Magic Snow Globe Ornaments

21 Aug

20992829_10214172424048255_1162762613862058965_nRemember these snow globe Christmas ornaments from back in the day? I thought it would be fun to revisit them with a slightly more fabulous feel. I swapped out the traditional Christmas themes with some magical inspiration, traded the stuffing beads for sequins and jazzed up the bases with some glitter fabric. I love the way these turned out simple, sweet and full of magic. There is enough space on the base of the ornament to add year or a name to personalize the gift. If you decide to take on this idea this year please share pics I would love to see!

TEMPLATE (at the end of this post)

Cardboard Cone Shape

Felt Glue

2 –  9″ x 12″ sheets or 1/4 yard White Felt

8″ x 3″ Bright Blue Felt like Slushie

Sequins in:

Mermaid

I used one bag but it was a close one so I’d recommend two of your chosen color for safetys sake.

Cut  1 felt snowflake from blue felt , 2 background pieces from white.

Cutting the felt snowflake out is the hardest part of this process and will require some patience.

You can try tracing the snowflake outline onto you felt and apply the sequins directly but it will be much harder to keep the lines straight.

For tips on cutting small or detailed shapes see: Cutting Detailed Shapes

or try Andie’s Method 

To cut centers from felt mark out the area to be cut out lightly in pencil and fold over to create an open space, work scissors around slowly until you have completely cut away the unwanted area.
