I have noticed a big trend right now are these awesome little DIY anthro inspired snow globes and I just love them!! Although I have seen them all over blog-land, when I searched while out and about, I found a tutorial on Whipperberry and went with this.
I originally had actually put these on my list of things to make in prep for NEXT year thinking I would never find trees this late in the game. Leave it to Walmart, a place I despise and try to go to as little as possible, to have a few for $1/each. Hubby and I were actually there for other things and I just mosied into the holiday section and scored a few. I made out even better because 2 were broken (aka no base) and the cashier just popped them in my bag. I also got a wide mason jar there ( I had the typical big and small ones already) and picked up some more epson salts. So this is what I started with.
From here, I trimmed up some of the trees so that they appropriately fit into the jars- since I am soooo spacially challenged and just grabbed whatever trees I could.
And finished product pictures- GO!
Either way, I was pretty tickled about making these- even if it was 1am (monday , after being up since 6am (Sunday) and then we proceded to be up until after 4am working on this that and the other thing. Color us crazy and you'd be right.
Hope you enjoyed my little project!
