Here’s what you will need:

Directions to make DIY Snow Globe Ornaments

1. Begin by cutting your piece of vellum or plastic into a square or rectangle that is about the same width as the ornament. Vellum is a semi-translucent paper that can be found at most craft stores. If you can get your hands on some plastic sheets, that works great too! We actually used some leftover plastic that originally had stickers on them.

Now draw your picture with the black sharpie or use colored sharpies too!

2. Roll up the drawing and stick it through the opening in the top of the ornament.

3. As the plastic or vellum falls into the ornament, it should unroll and open up. If you need to, you can use a pencil to stick through the hole and adjust the paper as needed.
