Use an ornament and various sized pom poms from the craft store. Tacky glue or hot glue will do the trick! Add a little bow and a cute face. This is a great gift idea for kids to make too. Source unknown.
15. Wine Glass Snow Globes
Head to the dollar store and pick up a collection of wine glasses, a bag of fake snow, and a few holiday figurines. All of these items can also be found at any craft store.
