I love to make things.
Things that sparkle, have a hint of old, and are just unique.
I love the way it looks when you stand back and see the finished product.
It is what we create that helps show off a little part of who we are.
“17 How precious are your thoughts about me,[b] O God.
They cannot be numbered!
18 I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!”
What a beautiful site it is to know that the Lord of all lords knows every detail about his creation and made each of us exactly who we are.
What have you created lately?
Make each thing your own. For the Lord created you to be YOU!
Want to make your own Snow Globe?
– Glycerin (found at your local Walmart next to the bandaids & neosporin)
– Distilled water
– Little Christmas trees & figurines (you can get these at any flea market or in the small Christmas village section at Walmart)
– Mason Jar with a good suctioned lid (if you are wanting to put water in them); the old mason jars are great for the look but if you are wanting to put water in them you may want to get the newer jars which you can get in the canning section at Walmart)
To make the jars, simply hot glue the figurines to the bottom of the jar or the lid depending if you are making it up right or upside down. Then add water to the jar with a couple teaspoons of glitter (you can really use however much you want). Stir the glitter real well and then add about 5-6 drops of glycerin (it’s ok to add liberally). Make sure you stir real well. Then place the lid on the jar and shake real well. Now, you may want a towel just in case it leaks (as some of ours did). The general idea worked out really well. The above jar was done without water which is a great option to. The only difference with the dry Snow Globes is you don’t add the glycerin or the water. You still add glitter or whatever else you would like to make it your own!
