Welcome to the 2015 Ornament Exchange! Erlene at My Pinterventures partnered 80+ bloggers to exchange ornaments and we are sharing our creations or special finds with you! Through November 13th we are sharing our ornament tutorials or shopping trips. Then on November 14th come back here to the link party for everyone to share their Holiday ornament tutorial or shopping adventure and to see all the ornaments in the 2015 Ornament Exchange.
When I received my exchange partner Bobbie St. Clair at From This To That, I couldn’t wait to see if she was a vintage loving girl like me. Well she is, so I pondered what to do. Do I buy and ornament or make one?
I decided to make a waterless snow globe.
Here’s how I did it:
- Small Glass Jar (jelly jar from Fortnum and Mason)
- Gold spray paint (on hand from another project)
- Mini bottle brush trees (Hobby Lobby)
- Small reindeer figure (Hobby Lobby)
- Snow (on hand from last Christmas)
- Santa bell (Hobby Lobby)
- Small nail
- Spray paint top of jar gold set aside to dry
- Glue the reindeer to the bottom of the jar
- Glue the bottle brush trees to the bottom of the jar
- Sprinkle in some snow flakes
- Place a dot of glue on the back of the jar
- Starting at the dot of glue wrapping red and white twine around jar top
- Place another dot of glue in back to secure the twine when finished wrapping
- Tie on the Santa bell
- Use the hammer and small nail to make two small holes in jar top
- Thread twine through the holes and tie inside the jar lid to make a hanger
- Put the top on the jar and done
Making this ornament was quick and easy. My favorite kind of project. I’m going to make a few more for the booth.
Now I’m hoping that Bobbie St. Clair likes it.
