I've loved creating snow globes in jars this holiday season and wanted to try a new approach for the blog event today, so I've used a lovely galvanized acrylic cloche to contain my winter scene. These are the easiest, funnest things to make and a perfect craft for the kiddos.
As an added extra and because they look so cute together, I used a small Melissa Frances glass bottle to create a tiny ornament, embellishment, decoration, etc. I added a bit of the same faux snow and chunky glitter before popping in my tiny bottle brush tree. They fit perfectly snug inside these tiny bottles. I ended by adding more beautiful seam binding and sugared berries. I purchase all of my seam binding from Needle Traditions....they have the most beautiful colors!
