We already had the lamp part made and it had been filled with other things in the past. But my sis-in-law and I were talking about it after Thanksgiving and she suggested I fill it with red Christmas balls. I didn't end up with enough to add, so . . . I did something different. I had seen many different "snow-globes" the people had made on Pinterest. Some had used fishbowls and other jars. That's what gave me the idea.
First I put some batting in to keep things up a little. Next I put some of the "fake snow" you can get at any craft store. This wasn't much, just enough to cover the top of the batting and give it some "sparkle." Next came the lighthouse and trees. I sprayed the outside of the jar with "santa snow" so that it would look like it was snowing. The back of the jar I sprayed heavier, while the front was just a light snow so you could still see inside.
What do you think? Doesn't it sort of look like it's snowing inside? Have you ever made a "snow-globe" jar or something?
