k, so, mason jar snow globes. love them. have wanted to make these forevz and i gotta say, the only thing holding me back was not having the perf little bits and bobs right in the moment of whimsy. you know the moment i'm speaking of. when you get inspired to make something in particular, your eyes get bigger, cuter, crazier as you rummage around looking for all those bits. for me, it was not having the perfect little scene to put in the jars. all the holiday stuff i'd find wasn't the right size or was too cheesy. defeated, my crafty halfie would go down and i'd just make something else.
well, a couple thrifting expeditions this past year have been fruitful in the finding of the cutest vintage creatures for this project. i paid 25 cents for the little angel i've used here and for all three of the deer, 50 cents!!!
tip: i used to always get annoyed seeing holiday items at thrift stores post xmas, but since i've been wanting to make these for so long, i'd check out the sad abandoned ghosts of xmas' past. once in a while i'd find a tiny treasure but realized that it was the winter theme that was what was inspiring me, not xmas, hence the deer in the snow. so, get clever with what you put inside. i have a few vintage ornaments that wont fit in any jars i have, so, in a vase, or on a cake stand they go. get creative. "make a scene!"
i couldn't fit all three deer in the jar, so up on top he went. i loooove him there!!!
k....now go make you some snow globes!
