Supplies Needed

  • White cardstock – you want a thicker paper to print the snow globe templates on
  • Coloring supplies – markers or colored pencils
  • Clear plastic ornament – you need the kind of ornament that opens into 2 pieces. It should also have a part at the top of the ornament you can hang string or ribbon on. The size we used was 80mm. It is important to get the right size so it fits the templates. You can find them here.
  • Fake Snow – this is snow filler used for Christmas decorations
  • Hot Glue – for gluing the clear plastic snow globe on (with adult assistance)
  • Snow Globe Templates – get the templates at the bottom of the post on the form with a preview of the template

3. Cut out the photo.

If you are creating the photo snow globe ornament, use one of the blank templates to cut out the circle from the snow globe. Then use this as a template to trace around your photo. Cut out the photo and glue it to the blank ornament template.

4. Add fake snow and sequins.

Add the fake snow and sequins to the middle of the snow globe before gluing the clear plastic ornament on.

You can also leave these as paper ornaments and hole punch the top and add some twine to them instead.

Have an adult help add hot glue around the edge of half of a clear plastic ornament and glue down to your snow globe.
