Create some unbreakable snow globes for your tree this season.
“Snow” will settle into the base and disappear until ornament is shaken.
With the help of felt glue I whipped up all 3 of these in less than an hour.
Consider stitching the year on the base before attaching or throwing in some glitter for some added pizzazz.
They would also make really fun gift tags this year!
You will need:
Felt remnants in:
Gold – Egg Yolk (star, 1 base, window)
Deep Red – Beet (1 base, door, snowman gloves)
Deep Blue – Wild Blueberry (Cabin Globe body, snowman scarf, 1 globe base)
Light Brown- Mud Puddle (Cabin)
Green- Fresh Cut Grass (Christmas Tree, Woods)
White (Snowman, snow base, cabin roof)
Muted Green - Cilantro (Christmas Tree)
Black (Snowman hat)
Orange – Persimmon (Snowman nose)
Pale Blue – Sparrow (Snowman Globe body)
Light Blue - Ice (Christmas Tree Globe body)
Stuffing Beads (these can be a bit tricky to locate so I have listed a few bags on our store website)
Clear Vinyl 1/8 yard
Rick Rack or Ribbon for hanging
A sewing machine (although I suspect you could hand sew them)
Template (at bottom of post)
For each ornament you will need to cut 2 of the snow globe shapes.
1 snow piece and 1 snow globe base.
Attach a white snow piece to globe with felt glue and let dry for about 5 minutes
For Cabin globe glue down tree background first followed by brown cabin, snow roof and finally the window and door allow glue to dry.
Stack extra globe body behind decorated piece with ribbon or rick rack sandwiched in between and pin to hold.
Lay a square of vinyl slightly larger than your globe over top and sew down leaving bottom open. Don’t bother attempting to cut this to fit, a square shape will work just fine since it will be cut after it is sewn down.
Fill with desired amount of stuffing beads and sew bottom closed.
Clip away vinyl until it matches the shape of your snow globe.
Glue Snow globe base over vinyl at bottom and allow to dry.
For other globes:
Glue down snowman accessories and stack the Christmas tree pieces on on top the other.
Add details with embroidery thread using french knots and small stitches.
Glue tree base down onto snow, then tree and finally star allow to dry.
Glue snowman down and allow to dry.
Finish as shown above.
