I'm not huge on christmasy decor, but I adore winter decor. Snow, snowflakes, deer, evergreens & twinkly lights. A few years ago I created some homemade snow globes with deer & penguin figurines, mason jars, miniature trees & a hot glue gun, they were darling. I put them out every year and look forward to making more with Juliette this year. I found a easy to follow step by step guide on MarthaStewart.com, what doesn't this woman do perfectly? Enjoy...
The shimmering magic of snowfall is always transfixing, whether it's outside your window or inside this classic toy. Homemade globes let you create a wintry scene straight out of your own imagination.
Almost any jar works for this project: Baby-food, pimiento, and olive jars are good choices. Look for plastic or ceramic figurines (metal ones are prone to rust) at flea markets and hobby or model-railroad shops. Synthetic evergreen tips are available at many floral-supply stores. You will also need oil-based enamel paint, sandpaper, epoxy, distilled water, glitter, and glycerin. (click link to find out the step by step guide to creating a gorgeous winter wonderland...)
