Make It: Start by picking up a clear glass or plastic ball ornament. Add a two-inch layer of artificial snow along the bottom, and then suspend miniature holiday figurines from the ornament's foil or metal cap using fishing line. Once hung, this simple, clear ornament takes on the appearance of a sophisticated snow globe.
Trade out your everyday decor for touches of the season. A jar full of peppermints, a miniature snow globe and a letter to St. Nicholas bring the right amount of cheer to the entryway table. Wooden candlesticks are topped with blue pillar candles to pull in the holiday color scheme.
