It seems like I’ve been making a lot of ‘Snow Globe’ ornaments lately (in fact, the Cardinal Snow Globe ornament above is our upcoming December ornament kit), and so today, I’m rounding up a few ideas (new and old!) for you…. I hope these give you some inspiration for your own ornaments.
The Snow Globes are so fun because they let you showcase something on each side, like an event, date, birthday…. anything that’s special to you.
I personalized these ornaments for a 1st birthday, with the name embroidered on the front, and birthday on the back…. so cute! (Here’s a post that shows how I do the embroidery part.)
Here is another embroidered ornament… this time for a Baby’s First Christmas. I actually made this one a few years back for a friend, and I used colors to match his crib bedding. Another idea is to use the actual bedding itself, once it’s outgrown! Such a beautiful way to hold on to the memory, and be reminded each year…. rather than holding onto it in storage, where it will rarely be looked at again!
But, embroidery isn’t the only thing you can showcase. How about cross-stitching?
And of course, you can center a fabric picture (or even your own photos, printed onto fabric) on your ornament. A few weeks ago, I shared a picture of the USMC ornament I’d done. Here is the US Navy version (don’t worry… Air Force & Army to come, too!):
And a couple for Fall & Christmas. :)
(Fun Fact: I made the Snowman ornament above years and years ago, and he was actually one of the reasons I began calling these “Snow Globe” ornaments. :) )
