Welcome to the Handmade Ornament Parade, a month long procession packed with all the homemade ornament inspiration you'll need to make for one happy holiday season. Today, Craft Snob presents Katy of Sweet Verbena. Thank you, Katy!
Hello there! I'm Katy from Sweet Verbena. I'm a college student and a lover of all things crafty. I'm excited to share my handmade ornament with you today!
I went to Hobby Lobby somewhat aimlessly, not sure of what kind of ornament I would make. When I saw these styrofoam ball filled plastic ornaments, I knew immediately.
I'm working on my elementary education degree right now, so that I can go on to teach. I guess you could say my inner teacher came out on this project. What a perfect Christmas kid's craft this would be.
If you can't find these pre-filled ornaments like I found (at Hobby Lobby), you could surely buy the supplies separately.
I divided my christmas trinkets into 4 groups…
and dropped each group into a separate ornament. Color coding the ornaments, and a list of the items made it easier to keep track of what was inside.
I transferred the list to the computer and printed it out on to card-stock.
Pretty simple huh?
Kids will love searching for little treasures in the "snow". If it's too difficult, try emptying out some of the styrofoam balls.
Don't forget to stop by my blog and say hi! Hope your holiday season is full of cheer and love.
