This beautiful snow globe ornament is the perfect way to spruce up your holiday decor. They are so much fun to make and look amazing.
The holidays are here! And for me, that means all things D-I-Y. I just love decorating our home with homemade decorations, creating personalized gifts and just being elbow deep in glitter glue. Though this is a busy time of year, I wanted to create this post and show you how to make these beautiful snow globe ornaments.
These snow globe ornaments look beautiful anywhere they are hung. I’ve made several of them and put them on our Christmas tree, on the mailbox, taped one to a tin of cookies for the neighbor. The possibilities are endless! I just love how they give off a wonderful Christmas vibe.
You can customize the ribbon for the bows as well as the string that allows the ornament to hang. I used a ribbon with more of a country feel and some twine to top it off. Sorta gives these beautiful snow globe ornaments a wonderful farmhouse look.
Pictured below are the items I used to create the snow globe ornaments – all of which I found at Joann’s. They have a huge selection of craft supplies and I was able to one-stop shop at Joann to get everything on my holiday crafting shopping list.
The only thing not pictured was the twine I used to make a loop around the top of the ornament as that was a last minute decision.
- E6000 glue
- Fab lab lightbulb shaped ornament
- Maker’s holiday ribbon
- Maker’s holiday mini trees
- White glitter
- Tweezers (optional)
To begin, remove the metal ring from around your ornament and set to the side. Drop a few drops of glue directly inside the center so that the glue lands in the very bottom of the ornament.
Remove the plastic base that the mini tree is attached to. Grab the top of the tree with tweezers and insert it into the opening of your ornament, sticking the base of the tree into the glue to secure it in place. Set upright to dry completely.
Once your glue has dried, fill the bottom of your ornament with the white glitter. You want just enough glitter to cover the base of the tree so the wire doesn’t show. Because the opening of the ornaments isn’t very big, the glitter goes in easier if you create a paper funnel and put the glitter in that way. Whatever works for you.
Once you have the desired amount of glitter in your ornament, put a thin strip of glue around the top edge and place the metal ring back on the bulb. Since the top of the metal ring isn’t sealed, be sure not to tip it upside down.
Make the bow of choice with your ribbon and secure it to one side of the metal ring with glue.
Tie a loop of twine to the top of your ornament so you are able to hang it. And viola! You are done.
Hang your beautiful snow globe ornament for all to see or give as a gift.
The possibilities of making snow globe ornaments are endless. It would be fun to put little pictures of your kids or grandkids inside and make it look like they are playing in the snow.
