To make the ornaments, you just have to trace the cookie cutters into the paper and cut them out. Then, apply glue around the edge of the cookie cutter to glue the paper. Let it dry and attach a loop of cord to the back of the ornament. Let it fully fry and then hang them on your tree!
DIY Snow Globe
Making a DIY snow globe is a great way to start the holiday season. You will need a mason jar or cookie jar, cotton balls, a fine-tipped brush and white paint, and small trinkets, such as snowmen, mini-Christmas trees, reindeer, etc.
You want to start by painting small white dots on the outside of the jar to make the falling snow. You can also paint snowflakes. On the inside, you can use cotton balls to make the floor and place the trinkets to make a little Christmas scene. Alternatively, you can use snowball cookies instead of cotton balls for the floor and give the snow globe as a gift.
