Snowscape Ornament

I finally have my Christmas Tree up! While most of my crafty friends have had their trees up for weeks, I’ve finally pulled out all my holiday decor, and started decorating the house. Hopefully all in time for our annual party this weekend. While I’m in the Christmas spirit, I made this little snowscape ornament. Super simple to make, and you don’t need any special crafty skills. If an adult helps with the cutting, and hot glue, a child could help with the rest – it is that simple to make!
