diy christmas filler ornament

oh my!
i do not know why christmas seems to be closer this year in coming since we had turkey day earlier, you'd think i wouldn't be so panicked but i am.

i'm so panicked i forgot i made a bunch of christmas crafts even before turkey day that i need to share with you. 
like this 
diy christmas filler ornament!
this ornament is bigger than the size of a baseball 
so you can put a really cute scene in it.

i found the huge ornament at michael's.
but i think the hardest part was 
figuring out what to put in it.
i was crazy trying all kinds of things but they were either too tall or too wide or too this or too that i was going nutty.

but then i happen to fall on 2 different things to put in it and didn't even realize they were both meant to be.

the supplies you'll need are small ornaments or figurines, hot glue, snow fluff, and anything else you want to include, including styrofoam balls, pom poms, or whatever in the pic above that i didn't even end up using. lol

i got the house and the truck from good ole hobby lobby for 40% off each.

anyway, the first step is to put hot glue at the bottom of each half as shown. be sure you are holding the ornament straight up with the hole pointing to the sky as shown.
next put pieces of snow fluff on the hot glue and 
fluff it up to make a small pile. 

do the same thing to the other half.

you'll want some of the fluff to hang out 
over the edges as shown.
then hot glue the house on one ornament half and the truck on the other ornament half.

i also added a small tree i got from target's dollar spot that i hot glued next to the house.

next, i added some glitter snow flakes and put the halves together to make a whole.

then i hot glued the bottom edge only to prevent the ornament from opening up and also leaving the rest of the edges clean of ugly hot glue marks. 
you can see that when the halves meet, the fluff fluffs up more! yay :)
so there you have a christmas house complete 
with a holiday truck and gosh golly 
it's so holly jolly!
who'da thunk you could use 2 things 
to make a christmas winter scene?!?
so now i gotta check out the other crafts
 i made so i can make more posts and 
save this christmas panic i have for 
the fact that i haven't really started buying gifts yet.

hey isn't halloween over? :>P


  1. I've seen those huge ornaments but never considered doing anything with them. Leave it to the Queen of Crafts to inspire me! This is a wonderful idea to use with my great-grands! Thanks girl!! Dona
