I love making Christmas Ornaments. So much that sometimes I worry that one year I'm going to run out of room on my tree to hang them up! This ornament was super easy to make and used materials from the dollar store so it's super affordable, too!
- Mini Bucket (I got a pack of two at Dollar Tree in the wedding section)
- Small styrofoam ball
- Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
- 1/2" White Pom-Poms (I used 5)
- Thin red ribbon
- Ultra Fine Point Permanent Markers
Step 1: Write on the bucket
I wrote "Let it Snow" in a dot style alphabet with the marker.
Step 2: Cut the styrofoam ball in half
Rub the two sides together to remove the crumbly edges. Insert half of the ball into the bucket, curved side down.
Step 3: Add snowballs
Squeeze a generous amount of glue onto the styrofoam. Add 4 pom poms to fill the space at the top of the bucket. Add glue to the bottom of one more pom pom and add it to the top.
Step 4: Make a ribbon hanger
Cut a length of the thin ribbon and tie it onto the handle to create a way to hang the ornament.
That's it! It was super easy and I think it's pretty cute. These would be a great craft to make with kids (maybe a class project?) that looks great when done.
