DIY Rae Dunn or Frozen 2 inspired ornaments

My daughter celebrated her 9th birthday today and we held a slumber party over the weekend. While thinking of activities to include, I decided on having the children make homemade ornaments. I didn't want anything too involved or messy, so we settled on these Rae Dunn or Frozen 2 inspired ornaments. The writing reminds me of Rae Dunn collection pieces while the inside reminds me of Frozen 2. I loved the idea of making ornaments for a winter slumber party because it was a great activity plus they got a little party favor to take home.

To re-create these super cute and easy ornaments, here are the supplies you will need:
- plastic clear globe ornaments
- fishing line
- faux craft snow
Glittering Snowflake ShapesGlitter Snowflake EmbellishmentsSnowflake Jewel Assortment, or Glitter Winter Pom-Poms (or all of the above)
- Winter Ornament Decal Sheets
- clear tape

DIY Easy Homemade Ornaments for Kids

What You Do:
1. Open your ornaments and place faux snow inside being careful not to over fill.
2. Fill with whatever other objects you would like to place inside, then close globe.
3. The stickers we ended up placing on individually. I tried to place the whole sticker on at first and then carefully take off the backing, but that had it pros and cons. They say different things like; stay cozy, winter mood, hello winter, let it snow, and warm wishes. They also come with a variety of sized snowflake stickers as well. Regardless of what method you use, then turned out great. some of the kids chose to only use one word like cozy or warm.
4. Make sure to apply clear tape on the edges of the plastic globe. If these drop on hard floor they will pop open. You can't see the clear tape, but you could also glue them together with hot glue if you'd like although I feel this may make it a little more complicated.
5. Then tie fishing line through top hole. You could also just put a hook in the top if you prefer.
