CELEBRATIONS: Animal Snow Globe

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comThere have been a couple of trends that I love in the crafty world – snow globes made from jars and painted plastic animals. I decided to combine the two into a holiday stacked animal snow globe.

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comBecause why shouldn’t a giraffe be stacked on a polar bear on top of an elephant while celebrating the Christmas season?

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comEach animal was painted in gold craft paint and then hot glued together.

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comThe little wooden angel rests on top of the polar bear heralding in the season and the elephant carries a tiny wooden present.

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comBoth the angel and wooden present have been in my stash for probably 20 years…

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comThe original crafty creators of the jar snow globe and the painted plastic animals were brilliant! I’ve seen hundreds of different projects using these ideas but I have know idea who originally came up with the idea. Let me know if you know the original creators.

Thanks for visiting.
