Snowflake Ornaments

I love Christmas trees. The lights. The colors. The smell. The ornaments! Choosing the right ornaments for your tree is a must if you're looking for a matching decor in your home. A lovely Christmas tree isn't necessarily an expensive project. I like to see it as the perfect opportunity to get creative and see what happens.

These days I've been working on something special for our tree. Something that matches my pine cone wreath. So we're talking silver and red. Aren't they yummy colors for Xmas?

Making these ornaments for your own tree is as simple as 1, 2, 3. Ready to learn how?

1. Get the basic ornament at your craft store.
There are generally different options for you to choose.
Mine were 1 dollar each.

2. Paint the ornament (your choice of color).
I chose silver.

3. Spread glue and glitter.
Glitter should be the same color as the paint.


I'll admit it. There's a step 4.

4. Hang it and enjoy!

P.S. This is an excellent DIY project to make with kids: it's both easy and fun, a perfect way to get them involved with the holiday decorations.
Hope you have a great day making them with your family!

Great idea and I can do it with the kids. I don't do crafts for Christmas, but if it's this simple, I can handle.

Thanks for the follow! Following you back. :)

OMG that is so awesome. I have seen those at my Dollar store but I never would have had the vision.

P.S. Do you know you have word verification on? Just thought you might not know.
