Here are some of my favourite Christmas pins, some I can’t wait to try and some that I just like to look at and thought you might enjoy.
I get most of my supplies from Michaels art stores in Canada. I find that they start coming out with their 50%off, 40% off, buy-one-get-one coupons starting now (Fall) and they usually go until January. So keep an eye out for those coupons and print them out or screenshot those suckers and save them on your phone. It makes shopping for supplies MUCH cheaper. I bought a bunch of glass globe ornaments to fill and paint and I got them for a great price. They were buy one get one 50% off and each pack had 5 glass globes in it. They were on sale to begin with, I think 5.99 a pack!
You can find all of the pins below on my Christmas board here:

I’m going to start with my favourite pin. I planned on making these last year- and even bought all the supplies!- but I just didn’t feel up to actually making them. Maybe this year! If I do, I will post them in a separate post.

Cover an ornament in glue or mod podge and roll it in epsom salt or glitter to make a lovely “snowy” crystal ornament!

Snowed In: Vintage Bottle Brush Christmas Tree Ornament
If you have tiny ornaments, like deer or elves.., they too would look great in these snowy globes!
This one links to Neiman Marcus, but aren’t they gorgeous!? I imagine these would be easy to make a bit of glue, glitter, rhinestones or other sparkly bits.
Ok, that’s it for now. There’s a TON more ideas on my Pinterest if you wanted to check them out. I also like to pin ‘group’ pins. The kind that lead you to a site full of multiple DIY’s, like “30 ornaments to make” etc.. So check those out too!
