A simply sweet ornament to craft

Photo by Craftberry Bush
Another busy day found me searching for a quick and easy ornament to link to for all of you.  My Christmas kitchen is having to take a bit of a back seat to other endeavors, yet I do want to follow through on posting here every day in July.  So far, so good!

I looked back through some ideas I had saved and found this sweetly simple ornament: Winter Wonderland ornament. There are not detailed instructions, but I think the most difficult part would be getting the tree into the ornament without breaking the glass. Might require a little experimenting... I have made the type with the tiny pine cones (actually hemlock cones) inside, and the easiest way to put those in the ornament is upside down. It would probably be the same with the tree, so you would want to wait until the paint or glue is dry before attempting this. I am going to try one and see how it goes. I'll post about it here when I do!

Edited to add: I've been told that the link above does not work. I think I have fixed it, so if you try going there now, you should get to the correct page.  My friend Les found a link that does work, and as a bonus, it contains detailed instructions for how to make variations on this lovely ornament! Look here: handmade ornament. Have fun with these sweet ideas!


  1. Nice! I'd love to do one with a Charlie Brown Christmas tree in it.

  2. What a fun variation that would be! Be sure and post about it if you do make one!
