Floating Hearts Snow Globe

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?

  7. Your floating hearts are so cute.

    Seeing them hanging in the jar reminds me that somewhere I have a lid with a hanger on it and I need to find it for Valentine decorating.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

  11. Juliet is quite a fetching young lady. Too cute decorations for her.
    loved your waterless snow globe. It is very pretty and looks simple and quick to make. Wish I had some music to use.
    Right now all I seem to do is physical therapy exercises to get my shoulder/arm working right and those exercises I have to do at outpatient pt are not fun, they hurt. Had right shoulder replaced on 12/7, that was easy part, this part is not but if I want to be able to use my arm normally after this have to knuckle down to business. Have 3 more weeks of pt left so my time is running out.
    Have wonderful weekend. Happy daze
