DIY North Pole Ornament

This post was originally posted on Tatertots and Jello as a part of the Happy Holiday series! I was THRILLED to be on one of my all time favorite crafting blogs, it was truly an honor!!






I am loving all the creativity I've seen lately turning clear ornaments into little works of art so I wanted to make several for our tree that's going up any day now!! After finding these mini snowmen ornaments I just knew that they needed a home at the North pole, so I made them one.



Supplies:

Clear plastic ornament
Poly-Fill stuffing beads
Red stripe straw
North Pole Flag (printable link below)
Mini snowman ornament
Tape
Fishing line (optional)



Directions:

  • Fill your ornament about a third of the way with Poly-fill beads
  • Optional step - change out your snowman's string for fishing line
  • Squeeze your snowman into the ornament but don't let go of the string/fishing line!!
  • Lift your snowman so he's just sitting on top of the Ploy-Fill and tape the string/fishing line to the lip of the ornament opening
  • Cut straw to length of the ornament and tape North Pole banner a third of the way down
  • Insert straw into ornament and replace the cap



You can right click to save the north pole file and then print & cut the flags apart.


These cute ornaments are so easy and quick to make you can easily make an entire family of snow-people for your tree or to give to others.


 Thank you again to Jen at Tatertots & Jello for having me guest post in her Happy Holidays series! I hope you enjoy making these ornaments as much as I have!!
