Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

It's day two at Unrulies "12 Days of Christmas Link Up" party and it's great to see lots of crafters coming together to have fun.

Today my project is an easy but fun project. I made these a few years ago and they were a hit at a Christmas boutique I was involved in so I thought I would make some up for some of my co-workers.
My Snow Globes are made from salt and pepper shakers and tiny jars. The salt and pepper shakers I got at the 99 cents store. I bleached out my little bottle brush trees and some I sprayed with Lindys Stamp Gang sprays, pink, blue, green etc. others I just left white. Rubbed glue all over and sprinkled Diamond Dust on top. Attached my sentiment and then inserted and glued in jar or shaker. Added mica, artificial snow and tiny gold stars in the bottom.
For the lid on the jars I used a large crystal bauble from my stash and glued it down, then embellished it with Christmas florals, tulle, pearls etc. 
For the salt and pepper shakers  I ran jute through the holes in the lid and added a bauble to hang on the tree. Very simple but so pretty. I hope you join in on the creative fun with our "12 Days of Christmas Link Up". 
Wishing you Peace and Love this Christmas Season. xoxo Toni
