DIY Snow Globe Ornaments


Cute handmade ornaments

I love making crafts during the holiday season, and I find that handmade crafts make for the perfect holiday gift. Every year, I make ornaments with my children so that they can give them to their grandparents as Christmas gifts. Since I make the ornaments with my children – it has to be simple craft.

I got inspired to get crafty this week and get started working on this year’s ornaments from my favorite Snowman, Holiday Hal, who has been sharing some creative holiday crafting tips on the Voya Financial Facebook page where I normally get tips/tools to help us plan for retirement.I figured that if a snowman can find time to do holiday crafts then so can I.

Holiday Hal got me thinking a lot about snow and inspired me to make these simple DIY snow globe ornaments with my children. I was even able to find mini snowman buttons so that I could make a ‘Holiday Hal’ snow globe ornament. The ornaments are super simple to make, and my children were able to do every step of the craft with supervision from me.

2. Have your children put different buttons into the jars. We did one with mini gingerbread men, another with mini ornaments, and then the melted snowman snow globe.
3. Put the lid on the jar and then create a hook for the christmas tree with the flexible metal wire.
4. Add a ribbon for decoration.
5. Viola ~ your craft is done!

  1. Love this diy project, easy to do and thrifty

  2. Really cute and pretty. I tried to get the open front globes at Michaels but they were sold out. I never got the hang of using chopsticks so don’t know if I’ll try these. tfs

  3. What a brilliant idea so easy and simple. This one I will be doing for my grandkids. Thank you for sharing. Have a great day…

  4. Great idea! Our family is doing a ornament exchange and you’ve helped me out on that!! ♡
