Snowflake Ornament

Continuing on with my winter decor, I wanted to show you a super cute snowflake ornament that I made just for the occasion.  A trip to the dollar store and a few things out of my stash and look what I've got!
Right before Thanksgiving, I had to go downtown Boise for a meeting and had breakfast at one of my favorite restaurants called A'Tavola.  They have amazing food-I had the Croque Monsieur and breakfast potatoes-highly recommended!  They also always have fun things to purchase and decorate the whole place so festively.  These snowflake ornaments were right up my alley and I sneakily took a picture so that I could make some on my own! 
The Dollar Tree had these large snowflake ornaments in a 2 pack and the silver snowflake ornaments in a 5 pack.  Everything else I had.  I used vintage sheet music to create the medallions, lined the edge in silver glitter and glued it onto the large snowflake. 
I then glued the silver snowflake to the middle of the medallion and stuck a clear glass pebble to the middle of that. It needed some sparkle so I added clear glitter to it and it is perfect!  I made 2 of these and they are the perfect for my winter decor.  Now I may have to copy that adorable snowball garland they had as well! 
Stay warm out there friends!

Your snowflakes are so cute!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who takes pics and tries to make my own. I always feel guilty taking the picture.

Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!
