Easy Snowflake Ornament

 This is a very simple and economic ornament to make for your students.  This not a project for the children.  I like to make these as a little gift from me.  They are sooooo sweet.
I found the glitter snowflake ornaments at Walgreens at buy one, get one half price (there are 12 per box).  The clear gems came from the dollar store.
  • glitter snowflake ornaments
  • clear gems
  • Mod Podge
  • hot glue gun
  • photos
  1. Trace the shape of the gem over the part of the photo you would like to use.
  2. Cut out the photo piece. Cut the photo ever so slightly smaller than the size of the gem.
  3. Apply a thin coat of mod podge to the top of the photo and press the gem on top of it.
  4. Let dry for a few minutes.
  5. Hot glue the photo gem to the middle of the snowflake.
  6. Done!

  4. Great idea Sally! Those glass gems are wonderful and can be used for so many things. I got the smaller ones and used them to jazz up thumb tacks and used them in all kinds of ways in my classroom. You can check out a few of my examples on the following post I wrote. http://creatingthroughlife.blogspot.com/2011/11/gleaming-glass-magnets-thumb-tacks-and.html

  5. I hopped on over and loved your ideas for the glass gems! Loved the thumb tacks and magnets! So cute!
