Buckets of Snow Ornaments Kid’s Christmas Craft
- White Pails from the Dollar Tree
- Fluffy White Yarn
- Letter Stickers
There are lots of ways to make pom poms and even tools that can be bought to assist in making ones that are all very uniform in appearance. I prefer to use a simple finger wrap method. If making pom poms with children, this is an easy way to get them involved. They’ll need help with the cutting steps.
How to Make Yarn Pom Poms without a Tool
- Cut a piece of yarn approximately 6″ long.
- For the “snow” make varying sizes by adding more wraps of yarn.
- Slip the yarn from your (or your child’s) fingers and place the small length of yarn beneath it.
- Tie the yarn around the center of the loops.
- Snip the loops.
- Trim to the size you want.
Add a strip of ribbon around the bottom of the bucket. Children can use white craft glue or you can help by adding a dot of hot glue to hold the ribbon in place.
Add stickers to the buckets. Mine have the initials of each of my grandchildren on them. Any fun Christmas stickers would be great, too.
Tie a piece of ribbon around the handle of the bucket for hanging the ornament.
Fill the buckets about three quarters of the way full with yarn so that the snowballs will sit on top. Add three yarn snowballs to each bucket.
Each child can embellish their own ornament however they would like. Have an assortment on hand of stickers, markers, jingle bells, or other items that they would like.
