Hi everyone!!! My name is Cheryl and when I am not in the kitchen baking or running around with my camera you can find me over in my little corner of the universe at TidyMom.net where I share my favorite recipes, household tips tips, crafts and even a little photography……..a place for everything.
I was just thrilled when Kelly, Cindy and Rachel asked me to participate in the Holiday Bake, Craft and Sew Along again this year! I knew JUST what I wanted to share.
Snow Filled Monogram Ornaments
We made these Snow Filled ornaments two years and enjoyed them so much, they were first on our list again last year! This is a GREAT last min gift idea, because you can seriously make one in under 5 mins. Super easy and fun for kids to make for teacher, friends or one for their own tree!
- 1 clear glass ball ornament
- Epsom salt (you can buy this at any drug store, super store or even the dollar store)
- Vinyl initial
- Removed hanger from ornament
- Fill ornament 1/2 full with snow “Epsom salt”
- replace hanger
- add vinyl letter (you can buy vinyl letter at the craft supply store, or cut them with your craft cutter)
- add ribbon bow around hanger.
They even look nice with out the vinyl……….
What a great gift for anyone, but especially for those who don’t have snow!
For another great hand made gift idea, make these easy sugar scrubs, they can have all the glamour of a luxurious spa gift. They’ll never guess how easy they were to make!
