diy: snowglobes

Merry Christmas Week!  

I've always loved hand-crafted Christmas decorations.  Truly, crafting at Christmas was part of my childhood experience.  My sister and I were all about decorating.  Little did we know, we would both end up designing for a living.  

With holiday festivities in full swing, I wanted to share a short + sweet post of a simple snow-inspired DIY project.  I have always loved  handmade snowglobes. I found some ornaments that were perfect for making a snowglobe wonderland (The little pink house + some bottle-brush trees found at Target were the starting point).  I spray-painted some trees + ornaments white just because I love white at Christmas time (well, let's be honest...I love white any time of year).  If you follow me on instagram, you may have already seen some of the results of an afternoon of crafting...



I used glass pastry stands I already had (one of the perks of being a photo stylist)...and also used some mason jars + vases + glass candle dishes (it's amazing all the resources you can find in your own home). I then added some faux  snow + iridescent glitter.  I shook the snow + glitter around the glass containers to make sure some of the magical shimmer stuck to the insides of the glass bell jars.

I have played around with placing our creations in a collection, as well as along with other holiday decor... 



It was a fun + simple afternoon craft that adds some hand-made magic to our home for the holidays.

Wishing you + yours a wonderful week of magical, memory-making moments.
