Tips to Make a Santa Letter Ornament

  • To start, you will want to click here to download the little letter to Santa. You can either have the kiddo write their wish on it or you can have them write their letter and then wrap it up inside the printable. Whichever works for you.
  • The best way I have found to get the faux snow (this fluffy stuff here) inside the ornament is to make a little funnel with paper. Using an actual funnel gets clogged up too easy in my opinion. But a paper funnel is a lot easier to deal with.
  • You’ll need a fillable ornament for this and, if you don’t have one, get several. Once you see how easy it is to make this fast ornament, you’re going to want to make a ton more fun variations!
