Homemade Christmas Day 40: Custom Snowglobes

by GettingFreedom on November 16, 2012

By now y’all know my love for glass jars.  That my be why I love these custom snowglobes so much!

Creating your very own snowglobe is super easy, and fun to put together!  The possibilities are endless–and the price tag is small.  Not only are these perfect for gifts {think pictures, other family momentos}, they’re also a great addition to your Christmas Decor.

 

I added my DIY Snowglobes to candlesticks that I placed in a wooden box we created out of old barn wood.  It has an old time feeling, with some classy additions.  Perfect for my eclectic taste!
