Snow Globe Christmas Ornament

It’s day five of my 12 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments series.  Today, I’m sharing this snow globe Christmas ornament that I originally shared on Or So She Says…  Doesn’t it just make you want to light a fire, snuggle up, and listen to Christmas carols? Also make sure to take a look at all of my other homemade Christmas ornament tutorials!

I made it using a clear plastic ball ornament that I found at Hobby Lobby. Unlike a regular ball ornament, this one splits in half so you can fit bigger things inside of it. So many possibilities! The little house ornament and the fake snow came from Michael’s.

First I cut the string off the house ornament and jazzed it up by gluing some of the “snow” onto the roof. I was tempted to add a little person or something to the inside of the house, but I was going for sophisticated. Next time. 🙂

I needed some way to attach the flat surface of the house to the rounded surface of the ornament. I had some sparkly pipe cleaner, so I curled that up to make a base. Just hot glue that down on the bottom of half of the ornament.

Next, hot glue the front half of the house to the top of the pipe cleaner, and put some fake snow in the other half of the ornament.

Glue the ball back together to prevent any glitter accidents. Seriously, this stuff is all over my house! I suggest NOT using a glue gun to glue the ball together. It dried too fast, and then I ended up with this.

Oh well, nothing a pretty bow couldn’t fix. You didn’t even notice in the top picture, right? Get ribbon with wire in it if you want it to hold it’s shape.

Shake the snow around a bit to get it under the house and evenly dispersed, and you are done!
