DIY Ornaments: Winter Wonderland

I found the inspiration for this ornament on Pinterest….of course! I made a dozen of these adorable ornaments to give out as christmas gifts. I tied a white ribbon in the loop for ¬†hanging the ornament and bought little Chinese take-out boxes to wrap them up in.



  • mini christmas trees (Michael’s sells these in packs of 12 for around $3)
  • “make your own” glass ornaments (make sure the opening is large enough for the base of the tree)
  • hot glue
  • tweezers
  • salt
  • glitter (I used Martha Stewart glitter in Snow)


Step one:

  • add glue to the base of the tree
  • use your fingers and the tweezers to place the tree inside the ornament
  • hold the tree in place with the tweezers to let the glue set

step 1

Step two:

  • using a funnel pour in the salt and glitter
  • put the ornament top back on

And you’re done!
