When I received my exchange partner Bobbie St. Clair at From This To That, I couldn’t wait to see if she was a vintage loving girl like me.  Well she is, so I pondered what to do.  Do I buy and ornament or make one?  

I decided to make a waterless snow globe.

Completed Ornament3

Here’s how I did it:

Ornament Supplies

Supply List:

  • Small Glass Jar (jelly jar from Fortnum and Mason)
  • Gold spray paint (on hand from another project)
  • Mini bottle brush trees (Hobby Lobby)
  • Small reindeer figure (Hobby Lobby)
  • Snow (on hand from last Christmas)
  • Santa bell (Hobby Lobby)
  • Hammer 
  • Small nail

Spray Paint & top

Directions

  1. Spray paint top of jar gold set aside to dry
  2. Glue the reindeer to the bottom of the jar 
  3. Glue the bottle brush trees to the bottom of the jar
  4. Sprinkle in some snow flakes 
  5. Place a dot of glue on the back of the jar
  6. Starting at the dot of glue wrapping red and white twine around jar top
  7. Place another dot of glue in back to secure the twine when finished wrapping
  8. Tie on the Santa bell
  9. Use the hammer and small nail to make two small holes in jar top
  10. Thread twine through the holes and tie inside the jar lid to make a hanger
  11. Put the top on the jar and done

Making this ornament was quick and easy.  My favorite kind of project.  I’m going to make a few more for the booth.

Santa Bell

 Now I’m hoping that Bobbie St. Clair likes it.

Don’t forget to come back here on November 14th to share your Christmas ornament tutorials or shopping adventure and to see all the ornaments in the 2015 Ornament Exchange link party.

Always,

Sharon

  4. I love snow globes of any kind. I have a unique one up my sleeve, now if I could just get it done in time before the Christmas season is over lol I’m sure your exchange partner will love it! I’m obsessed with deer, the one you found is SO cute! Maybe I can get one for my snow globe too! xoKathleen
