Hi there See Vanessa Craft readers! I am so happy to be here today! My name is Kara and I am the creative mommy blogger behind Mine for the Making. I share tutorials, recipes, printables, frugal decor, mommy adventures, kid crafts, and all things DIY. And I am all about having a *handmade* holiday… whether it’s making handmade gifts for others or purchasing from handmade shop owners. So today I want to share a fun Christmas project that is super easy, inexpensive and would make a great gift this holiday season. How pretty is this Snowy Winter Handmade Ornament?!
Simple yet beautiful. This year my Christmas decor has white, silver and lots of rustic nature touches, so I decided to replace some of my ornaments with these guys. Want to make your own? They are EASY peasy!
- Clear plastic or glass ornaments
- Faux white snow
- Mini pinecones
- Fine silver glitter
- Yarn or ribbon
- Funnel (optional)
Are you ready for this…
Remove the top of your ornament and place the funnel in the top hole. Add faux snow and glitter. Remove the funnel and press your small pinecones into the hole. I added about 5. Put the top back on. Give it a gentle shake. Add ribbon or yarn to hand from the tree. DONE. And the kids can TOTALLY help on this one!
It’s so pretty on our tree! Since we don’t get snow where we live, we get our winter on with faux snow. *wink*
And this would make a great gift for teachers, coworkers, friends, neighbors… I LOVE getting pretty new ornaments for my tree don’t you?
Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit! I’d love for you to come by my blog to see more of my holiday projects.
Some of my favorite recent projects that I think you will love too are my Glitter Deer Wood Slice, Build a Snowman Printable Game, Oh Deer Chalkboard Printable (plus 2 others), and the DIY Rudolph Shirt I made with my daughter. I just LOVE this time of year.
Thanks to my sweet friend, Vanessa, for having me over!
