wee wednesday with lindsay | DIY Snowglobes

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...

How to Make a Snow Globe by Martha Stewart 

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...)
