Christmas in July! Kid-Friendly Strawberry Basket Snowflake Ornament

Good morning! How is your summer going? Mine is going too fast! This past week was a busy and emotional one. I helped Lauren move, drove to Fullerton with Haley for orientation, said good-bye to our Chica, celebrated Rozy’s 2nd birthday and helped out at the shelter. I can tell you- this schedule makes it difficult to get any projects done!  I thought I would share one Christmas in July project. This involves strawberry baskets, so start saving them! This is a perfect one to do with the kids!

You will need a strawberry basket that has the ‘X’ design on the bottom. I happened to find a couple of them in my stash.

Cut off the bottom of the basket and cut off any edges until you have the snowflake design. These cut really easy-I just used regular scissors.

I painted glue all over one side of the snowflake…

and then sprinkled on the glitter! It’s that easy! You could use whatever glitter you like! I used silver and clear, so some of the turquoise showed through.

After the snowflake is dry, turn it over and do the same on the other side. Add a string or ribbon and it is ready to hang on the tree. So pretty!

That’s it! So simple, but looks so pretty! I would love to hear if you try it too!
