Ornaments to Honor the Military.


A couple of years back, I made this USMC ornament to honor my late husband, Jon, who was a Marine.

I was not expecting the response I got when I posted it on Facebook…. over 8,000 “likes” and counting! So awesome, thank you. :)

Under the bow, there are 2 little charms….. a yellow ribbon, and a star-shaped flag.

Semper Fi USMC Ornament

May, 2016 Update

Ever since last summer, I’ve been getting requests for a kit for this ornament, and the other military branches – but the problem is, the fabric has been out-of-print for a few years now, and it’s very hard to find.

So, guess what I’ve been doing for the last year? I’ve been collecting it from everywhere I could possibly find it. :)

In about 2 weeks, I will have 4 different “Military Snow Globe Series” kits (with eBook) available:

“Semper Fi” – USMC
“Honor, Courage, Commitment” – US Navy
“Integrity First” – US Air Force
“This We’ll Defend” – US Army

(If you’re interested in a kit to honor the Coast Guard, please know I have not forgotten you! I am still on the hunt for the perfect fabric for a Coast Guard ornament.)

I don’t know the exact day yet that these kits will be available, but…. they are on the way!

If you’re a do-it-yourself-er, these ornaments follow the Snow Globe Pattern, which you can get right HERE.

Here are the other branches:

US Navy Ornament


US Air Force Ornament

    Hi Staci I am writing because I would like to order a Navy ornament kit. I couldn’t find where I could do that. So if you could tell me how to go about ordering a kit I would appreciate it. I have been a loyal customer for sometime and really love your creativity. Your instructions are great. Easy for an senior citizen to follow. Love your things. Thank You Pat

      Hi Pat! I am soo happy to hear that you’ve enjoyed the ornament instructions!

      I am so sorry to say that I don’t have a kit available for the Navy ornament just YET, but I do plan to have them as soon as I have enough fabric available. It’s a retired pattern, so I’ve had some difficulty finding more of it. I did just manage to find a little bit of it recently on eBay, and I’m waiting for it to arrive. If I have enough, I will definitely make up some kits!

    Hi Staci, Where did you find the charms that you use on some of your ornaments.
    I especially liked the ones you used on the military ones.

    I made these last year for the veterans that are at a local nursing home. Each one had their military branch on them.
