Snow Globe Ornaments

For parent gifts this year I wanted to go ALL out. I'm so thankful for my students' families and all the support they've given me. I saw these snow globe ornaments on Pinterest. I wish I could give credit but it was to a dead link! (If you know where the original idea came from I'd love to give a shout out!)
Anyways, I'm so stinkin' THRILLED with how they came out!!

The hardest part of this ornament was getting the fake snow in the bottom. Oye, worse than glitter! I kid you not, I got a piece in my eyeball and I thought I was going to lose my cornea! This is not a project to do with kids. Don't even think about it. BUT, it was simple and man they're cute!
All you need are plastic globe ornaments, I got mine at Michael's for super cheap with my teacher discount. :) You'll also need a bag of "fake snow". I got mine on Amazon but you can find it anywhere and you can use a variety of different things! Ripped up paper could work, especially if you want to avoid the whole "torn cornea" issue! LOL 
I used a funnel to get the fake snow in my globes.
Next you'll need pictures of your kids. I took mine right in the classroom. I called them over one at a time and asked them to throw their hands in the air, free, and give me and excited face. I used one hour photo and snipped around their heads and arms. From there, all you have to do is stuff them in and add some ribbon and a tag. You can grab my tags for FREE by clicking the picture above!
