Happy Wednesday Friends! I think I am in the small minority of bloggers who did not make a waterless snow globe during the Christmas season, although I did receive a lovely one. I thought it would be fun to make one for Valentine's Day, using some floating hearts I created with materials from my stash. Today I'll show you how to make both...
First, I cut an assortment of hearts from vintage sheet music and gold doilies. Next, I hot glued them to strips of sheer ribbon.
For the snow globe, I used a shorter length of ribbon. Measure it against the jar you use--it needs to be long enough to glue to the top of the lid, but short enough to lay right inside the jar, so that it doesn't drag against the bottom.
Here's how the lid looks with the ribbon attached.
Now, to add the arrow. I found these adorable wooden hearts and arrows in the bargain bins at--you guessed it--Target! I chose a gold one to add to the center heart.
Before returning the lid, I prepared the jar by adding some torn pieces of gold doily scraps...
...and pouring epsom salt on top. The gold doily gives a lacy appearance and a little sparkle to the "snow." Now I just needed to add the lid.
As a finishing touch, I glued tiny flower trim around the lid's edge--voila! See how the hearts appear to float?
Here are some other ways I used my floating hearts to add a romantic touch around the house. On my armoire...
...and to create Juliet's valentine skirt. See more of my dress up antics here.
Do you enjoy Valentine's Day crafts?
