  • Clear ornaments
  • Assorted fake flowers and leaves
  • Decorative container filler (red beads)
  • Ribbon
  • Fake snow (snow flurries)
  • Glitter glue (or normal glue)
  • Funnel
  • Hot glue gun
  • Paper plate
  • Scissors


  1. Remove the cap from a clear glass ornament and set it aside for now
  2. Use a funnel (or create one from rolling a paper) and start to pour the fake snow inside of the glass ornament (this can get very messy so be careful!)
  3. Dump some of the beads or filler on to a paper plate along with some of the fake snow
  4. Roll 4 beads in glue, and place 4 directly in the ornament
  5. Roll the sticky beads in filler snow to get a frosty effect
  6. Put the remaining 4 beads inside the ornament
  7. Line the rim of the glass ornament with hot glue, then carefully put the metal cap back on before the glue dries
  8. Cut a few leaves or flowers from your assortment that you like and hot glue them near the cap of the ornament
  9. Cut a piece of ribbon and loop it through the hook in the cap of the ornament to create something for it to hang on
  10. Enjoy your holiday ornament!
