Hey everyone! As promised, I'm going to explain to you how to make those adorable anthropologie knock-off snow globes. I have seen this done a zillion times and had to have them myself. I wanted mine to be very simple. I took several blue vintage Ball mason jars, decorated a miniature tree (from the local craft store) glued it to the lid and threw some fake snow in the jar. Easy Peasy. You can put anything you want in these. I also made one with fake greenery and white pearly berries. You could get really detailed and create a whole Christmas scene if you wanted. Another cute idea would be to put a picture in there or small ornaments. A miniature one can be made inside a salt shaker from the dollar store. To flock your mini tree, spray hairspray on the tree, than sprinkle sugar over it. Here's what I did in less than 15 minutes. Like I said I wanted a very simple look. Maybe next year if I had more time I will make a more elaborate one.
I love the icy blue color of the vintage mason jars.
I also adore the way these pictures look old, you can download the Hipstamatic IPhone app to get this look for you pictures.
I hope you are all having a very lovely week!
