    Snowglobes! New Miniature Furniture & Holiday Miniatures Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Gifts/Decorations, Giveaways, Miniatures, Newsletters, Sale, Teri Calia

    Joy Snowglobe by Teri Calia

    Aw… such a fun, colorful little display in a snowglobe — I love using the snowglobes and other acrylic jars as domes to display scenes at Christmas.

    And using the little slices of Peppermint Cane to cover the roof and make a path through the snow to the Gingerbread House is too cute! (Note: That Gingerbread House is part of today’s new sale!)

    For those of you interested in making your own waterless snowglobes I’ve assembled a few tips on turning a boring globe on a white plastic base into a fabulously festive globe on a pedestal…

    Teri provides some hints on camoflaging the plastic base with greenery in her blog post. See everything from her supply list. AND see below in the Giveaway section for ANOTHER project by Teri! Plus the FREE Gift today includes a snowglobe!


     

    Inspired by Teri’s artwork: a new FREE gift kit!

    UPDATED Friday, December 8th: The Snowglobes are SOLD OUT! I am substituting another cute clear acrylic dome/jar for the gift kits. And I have changed the dates this gift kit is available to end on SATURDAY night (12/9/17). There will be a new gift announced in Sunday’s newsletter. Thanks.

    Snowglobe FREE Mini Gift Kit Yay! Make a little scene in a snowglobe like Teri’s… with lots of options for sparkly Winter-inspired glitter! I’m including one of the DIY Snowglobes and a small baggie each of the 3 colors of glitter shown! (One is a custom mix!)
