Paper Snow Globe Ornament - hand holding the paper snow globe decorationHere is a mess free snow globe ornament you can make, it is a paper version. This ornament is made with construction paper and acrylic paint.

This is my trial run and I loved how it turned out. I will be cutting out two sets for my kids to each decorate as an activity for their Christmas tree.


Total Time: 20 minutes


  • assorted construction paper
  • acrylic paint + paintbrush
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • tape
  • pipe cleaner (or ribbon)


  1. Using construction paper, freehand and cut out the shapes you'll need. You'll need a globe and globe stand shape.
  2. Paper Snow Globe Ornament - construction paper globe and base
  3. Cut out a Christmas tree (and any other shapes, designs you may want in your globe - optional).
  4. Paper Snow Globe Ornament - paper tree with a trunk
  5. Glue down all the pieces.
  6. Paper Snow Globe Ornament - glue the pieces together
  7. Using acrylic paint (left over from previous projects) dab color mixture to resemble ornaments.
  8. Paper Snow Globe Ornament - use paint to add ornaments

  9. Dab white paint along the bottom of the globe and in the background to resemble snow.
  10. Paper Snow Globe Ornament - use white paint to add falling snow and snow on the base
  11. I created a loop and taped a pipe cleaner on the back of the globe, but you can use ribbon (or any other hanging method you'd like).
