Snow Globes for Christmas

I have such fond memories of crafting with my grandmother when I was very young. One of the things we used to make was Snow Globes for Christmas. We would use plastic flowers, beads and pearls, mica flakes and whatever else we could scrounge up from around the house. I miss those old snow globes, so I decided to do my own take on them and make a few. I had such fun making these two that I will be making more of them for sure. And of course even some for other holidays.

These are Waterless Snow Globes that I put together using some Vintage & Antique images from my vast postcard collection, Vintage Mica Flakes, Vintage Glitter, Beads & Pearls and other various items. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them. And Keep Peeking for more in the near future!
