I Spy Ornament


I was lucky enough to get into Michaels the other day and get some clear plastic ornaments. I saw this idea on pinterest and I really wanted to make some as gifts. My inspiration came from A Diamond in the Stuff blog, although I wasn't able to find cute little figurines that fit into the top hole like she did :(. Oh well, I'm still happy with how they came out!


I used what was called vase filler (bead like pelts) from the dollar store as the 'snow' and I was able to find a little Christmas assortment pack with confetti and felt shapes to use as the hidden objects ( I also added a few other things). 

I didn't just want to write a list of items I wanted it to have a bit of a rhyme. 
This is what I came up with:

 
Set in a box and ready to give!

 

Hope all your Christmas crafts are coming together! I'm still finishing up on a couple myself!....and Thanks Courtney for the fab idea!

  4. LOVE this idea!!! We have a church function every year, called Festival of Tables, and again this year we have opened it up to our neighbors around the church. This would be fun for that table.....and for the ladies that come from the neighborhood. Thanks for the great idea! Laura

  9. I make these every year with a set of preschoolers. As a co-op I use a lot of donated or on sale items. I've used salt, sugar,styrofoam snow filling, poly fill and clear Easter grass. I've used the split in 2 bulbs but have found dropping them in from the top in a 3 inch bulb (or larger) works a lot better. I've had graduated parents come back to me with their 2nd's or 3rd's and ask for this ornament every year. The great thing, because of the supplies, it changes every year so big siblings ornament isn't the same as little siblings. I laminate the tag and also include the year
