Make the spirit of Christmas last longer than a December snow storm with these grosgrain snow globe ornaments.
What 'cha need:
- glass ornaments, available at any old craft store (mine are about 8.5" around)
- grosgrain ribbon, with appropriate sentiment/design, 1/2" wide or less (calculate about 9" per globe) I used ribbon in my stash, but a quick search of the internets turned up this one, this one, this one and this one, all of which could work well.
- embellishing glue, I used Aleene's Jewel It
- faux snow
- paper towel and Scotch-Brite pad
Pop the hanger part off the globe. Apply a strip of glue to the back of the ribbon, and glue the ribbon into place at the center of the glass ball. You'll want to pull the ribbon slightly as you apply it, which will make it form-fit to the ball's roundness, if that makes sense.
Don't worry if the glue scooshes out the sides of the ribbon. A damp paper towel will get it off. For any remaining glue, let the ribbon set up for a few minutes and then rub the glue spots with a damp Scotch-Brite. It'll come right off.
At this point, we could be done as the globes look pretty cute as is, but I did mention snow, so we're going to stuff some inside the ornaments. I'd suggest putting your bag of faux snow inside another larger bag and then stuff the globes in that bag as the flakes are really clingy and they get everywhere.
I chose to fill mine just up to the ribbon, which I think looks nice. After that, just re-insert the top holder bit and add a hanger of your choosing.
