Snow Globe Stitched Felt Ornament made with Regular Dies

Snow Globe Stitched Felt Ornament made with Regular Dies

Hey friends! I’m so glad I finished stitching my 2nd snow globe ornament made with regular dies. If you didn’t catch my post where I made the first one on an embroidery hoop, click here.

This time, I wanted to make it an hanging ornament that I stuffed with polyfill. I hope to at some point buy a stitching snow globe die set but for now I’m shopping my crafty stash. If you want to know all the details of how I made the snow globe on an embroidery hoop, check that link above to my earlier post.

Shop your Crafty Stash

In this post, I just wanted to say creating with what you have is just fine. Sometimes, we see new products on the market and content creators and influencers use them and think we have to buy that set. And, in some cases you do or maybe you really want that set and you have a slew of ideas of how you would use it, then by all means buy it! I’m only saying that if it’s not within your budget and you have something similar, then use that.

We buy a lot of dies in our industry and use them once or twice and then they go into a drawer not to be seen again. I’ve gone through my stash forgetting I had even bought a set. So when I saw snow globe stitched ornaments, I really wanted to make one but didn’t have that die and it’s not in my near future to buy, I thought “what can I use?”

I started out with a circle die and I love the nested die set I have from Waffle Flower Crafts. I’ve used this so many times! So I took the largest size and die cut it on the blue felt. Then, I thought what could I use for the base? Well, I own Memory Box’s Plush Mitten die set. So why not use the cuff die as my base?

How do I want to decorate the snow globe? Typically, snow globes have scenes and I do have ideas for future but in this case, I wanted a snowy type design so I reached for Mama Elephant’s snowflake cover die set in my stash. I die cut the large snowflake on white felt and stitched it onto the blue circle piece with crystal seed beads. Then, I added some tiny white seed beads to act as snowflakes.

I die cut two circles (and 2 cuffs) so after adhering the snowflake, I stitched on the cuffs on the front and back and stitched around using the blanket stitch and then stuffed it. I didn’t forget to add my ribbon to the top for hanging. Lastly, I added the blue bow and my ornament was complete. It took me about a couple of hours and now I have this pretty thing I can hang on my tree, a wreath, garland, whatever I want. I LOVE IT!

So, I encourage you to always shop your stash cause sometimes it only takes a little creativity to make a beautiful piece of work! Thanks for Reading!
