It’s a DIY Christmas with this easy Let It Snow Ornament! Each ornament is filled with sparkly snow and mini snow balls and sports a stamped tag with a cute bakers twine bow!
Hi fab friends! I’m Keri … it’s so nice to meet you! If we haven’t yet been introduced, I am a wife to my sweet hubby, momma to two boys (13 and 15), HR manager by day and girl behind the blog over at Shaken Together! Life is short and time spent with my family is sweet, so I love sharing easy recipes and simple crafts that won’t break the bank or take me away from my 3 guys for too long. I’ll be stopping by Fantabulosity each month to share something fun and fabulous … so let’s get started!
Let It Snow Ornament
I love handmade Christmas ornaments – there is just something about hanging those hand print reindeer and popsicle stick frames alongside with my rustic wooden nativity ornament and wood slice snowman. And this year, I’ll add a few Let It Snow ornaments to our tree … since that is the only snow we’ll ever get in Florida 🙂
- Plastic ornaments
- Winter Snow (*see notes below)
- Faux snow (*see notes below)
- White card stock
- Black ink pad and letter stamps
- Small hole punch
- Blue/white bakers twine
- Ribbon for hanging
*The Winter Snow is from FloraCraft – it is basically shredded foam that has a little sheen/sparkle. You should be able to find this or something similar at your local craft store. The Faux Snow (mini foam balls) was at my local dollar store.*
Cut a thin piece of white card stock and stamp “Let It Snow” on the tag. Use a small hole punch to add a small hole at the top of each tag.
Carefully remove ornament hanger and separate the metal hanger from the collar of the fastener and slide the tag onto the hanger.
While the ornament hanger is removed, fill each ornament about 1/3 – 1/2 full with the Winter Snow and Faux Snow. If you have a small funnel, that will help corral the snow as you fill the ornaments.
Replace the ornament hanger. Tie a bow with blue and white bakers twine around the ornament hanger. You can use a different color of twine to match your tree, but I love the blue, white and silver combo for these ornaments!
Finally, add a length of ribbon through the ornament hanger to hang the ornament. Easy right?
