Rage. Probably political rage. Maybe just personal rage. Lots of sarcasm and cynicism. Also pretty pictures.
What you’ll need:
- clear ornaments (i used both orb and “hockey puck” shaped ornaments)
- glitter spray paint (i used krylon glitter)
- faux evergreen garland (one that you don’t mind taking a few branches off of)
- styrofoam blocks (or fake snow)
- glue dots ( i used zots) or a hot glue gun
- funnel (rolled up paper also works)
- white spray paint (optional)
- tinsel glitter (optional)
- puffy paint (optional)
Step 1: Create Mini Trees
Clip off a few branches of a faux evergreen garland—
Flock your trees using white & glitter spray paint—
Set aside the trees to dry.
Step 2: Prepare the Snow
Rub together two blocks of styrofoam—
Step 3: Assemble the Ornaments
Using short blasts, lightly spray the inside of the ornament with glitter spray and let dry—
Using a glue dot or your hot glue gun, put a dot of glue on the base of the tree—
Use tweezers to “plant” the tree in the ornament—
Using a funnel, add foam snow/and or glitter to the ornament and give a little shake—
Ta-Da! A Winter Wonderland Snow Globe Ornament!
But that’s not all! There’s definitely room to experiment.
For some ornaments I used glitter spray paint & foam snow—
Some I used white spray paint & foam snow—
This one has just tinsel glitter—
And this one has foam snow inside—
Adding to the growing group of jar reuses with these three finds:
1. Jar tops with holes in them enable you to more easily carry drinks (read: less likely to spill them), especially when you’re on the go. The reusable/refillable jar-glasses pictured above, via PoppyandPearlCo on Etsy, come with reusable, BPA-free straws. (Spotted on Pinterest, via TreasureAgain.)
2. BPA-free, reusable (and recyclable) Cuppow screw-on tops also make it easier to carry beverages with you, without spilling them.
3. This next idea — cutting off the tops of salt containers and placing them onto the tops of jars — made the blog and Pinterest rounds several months ago. Still brilliant. (via Pinterest; click through for a brief tutorial)
