Waterless Snow Globe

pcp 11397

I’ve been wanting to make a waterless snow globe for a long time now and I finally got it accomplished.  I had saved this big glass jar a long time ago knowing that someday I would have a use for it. Well that day finally arrived.  I went digging through my craft things and found a little tree and a Santa. I wanted a snowman but didn’t have it on hand. I did have some snow though. I hot glued the tree and Santa to the lid, threw in some snow, way too much snow the first time, I had Santa buried up to his neck. I then put the lid back on and turned it upside down. You could make all kinds of winter scenes!

I was having so much fun I decided to make some more. I love gingerbread men so of course I had to make one with a ginger in it.

Then I went and found me some snowmen. Who knows, I may never stop, it’s so much fun.
