✥ Snow Globe Ornament ✥

I've got another ornament for ya!
I pinned this awhile back, it's a snow globe ornament! So, so cute!
I have to use my rhino as a model, as alas, I cannot take my own picure while holding the ornaments.
 And believe me, I've tried!! {shaky, shaky}

Wanna make one?
I used clear glass ornaments from Michael's. This is a large ball, I got a box of four for 3$ {they were 50% off.} 
For the tree I used a little round bush you would buy for a Christmas village set, like for train set or whatev. I trimmed the shrub into a tree shape and trimmed the plastic base to fit into the globe, using regular scissors.
Then I used Epson Salt's for snow in the bottom of the globe and added some Martha Stewart glitter.
I added some white paint to the tips of the tree to make it look snow covered. {Although catching the detail on film may be beyond my photography skills!}

What about you all, are you pinning like crazy, or what? Have you made anything from Pinterest, latey? How about holiday crafts? 
Thanks for stopping by.

  19. Another gorgeous ornament! I just love these - and the photos with the rhino look so good!

  20. Wowza - so wish I could go out and get all the supplies to make these. Alas, I have put myself on a craft supply diet (in lieu of a Christmas cookie diet...though I'm not sure which is harder).

  21. Wow these are really cute! I like the epsom salt/glitter idea. Where did you get that gorgeous rhino? My daughter loves them!

  22. How cool is that?! Now, how do you get the tree to stand up in the salt? I feel like if I tried, mine would fall over. Thanks for linking up!
