Happy November! I'm usually Polly Procrastinator when it comes to Christmas crafting and decorating but this year our Festive Christmas Ideas (formerly 12 Days of Christmas) hop is early... so I'm early!

Supplies Needed to Make Your Own:

Step one... eat lots of ice cream!! 😁 (Best project ever, am I right?!) If you are eating Keto like I am then you don't have to feel guilty because there are several different brands of Keto ice cream to choose from and no guilt! Even if you're not Keto... don't feel guilty girl... it's a sacrifice we must make to be crafty!!!

Choose some scrapbook papers you like and cut circles to fit inside the lid and on the back. (I made a template with scrap paper first so that I didn't have to do a lot of trimming every time because I made a lot of these!)

Use Mod-Podge to adhere the circles to the lid.

Before you adhere the paper to the back, paint the edge that will be visible, don't worry about the sides of the lid, we will cover that with ribbon or paper.

Generally, you will want the less busy paper on the inside to allow the elements that you place inside to be the spotlight. 😊

Cover the side of the lid with a strip of scrapbook paper or some coordinating ribbon.

Use what you have! I used some packaging from the miniature trees on this one. I liked the polka dots and the bottom portion will be covered anyway!

For this one, I had a snowflake sticker sheet with a clear background that I used to cover the paper inside.

For several of my ornaments, I made snowy hills with white scrapbook paper. I drew along the edges to really define them. Adhere these to the inside of the ornament with double-sided foam squares.

I cut these little houses from scrapbook paper and tucked them behind the hills using the foam tape.

These tiny bottle brush trees are perfect for these ornaments to give them some dimension!

Remove the base and cut the branches off one side so it will lie flat.

Use white craft glue to add the tree.

Add glitter that has big flakes or use fake snow. I used mica flake glitter.

Just toss a little bit in there but not so much that the scene will be overcome!

Use the plastic from food containers (think of the containers that berries and lettuce come in) and cut a circle to cover the front of the ornament. Make sure it's big enough to cover the edges well, you can trim later.

Add a bead of white craft glue (hot glue will melt the plastic) around the edge of the lid and place the plastic over the top. Then, flip the whole thing over... gently, but quickly, and allow it to dry face down for several hours. If you're impatient like me, this is the hardest part!!

Once that's dry, add a hanger, some tinsel around the edge, and some embellishments!
