In my most recent video tutorial, I’ve shared a step by step process on how you can create beautiful, handmade ornaments for Christmas. Not only are these snow globe inspired ornaments handmade, but they are so unique, and something anyone at any level can sit down and make. In my video I walk you through 3 snow glow ornaments, including an easy, lone snowy tree, a wintery lamppost with bushes, and for the more adventurous crafter, a small forest in the snowy mountains. The great thing about this tutorial, is that so many of the materials overlap, you can try your hand at one or all of these looks very easily. Or, if you are having a get together with friends or family and want something fun to do (without breaking the bank) this project will work great. Your local craft store should have the basic elements you need, but for easy reference, here are some of the materials you will need:
- Clear plastic ornaments (Large and X-large)
- Clear/Transparent chunky glitter (often in the kids craft section)
- Mini Trees – I found some in both the holiday section, and the mini train supply section
- Lamp Post Mini – in the Christmas section with other minis
- Brown Paint – optional for the bottom (to hide the bottom of the trees/lamp post), but absolutely needed for the mountains.
- Skewers – to help get the trees into the perfect spot
- E600 Glue – I feel more comfortable with this (even though it smells) because you have more time to adjust the trees as they dry
Here’s a sneak peak at what they each look like:
