Like so many of you, I like to make ornaments each year not only for my Christmas Tree, but also to give as gifts. I usually attach an ornament to a present that I am gifting.

I will share some ideas with you at the end of this post in case you want to duplicate these. You will also find tons of great Christmas decorating ideas from some super talented bloggers.

A big thank you to Remodelaholic for hosting this blog hop. There is an awesome youtube video playlist attached as well. Let me show you how easy this snow globe was to make with just a few supplies.

Snow Globe Christmas Ornament Supplies

Snow Globe

  • Dollar Store Clear Plastic Ornament – they have some this year that aren’t round, but more of a mason jar shape. That gives a cloche effect.
  • Deer Figurine
  • Bottle Brush Tree
  • Twine
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Moss
  • Small Wood Slice

All the supplies except the wood slice were found at the Dollar Store. But I went back a week later and couldn’t find any more deer figurines, so definitely grab them while you can!


Remove the gray cover on the ornament.  Add a small amount of hot glue and attach moss to cover the inside of the base. A trick I learned years ago while making snow globes, is to hot glue the figurine and Christmas tree directly to the cover, so it won’t move out of place. 

Then it’s just a matter of hot glueing the ornament to the wood base. I also added moss all the way around the outside of the ornament as well.

I was going for a woodland themed snow globe for a more rustic look. This goes with my Christmas decor, but you can use whatever colors you like.

If you don’t want the woodland look you can add epsom salt for a classic snow globe look and use a pink bottle brush tree. The options are endless!

Twine Top

The hanger was a silver plastic and I didn’t like the look, so I just wrapped twine around it with a dab of hot glue. Again, this goes with the woodland look.

This is such a pretty ornament and took about 15 minutes to make. Plus it cost about $5, but I bet these would easily be twice that in the store.

One of the reasons I like to share my crafts with you is to inspire you to make your own while still staying on a budget.
