know that each craft I share on the blog is something I would feel comfortable selling or displaying in my own home. And that’s why I’m excited to share a tutorial on how to make a Snow Globe Ornament.
I filmed this tutorial last year and ran out of time to make a blog post but I’m happy to say that I’ve now finished up a full post for you to follow so that you can make your own ornament.
Here are the supplies you’ll need to make your Snow Globe Ornament:
- Plastic jar ornament
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Mini bottle brush/sisal trees (2″-3″)
- Buffalo snow or any loose snow
- Small prescription bottle lid
- *Optional: Garland, ribbon, lace, twine, string and rub-on transfers for embellishment
Unscrew the lid to your ornament. Glue the prescription bottle lid to the inside of the ornament lid. Make sure it’s centered and that the outer writing side is up. This will act as a stand to bump up our trees.
Glue two or three trees onto the top of the prescription bottle lid.
Glue some snow onto the exposed prescription lid to hide any writing being careful not to burn yourself.
Now pour a small amount of snow into the empty ornament. Place the lid on the ornament. You’ll have to carefully shimmy the trees through the opening. Once you have the trees through and lid attached turn the ornament around and give it a shake to get the snow to settle around the trees. If you have too much snow, unscrew the lid and dump some out then reattach. If the ornament needs more snow follow the same directions but add snow instead and then reattach the lid.
When you’re happy with how the ornament looks you can apply garland or lace around the bottom. You can also change out the string that the ornament hangs from. I used a rub-on transfer on the front of one of my ornaments and it looks adorable. And now your ornament is ready to display!
Stand back and take in the beauty of your new creation. It’s such an easy and inexpensive craft to keep or give as a gift. If you’ve enjoyed making this craft check out my festive fabric candy canes.
