Winter Wonderland Snow Globes

November 7, 2012

Christmas is everywhere right now. Blogs are posting holiday gift guides and Christmas cards. Pinterest is almost completly consumed with holiday crafts and recipes; and the stores of course set up there decorations while the kids were out trick or treating.

Over the weekend I decided to get in on the festivities and make some snow globe decorations for our mantel. I justified it by saying they are really more of a wintery craft than a Christmas one. But then again the calendar might be calling for colder weather but here in California the weatherman sure isn't.

You've probably seen these little beauties around before. Anthropoligie sold them in their store and everyone all at once started making them themselves. So I jumped on that bandwagon and got right to work. My trees didn't come with snow already on them so I added my own with a little bit of white craft paint. I also thought a fawn would be a nice touch.

I get to work on a custom Christmas card for a friend today. I guess I better start listening to Chrismas music to get me the spirit of things! Bummer, right? Who am I kidding?
