DIY Christmas Ornament Blog Hop

Hello again friends!  This season has been so fun for me, having the chance to join up with so many talented bloggers to share our ideas to help make your holiday season easier.  I really hope you are getting the most out of all of these posts!  I know I’m always inspired by everyone involved, so I suspect you are too. 🙂

This time I’ve joined 16 other ladies to share some really great DIY Christmas Ornament ideas with you all over the next couple of days!  Be sure to check for the links to each at the bottom of this page.

Since I’m doing my best to create a winter wonderland in a land that hardly knows winter (Texas) I chose to make myself a little snow scene inside of an ornament.

Here’s what you’ll need to create your own:

I found most of my supplies at Michael’s but they are not available to purchase on their website.  I have linked you to similar items, but you can find them in stores if you visit soon.

Plastic Craft Ornament (One that comes in two pieces you put together.)

Mini Bottle Brush Trees

Fake Snow

Gorilla Glue

1 Bag of Pinecones-Mini Ornaments

Okay, so this is super simple to do!  All you have to do is dab some glue onto the base of the mini tree and hold it against the inside of one side of the plastic ornament.  Next fill that side with a small amount of fake snow and a few pinecones and close it up with the second half of the ornament.  That’s it!


So simple, and so pretty, and I love how well it fits into the rest of the ornaments on my tree. (I’ll be sharing that with you all very soon so be on the lookout!)

    Very cute and perfect for my tree. I love how easy these are- I will add them to my list of things to do this year.

      Thank you so much friend! I was hoping it wasn’t too simple for people to care about it. I made another one for the tree and added glitter. Should have done that the first time! LOL!

      Thank you Kim! Yeah, TX is a crazy state. I mean I probably would prefer to not have to shovel or drive in snow, since we had a similar experience in Iowa while visiting with my mom and I wasn’t a fan, but still a bit here and there would be nice, right? LOL! I’m in SA and all we get are flurries in the Hill Country, and ice on the roads here in town.

      I saw them and immediatly knew I wanted to do this project with them. I have a few little ones left that I need to figure out what to do with. Maybe a forest? 🙂

      Karen, that’s one of the best compliments ever! To even think you thought about me at all is so humbling. Thank you friend! 🙂

      Thank you Linda! My house is covered with “snow” inside, which I’m starting to think might be as hard to manage as real snow. LOL! I’ve swept and vacuumed about 10 times in the last five days. Haha!

      Thank you Cat! I thought they were cute last year and had a few displayed but when I saw these in the package at Michael’s I just had to get them for this project. So cute!!!

      Thank you so much friend! It’s been fun changing things up for Christmas. I’m starting to see it all come together, and I though it’s a bit different than I had planned it’s most certainly from the heart. Sometimes you just have to follow your gut right? I can’t wait to share!

      Thank you both for inviting me to join in on the fun! I’m in love with y’all’s ornament, and I’m sure we will be seeing it recreated all over very soon. 🙂
