Any creature can be a great Christmas ornament

Don’t believe me? How about a Christmas Snail Ornament to prove my point. After all, you wouldn’t think a snail is exactly the most Christmas-themed animal, and yet here are some ideas to really spruce up your Doug fir 😉

These are absolutely adorable amigurumi figurines that will be great both as hanging ornaments as well as little accents here and there around the home. Moreover, they are easy and customizable, so that you can totally match them to your decorative theme this year.

Martha the Christmas Snail

Martha is a wonderful snail amigurumi with a traditional Christmas bulb for a shell. The figurine is quite large, and consequently will be a great center piece in a wreath or on a large branch in your tree. While the proposed color set is quite beautiful, you can, of course, mix and match in accordance with your taste.

Glitter Snail Ornament

The Glitter Snail is a smaller, quicker snail-themed Christmas ornament that’s great as an accent on a table or sideboard. Moreover, it would also work great in a Christmas diorama, especially when done in candy cane colors, as shown.
