Snowman Snow Globe

Hi friends! Tonya here with a snowman snow globe I created! This pretty creation can be used as a Christmas decoration and be kept out even after you have taken down holiday decorations during the cold winter months.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1

I used a paper tart pan from a quiche I had purchased at Panera Bread. I cleaned throughly, applied two coats of gesso, painted one coat of Chalk Paint Sailing Sky and once dry applied a coat of Antique Mod Podge.

Step 2

Paint the 1 and 1 1/2 inch balls with Chalk Paint Tattered Lace. Once dry adhered carrot nose and two mini black gems to the 1 inch ball and add two dots of Chalk Paint French Rose to the snowman’s face to create rosy cheeks. Next take the 1 inch piece of  jewelry wire and push into the body of the snowman and then push the head into the piece of wire. Before completely pushing the head and body together add a small amount of glue. Push together and hold until the adhesive has dried .

Step 3

Add a little adhesive to each twig before pushing into each side of the snowman’s body. Apply a coat of Antique Mod Podge to the whole snowman and sprinkle with extra fine glitter. Once dry tie a small piece of the Crochet Ribbon 7mm Blue 2Mtr Little Birdie around the neck of the snowman and glue to the base of the tart pan.

Step 4

Adhere the mini bottle bush tree to the base and tear a part the battering and glue around the snowman and the tree.

Step 5

Hollow out the 1 inch SmoothFoam ball so it will fit to the top of the portable wine glass. Paint the ball with Chalk Paint Sailing Sky and once dry apply a coat of Antique Mod Modge and cover in a coat of glitter.  Adhere to the stem of the wine glass and sprinkle Sparkling Dotties into the glass.

Step 6

Apply a bead of adhesive to the rim of the glass, center the tart pan over the rim of the glass before firmly placing together. Cut a piece of Crochet Ribbon 2 cm White 2Mtr Little Birdie and tie underneath the ball to cover the rest of the wine glass stem.

Step 7

Adhere Crochet Ribbon 7mm Blue 2Mtr Little Birdie around the bottom of the glass.

Step 8

I used cardstock holly leaves from my stash and pink flower from the Spring Serenade Blooms 10 pcs PBCI Holiday Elements and glued to the side of the snow globe. I also add a bit of glitter to the petals and center of the flower to finish it off.

And there you have it! One finished snowman snow globe!

Hope your holidays are wonderful, thanks for stopping by and enjoy creating!

 

Altered Snowman Box

Hi everyone! Tonya here with a fun altered box project just in time for Christmas.

I have a collection of cell phone boxes that I wanted to alter and I finally broke one out and decided to use some of my Little Birdie Craft stash to create a snowman theme gift box.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1

Gather the Tattered Lace and Tattered French Rose Mat Chalk Acrylic Paints, sponge brush and paint tray.

Step 2

Before painting the SmoothFoam 2″ Ball, lightly sand any ridges, apply two coats of  Tattered Lace paint and let dry.

Step 3

Apply two coats of  Tattered Lace to the Laser Cut Wreath and let dry.

Step 4

Lightly apply a coat of mint green chalk ink over the wreath. Next use the end of a paint brush and dip dot Tattered French Rose to create berries on the wreath.

Step 5

Fold the 4″ pastel pink doily in half and continue to fold until it looks like a fan. Run a bead of Zip Dry glue to the outer edge and sprinkle Vanilla Sparkling Dotties.

Step 6

Cut and glue patterned cardstock to cover verbiage on the lid. Next add white 4″ doily, the pastel pink doily and wreath to the lid.

Step 7

Cut two 4″ pieces of White Crochet Ribbon 2cm and tie together. This will be the snowman’s scarf.

Step 8

Before adding the scarf, glue two black Dew Drops and a carrot nose to the snowman head. Next apply Mod Podge to the whole head and sprinkle fine clear glitter and let dry. Now add Pink Ric Rac Ribbon 7mm trim to each side of the lid. Wrap each side of the lace scarf around the “neck” of the snowman.

Step 9

Loop and tie off cording and thread and glue under the lace scarf. Next deconstruct a mint green flower from the Spring Button Paper Daisies  and roll one of the flowers to create a bud and glue both to the side of the snowman’s neck along with holly leaf diecut.

Step 10

Draw a circle onto a piece of vintage sheet music, cut out, fold in half, roll to create a hat and glue together. Add a bead of adhesive around the bottom of the hat and sprinkle Vanilla Sparkling Dotties.

Step 11

Glue the hat to the snowman’s head and you are finished!

Now all I need to do is add a present and it will be ready to give as a gift…or maybe I will keep it??? Who knows!

Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

 

Hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
