Homemade Snowglobes and Other Cute Things

Today I wanted to share some things my friend and fellow dealer brought into the shop for the holidays.  I think these little jar snow globes are so cute.  They would be a great project for kids to make.  Aren't they adorable?
This next photo is what I think started out as a styrofoam cone.  Tinsel garland was wrapped around it and this bottle brush star was added to the top.  In the background you can see Deb's chalkboard alphabet ornaments that she made and a wreath made from old crocheted pot holders.
I love these next ornaments.  Deb told me she didn't make these, but I bet they are homemade.  They are composed of a packing type string and glitter.  Very cute.  I love looking at other people's creativity, but I think my very favorites are the jar snow globes.  They are a big hit this year.
Thanks for stopping by.  I love all the creativity that abounds at this time of year, and I especially love things that children can make.  It gives them such a feeling of accomplishment.

Cute globes. I like how you glued the tinsel strand around the bottom of the jar. I think I'll steal that idea. I made 2 last year. One with pastels and one with red and green. take care, Darlene

Great ideas!! I am so blonde, I looked and looked and can't find the pot holder wreath. I was thinking.... I wonder if I could make a wreath with doilies!!
