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.
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:
