Before I tell you how I made them, I've got to point out my vintage French crate from Decor Steals. I know, I know, it's gorgeous!! Wish I had bought more when they had them. So back to my little snow globes.
Following the directions from Homemade Modern, I selected some jars, mostly mason jars. I removed the paper on the jars that had paper labels, by first soaking them in water and removing the paper. Any paper that was left was removed with nail polish remover. I then glued some tiny bottle brush trees from Micheal's into the bottom of the jars, and poured in some Epson salts. The final touch was a soft blue ribbon for the jar.
This is probably the only snow we'll be seeing at the ranch. I also added my inherited vintage preserve jar to the crate, filling it with vintage Christmas ornaments.
To add an unexpected element to the display, I placed chandy light bulbs in another inherited footed bowl. I love the texture and bit of whimsy. Basically all that was left to do was add some cedar from the outdoors to the crate.
You may not know this about me, but I don't like to spend lots of money on seasonal items. I'm not saying I'm cheap
Please come back Thursday night at 8 pm to join the our Homespun Christmas Link Party. We would love for you to link up a Christmas post.
I am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful ideas I know will be here.
Here's a list of the parties that I visit on a regular basis. I might have shared this link at any number of these.
