I just found this fun little crystal ice burg ornament project online and I thought I would share it with everyone. I think its super cute and easy. This one has a fun vintage look to it but you could pretty much do anything! Its like your own little landscape! Below is a step by step on how to make it.

Step One: Choose the crystals you would like to use. Lay them out and get a feel for how they would look best clustered together.

* If you would like a color to shine through the crystal, add a little bit of paint to the side of the crystal that will be facing the inside of the ornament. The light will shine through it on the tree and make it glow which ever color you decide to paint it.

Step 2: Start gluing your crystals together. Loop a string through the inside and let the extra dangle from the bottom. Once all the crystals are glued together you can just cut the excess off. Glue your fake snow around the top of the crystals.

Step Three: Add a little shimmer paper for some added effect and glue your characters to the top.

There you have it! A fun handmade Christmas ornament that you can keep for yourself or share with your friends. Have fun!
