With the holiday season approaching so fast, we can’t delay any Christmas decorations, and with so many easy and interesting ideas out there, we can’t always use the same decorations and ornaments as the previous year! So, to shake things up on the most expected holiday of the year here is a list of the most incredible and gorgeous ornaments that you can make yourself and that will transform the look of your Christmas tree!
Vintage Car Snow Globe
This incredible snow globe is all you’ll want for your Christmas tree! Doesn’t it look amazing? To make it, you’ll need:
- A 1/64 car (you can easily find in local toys store or Amazon),
- A small bottle brush tree (cut off the base with a wire cutter)
- Faux snow;
- And a large clear plastic fillable ornament.
After tying the tree on the roof of the car using baker’s twine, place the piece inside one-half of the plastic ornament, add the faux snow and attach the other half of the ornament, closing it. Add a piece of baker’s twine on the top of the ornament and you’re ready to hang it on the tree!
