DIY hanging snow globe ornaments

Hi Everyone! Or should I say … Merry Christmas? It feels like Christmas anyway with all the decorating I’ve been doing around the house. In case you don’t know me yet, I’m Jennifer Zuri at Town and Country Living and I’m a regular contributor here at Jennifer Rizzo’s blog. The holidays can certainly feel rushed and pressured so I like to come up with easy Christmas decorating ideas. Today I’m sharing DIY hanging snow globe ornaments that are ridiculously easy to make and look so pretty, too!

But these are made from hanging glass terrariums.
