Jaime here today from That’s My Letter and it’s officially holiday prep time! Today I’m sharing a DIY snow globe ornament with a wood base that makes a perfect gift for anyone big or small.
This snow globe ornament is constructed on a wood base where all the interior pieces can be glued to the base and then the clear globe is placed over the scene. The globe is plastic and the entire ornament is very lightweight so it won’t weigh down your tree branches!
You can put nearly anything inside the snow globe as long as it fits under the dome. I used bottle brush trees, wire candy canes and a wood dowel sign with the family name printed on cardstock. Add a little faux snow and you have the cutest little winter scene.
The faux snow will cover any unsightly hot glue and adds just that tiny bit of sparkle.
Add a small wood ball on top to compliment the wood base with a string for hanging and you have a keepsake ornament that will look beautiful on or off the tree.
