DIY Snow OrnamentsNovember 25, 2013 | FILED UNDER: Holiday Crafts, Christmas
Bring a little “fresh fallen snow” indoors this season with these super simple DIY snow ornaments! As much as I hate to admit it, I was excited for the 40 degree temps and rain we got in San Antonio this past weekend. It finally started to put me in the holiday spirit – we bought a new (9 foot!!) tree and started to do some decorating around the house. Since it is likely to be our first winter without snow, I want to recreate a snowy Christmas indoors for my girls. I’ve been playing around with some different snowy crafts. First up are these simple ornaments!

This is a great craft for little kids – my 4 and 2 year old girls actually made all of these. Here’s what you need:
Supplies for Snow Ornaments
- Twinkle Fluff Iridescent (polyester snow with iridescent strands) or regular polyester fill will work too.
- Clear plastic ornaments
That’s it! It takes a matter of seconds to fill the ornaments with snow. Both my girls had fun with this task.
All you need is to take a handful of fake snow and stuff it into the top of the ornament, then replace the top. Try to leave some room around the snow for the light to filter through. The snow I found had some iridescent strands which look pretty glimmering in the light. If you used basic polyester fill you could sprinkle in a little silver or white glitter to give it some sparkle.
