I found clear ornaments at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago and had so many ideas how to fill them! I finally settled on making a DIY snow globe. I found cute little bottle brush trees at Michael’s for 60% off so naturally I bought them in every color and size. I don’t foresee getting snow in south Texas anytime soon, so this snow globe is as close as we are going to get to winter. This ornament took all of 5 minutes to make and was a pretty and elegant addition to our Christmas tree.
Clear Ornament (with a large opening!)
Step 1: Ensure that your bottle brush tree will fit through the opening on your ornament.
Step 2: Apply hot glue to the bottom of the bottle brush tree. I used hot glue since it dries so quickly!
Step 3: While the glue is hot, drop through the opening in the top of the ornament.
Step 4: After the tree is adhered, pour in the fake snow!

I think I see the outline of Santa Claus in the penultimate picture!
You make it look so easy. How do you get the tree in there and hold it still until the hot glue dries? Do you think you could get three trees in one ornament?

I put the glue on the bottom of the tree then dropped it in. You’d need long tweezers if you wanted to do more than one so you could position it! Maybe there are special tools for those “ship in a bottle” toys!
