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!
