Felt Landmark Snow Globe Ornaments

Dreaming of a white Christmas this year?  These felt snow globes can make your dreams come true.  No matter the weather, bring a bit of snow to your holiday with these embroidered felt landmark snow globe ornaments.

These felt snow globe ornaments were inspired by Kate Spade's snow globe gift tags. How cute are they? 

They are printed on 100% cotton paper and sold in a set of 9 {3 of each design} for $12. The only problem {besides that I can't justify spending $12 on 9 gift tags} is that they should be made out of something more sustainable than paper because they are so darn cute.

When I saw these, I immediately thought, I should make these out of felt.

So that's exactly what I did.

Using 2 pieces of felt for each snow globe, some googled images and needle and white thread, I embroidered my own snow globes.

I think they are just about as cute as Kate Spade's version...

The possibilities of personalizing these snow globes are endless.

You can make one for places you've visited or are dreaming of visiting.

Like Kate Spade's gift tags, these can be used as a gift tag...

but are also sustainable enough to then use as a Christmas ornament. I just love the thought of adding something homemade to the top of a beautifully wrapped Christmas present.

A quick and easy gift for anyone dreaming about a White Christmas this year.


  1. Love it! I would never have the patience to make these! You do such amazing work! Great job.

  2. Haaha! How adorable! I just want to hug them. Start with parsley Amy because it is the easiest herb.

  3. I agree they are as good as the kate spade version. I just love these I love how you give us such wonderful inspiration my friend. Thank you

  4. What a great idea! These are super cute. What a great way to document travels and special places at Christmas .

  5. Amy, really- so cute! I like them as ornaments too. The places you've been or the places you want to go. Designer gift tags, I had no idea! But I like yours much better:)

    1. Thanks Amy. Even though I know they are felt, I still want to give them a good shake :)

  6. Great idea. I like the idea to use travel ... and everyone has a destination they dream of visiting. :-)

  7. So very cute. That's a heck of a lot of embroidery though. I'd have to be watching a Pride and prejudice marathon or something to make them. I wonder what I'd do for Utah...oh Delicate Arch would be pretty.

  8. I love it I've been waiting for the felt decorations, I am slightly miffed that in your dreams Melbourne is not there :P

  9. Okay Kate Spade's are adorable but yours are so much cooler! I love that you took an idea and made it better... much better! I would so pay $12 for a set of your ornaments (and dare I say even more;))... especially with all the handwork you did!! You always amaze me with the details of your felt creations!!

  10. I love these Amy! Especially the Paris one!! I have seriously got to get myself doing some projects with felt this winter. It's always wonderful when a gift tag is a gift as well. I think yours are better than Kate Spade's because the felt is more durable and will last longer. Just fabulous!

  11. Oh Amy, those are just wonderful! I love that you put the Bean on the Chicago one! Did you design them yourself? I think these are my favorite felt project yet! I say yet..because you are after all the queen of all things felt. I'm probably going to have to try a felt project one of these days and you are setting the bar really high!

  12. Awesome! I admit I had no idea what the Chicago emblem was, looks like a jelly bean:)-
    I agree with Maysem, def worth buying, much more so than gift tags that people would only throw away. Your work is amazing, as usual:)

  13. You always make the best felt projects. Kate Spade may be my favorite purses...but their tags have nothing on your cute ornaments. What a great idea!

  14. I love Kate Spade - and your version of these ornaments is just as good - no, better! - than the original! Pinned (of course!)

  15. Oh my gosh, soooo much better than Kate Spade's version! I love that you used felt and hand embroidered. What a great job of all the cities! In your Etsy shop?
