Congratulations to Nathalie for guessing the quick craft correctly and winning a Starbucks gift card!

Here is what the final project looks like!

It’s a winter wonderland “snow globe”!

Little Miss is quite upset with me for calling it a snow globe. Mostly because she’s not allowed to pick it up and shake the wintery scene until it’s all a blizzard.

I am waiting for the day when I walk into the living room and find Little Miss perched, precariously on top of the book shelf with baking soda, snowy trees, and white rabbits strewn about her. #thisiswhywecanthavenicethings

Want the quick how to on this winter wonderland?!

All the supplies you need are…

  • a piece of wood
  • wintery things
  • baking soda & coarse salt
  • a fish bowl *minus the fish*

That’s all you need!!

{quick crafts with BC} step one

First, find the *magic* spot to place your winter wonderland scene. Ideally somewhere away from jam hands.

I think this was the hardest part of this project for me.

 

Once the perfect a good enough spot was found, I placed my piece of wood down.

You can use any shape or size piece of wood, it just depends on what you make your globe with. I had an extra circle board from Creating a Starry Night, so I chose that.

Second, I sprinkled the baking soda on the board.

You can make as deep of snow as you like.

Next step, set up your wintery scene in the snow.

 

Mine involved some snow dusted Fir trees, a truck, and some snow bunnies.

Now, you can take some coarse salt and dusted the scene.

You don’t have to do this; but when the light hits the salt it gives off a nice sparkle! Which could probably be achieved through glitter too; but glitter is the worst! Kidding, not kidding.

Lastly, you just set your fish bowl upside down over the scene!

You don’t have to use a fish bowl, lots of large glass containers could work.

I even used a mason jar to create a little winter wonderland to sit on the same ledge.
