Last year I was in the first year of my MBA program, so basically every type of crafting was put on hold. [Which is sort of like a DIY-ers torture.] Incidentally, we are heading into finally and I am dying for Christmas break!! Buuuuut the year before before school, when I ruled my life and not them, I made 5 or 6 different types of ornaments. Then, this year, I've done the same. Which means I'll be posting them all throughout this and next week!
I made these little snow ball ornaments with materials you probably have around the house. This would be a great project to do with elementary aged children. It's simple would be difficult to end up with something you wouldn't actually want on your tree, if you know what I mean.
- Elmer's Glue
- Silver or White Glitter
- Clear Glass Ornaments
- Paint the clear ornament with glue. I painted some ornaments all over and some only half of the way up.
- Pour Epsom Salts into a flat container or a plate, and sprinkle glitter into them.
- Roll the ornament in the mixture and until covered and dry upside down. Yup, it's that easy.
You can see how they look on our tree. I like how textural they are and the glitter adds some sparkle when they're in the tree. I do a mostly white tree, with just a few pops of blue and green. There's a chevron ornament I made two years ago, it was lightly inspired by Anthro's chevron ornament.
Lastly, you can see one here, on the table, laying next to the Snow Globe Ornament. This image was from Saturday's post about How to Display your Christmas Cards. I shared what we've been doing and it works great! I totally recommend it and everyone has ohh-ed and ahh-ed over it since we put it up. Are you ready for Christmas yet? I haven't even begun to shop- I refuse to freak out about it, but it's going to be a mad rush this weekend!
