Day 28 DIY Holiday Snowglobe Snowman, Christmas gift

Day 28 Holiday Snowman Snowglobe :)

I made these little guys after I did the snowglobe reindeer in my previous post .. so cute ..  This little snow globe would make a lovely gift or decoration and kids will love to make it as well for a fun Christmas craft!

What you will need;
~ a jar, I used a baby food jar reduce reuse recycle
~ glue gun and liquid glue (I used E6000)
~ burlap, mine was from Michaels and has this amazing gold glitter too it!
~ snow flakes you can find at most dollar stores or craft stores
~ Twine or ribbon (mine is from Micheals, its hemp twine with metallic threads .. sparkle!)
~ miniature figurines .. at this time of year they are everywhere, mine are from AC Moors
~ a small piece of wood or foam 1"
~ glitter!  

Your scene will be set on the inside of your lid as your jar will be upside down. glue your wood or foam to the inside of the lid, your snowman will stand on this .. it will give him height so he is not hidden under the lip of the lid.

                 Next Glue your snowman and tree to your wood.  
I used a glue gun.

Now take your liquid glue .. I used E600, and cover your wood and whatever part of the lid shows .. again making sure to leave room for the jar to fit ontop.

let it snow .. 

cover your scene in snow and puch it down with your fingers so it can attach to the glue, of course you'll still have lots of loose snow for flurries :)

Glitter time .. sprinle your glitter on top, as much as you'd like.

I added these amazing gold and silver glitter stars too

 put your jar on top .. its good to add a little E6000 to the track so no little ones can unscrew it.

now measure your burlap piece .. aout 1/2" larger then the lid or enough to cover whatever size your lid is.

Glue your burlap onto your lid.  I put one dot of glue in the center of the lid and then worked in sections glueing along the outer edge of the lid.

look at how pretty it is with the gold thread!

Lastly wrap your twine or whatever ribbon you choose around the burlap ..
I used white with silver thread :)

walaa! whimsical, cute .. I love this!
