How to Make a Lit Festive Snowstorm Ornament


Festive Snowstorm Ornament

We recently had a slight snowstorm disaster when trying to make our own beanbags!  The bag of polystyrene balls split open and they fell all over the floor.  As we tried to clear them up, static electricity charged these little white balls and they began to swirl and stick to everything!  This made us think of a snowstorm and spurred us on to make this festive ornament!

How We Made Festive Snowstorm Ornament

First, we took a ribbon and tied it to the top of our bauble ornament.  Then, we took a new LED tealight and switched it on before placing it inside the ornament.  Next, we added some of the statically charged polystyrene balls.  Finally, we closed the bauble and sealed it before giving it a good shake.

By shaking the ornament, the polystyrene balls stick to the inside of the plastic bauble and make it look as though there is a snowstorm inside!

We often create new things from recycling and looks like some other people do too!  Teach Me Mommy has created a cute Snow Ornament  And these wonderful Teacake Baubles from The Gingerbread House.

Always interested in writing, reading and learning in general. I love the quirky and unusual! All thoughts are my own!
