Snow Globes {Anthropologie Knockoff}

I was at my FAVORITE store and my heart skipped a beat!
I tend to prefer simple crafts that make a big impact so this was totally meant for me!!!  I grabbed some Mason Jars (they are 50% off at Hobby Lobby this week, just saying).  A couple white napkins from my kitchen and my glue gun. (Powder Artificial Snow, Epson salt or polyfill would work great, too).
With the “snow” set, I hot glued a couple dollhouse Christmas trees (they’re sold in both the dollhouse area and the Christmas area, but since Christmas is marked down right now, go for the ones in the Christmas section).
I didn’t want all three to be completely the same, so I took a garland that I had laying around and cut off one portion, cut a slit in one of the napkins and glued that faux tree into the napkin and held for 10 seconds until it was secure.  I had a couple of bitty pine cones laying around so I placed that in one of the globes also.
Truly, it’s more about the effect than the details.  And it’s totally Anthropologie so you can’t go wrong!!!
Different tree sizes and styles.  I really wanted a porcelain tree, too.  Still looking for that!!!

I took the trees out in their lids and gave them a spray of artificial snow.  It’s a little messy so I threw on my jacket and sprayed them outside.

With the snow still wet, I sprinkled a bit of sugar (you can use artificial snow, just whatever you have on hand).  I love a little shimmer, shine and sparkle!  When you put the lid back on just leave the lid with trees on the kitchen counter and cover with the jar.  Then screw the jar into place by pressing firmly down on the jar while it is on a hard surface.

For now these are in front of the Christmas tree, but I’m thinking mantle before long.  We have the Christmas music going and are munching on my Simple and Tasty {Two Ingredient} Peppermint Bark as we deck the halls!

The look and price make me SMILE!
 Two-ish Dollars a piece beats Twenty-Five-ish Dollars a piece, right!!!
And isn’t this SUPER CUTE!
