DIY Snowglobe Ornament

I love adding a few handmade ornaments to the tree in addition to some classic ball ornaments. This year I chose to do a winter white neutral theme and got the idea to add a few snowglobe ornaments. These were so easy to make and you could fill with just about anything. I used some leftover bottle brush trees but I think pine cones would be really pretty too!

You will need:

Start by heating up your glue gun and unscrew the lid off the jar.

Once the hot glue gun is warmed up, add some glue to the bottom of your bottle brush tree and place standing up on the inside bottom lid of the jar.

It’s super easy to dry orange slices. I also do grapefruits too because I just love the color!

  2. Slice your oranges and grapefruits about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the citruses on the parchment paper.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 5-6 hours, flipping regularly so that each side is dried evenly.
