I know, I know.....It's not even Thanksgiving and I'm already talking about Christmas projects. The thing is, who has time to make Christmas decor in the middle of December? I don't know about you, but I'm usually frantically buying and wrapping presents in the middle of baking cookies all while trying to find time to relax and enjoy the season. This year, I'm going to try hard to get a few holiday projects knocked off the "To Do" list before December.
Today, I'm starting with a $5.00 thrifted glass dome cheese platter (cloche if you really want to get fancy) that I turned into a Christmas snow globe. I'm sure you have seen these little platters at Goodwill and other thrift stores before. I actually found three the day I bought mine.
SUPPLIES NEEDED TO MAKE SNOW GLOBE

- Glass Dome Cloche/Cheese Platter (Check thrift stores first)
- 4 inch bottle brush trees (Walmart has them for $.74 a piece)
- Elmer's craft bond spray adhesive
- Hot glue gun
You may remember the little red Mercury truck from last year. I found it at Walmart in the toy section and had fun using it in my holiday decor. This year, after finding the $5.00 glass and wood cheese platter at Goodwill I knew the truck would be perfect for making a winter snow globe.
Elmer's spray adhesive then sprinkled the flakes on top. This way they stuck to the bottom instead of spilling all over the table.
After the "snow" was in place I cut down two 4 inch bottle brush trees, hot glued them to the wood then set the truck in place. Easy, peasy.
Minus drying time, this project took all of 5 minutes to complete and less than $6.00 to make. It's a quick and easy project that would make the perfect addition to your Holiday decor.
