Unexpected elements—like a pig with wings—add a touch of
whimsy.

Snow globes always bring memories of times gone by, of heartwarming holidays and favorite trips. We’ve taken that concept and put a touch of whimsy to it.

There are so many possibilities to the snow globe. Try putting in little souvenirs and start a collection of your own unique experiences, your very own story.

Snow globe materials:
Round glass vase
Silver tray
Fake miniature pine tree, pumpkins (find them at the nearest department store or bookstore)
Pieces of fake pine branches from an old wreath
Tree ornaments (Christmas balls, pinecones, etc.)
Fake snow (also available at the nearest department store or bookstore)
Fake moss
Floral foam
Glue gun
Knife
