Decorating the Christmas tree is probably my favorite part of Christmas! I love looking through the ornaments we’ve collected over the years and reminiscing about memories of past Christmases. Handmade ornaments are my favorite; we have some that my brother and I made when we were young, and we even have some that my parents made when they were young! So every year I make a few new handmade ornaments, because in my opinion, they are the best!
This miniature snowy tree snow globe is probably the simplest DIY Christmas ornament I’ve ever made! It only took me about five minutes, and I just love how it turned out!
DIY Miniature Snow Globe Christmas Ornament
Here’s what you need to make your own snow globe ornament:
- empty glass ball Christmas ornament
- miniature sisal tree
- hot glue gun
- fake snow
- skinny ribbon
Start by taking the top off of a glass ball ornament. Grab a mini tree and make sure the base of it will fit in the opening of the ornament.
Place a small dab of hot glue on the bottom of the base of the tree, put the tree into the ornament, and press the base of the tree onto the bottom of the ornament. If you’re using a small glass ball ornament like I was, you’ll need to grab the top of the tree with tweezers and use those to guide the tree into the ornament, because your fingers won’t fit!
Once the hot glue is dry (after about 30 seconds), pour a teaspoon or two of fake snow into the ornament to cover up the base of the tree.
Put the top back on the ornament, tie a ribbon through it, and it’s ready to hang on your Christmas tree!
