Snow Globe Fun with Mini Dog Figurine!

Tonight I went to a snow-globin' craft party!  Here is my finished project.


It didn't quite turn out as planned...there is no water or snow to shake!  After seeing a fellow crafter attempt the water thing, I decided I was going to stick with this idea since I didn't want to risk damaging Sebastian's homemade Sculpey figurine!!


It was a little tricky making something this small, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.  I used a picture of Sebastian for the shape, added the scarf, punched eyes in with a nail and used a black dot of clay for the nose.  Oh, then I added hair by scratching the entire figure with a nail.  Here he is sitting in a pan ready to bake.


Then I headed on over to the craft party where there were allllll kinds of things to add to the snow globes.  First I chose a baby food jar.  I arranged some cotton balls on the lid for snow, picked a tree and a present for props, and then glued everything down.  



I added a few snowflakes with some glitter on my props.  I wiped glue on the bottom of the jar with a brush, sprinkled some glitter snow on that, and voila!  My little snow globe wannabe is done! 


I think I'll put it in the window sill.


2 DAYS LATER
I got brave and added water.  It was beautiful...for about 10 minutes!

Hi! :D I just happened to stumble across this beautiful website. I must say I love your dog! What breed is he?
Anyway, I read the last part, where you added the water. You may have already done this, but if you haven't, here's a better way of getting the water part thing :)
1. Fill the jar halfway with normal tap water.
2. Add 2 tablespoons of glycerine and stir
3. Add 'Snow' Hope I helped! :D
