Anthro inspired DIY globes.

November 17, 2012

When it comes to the holidays I find myself stalking Pinterest for inspiration on ways I'd like to decorate and bring in some flavor. I came across the infamous Anthro inspired snow globes many times as I'm sure a lot of you have too; around the 37th time I realized I needed to make it for myself but in my own style.

Christmas around here isn't super calm or a white winter wonderful. We have pops of color and an overall eclectic feel, I would say. I conveniently snagged a Target catalog with a few coupons Saturday morning and saw darling small felt trees in a multi colored scheme. At the very back of the catalog were coupons, one buy 3 ornaments get one free. A little back story: the night before I was irritated with the 3 candle sticks as the center piece on the dining table. I couldn't quite bring in the Christmas feel in the way I wanted so when I saw this coupon I knew I was headed to Target to make my Anthro inspired snow globes.

mason jars
c/o but you can purchase a flat at Walmart for $9
small trees
Target- $3/each
glue gun
styrofoam pebbles
Hobby Lobby $1.99 but you can a get 40% off coupons on their website

This took me all of 5 minutes to complete. It was under $15 and it's something I can keep around for many years! They're adorable, vibrant and festive; just what I'm looking for!

What's a holiday craft you'll be making you've seen on Pinterest?

P.S. Please ignore how horrendous my nails look. They are going to be freshened up shortly!
