The first thing I did was unscrew the lid off of the snow globe and remove the plastic insert. The only reason I did that was so that my tree would fit in the globe. If you wanted to make a traditional snowblobe with liquid inside, you would need to use that piece. For this particular diy, I decided not to use liquid. Next, I took one of my brush trees and glued it to the center of the lid. Dollar Tree has several different colors and sizes of these brush trees. I am loving the blush pink color this year so I went with the pink trees.

Next, I took my little foam snow pebbles and poured some in the globe. I would say a 1/4 cup or so. Then I screwed the lid back on the globe.

I had this pedestal on hand so went ahead and glued my globe onto it.

I wanted to cover up the lid of the globe so I took some velvet ribbon trim and wrapped that around the lid followed by another layer or ric rac.

To finish off my snow globe I added a white pom pom to the top and a wood slice to the bottom.

So, what do you think? Pretty stinking’ cute, right?

You all know I love me some scrap wood projects so I thought why not make a snowman now that we are approaching that time of year! I just happened to have the perfect pieces laying around for this. If you don’t, there are tons of different things you could use to make one similar to this such as, 2×4 boards, bricks, or even a sock! Use those creative minds! My dad has access to all kinds of scrap wood where he works so of course I take full advantage of that! HaHa!

The brim of the snowman’s hat was actually from an old little tree fence that i tore apart. I have had them sitting around for over a year and finally found a use for them!

First off, I painted the body of my snowman white and the pieces for the hat black. Once that dried I then hot glued my pieces together.

Next, I used a small spouncer to add the eyes and the blush for the cheeks. I didn’t push all the way down when I did the eyes as I wanted a bit of the white to show through. I painted the nose on myself using my “harvest orange” paint and a small paint brush. For the mouth I cheated and just used a black sharpie marker! So much easier then trying to freehand it with paint in my opinion! I also added some eyebrows with my sharpie!

I decided the hat needed spruced up a bit so I used 1 inch burlap tape and made him a hat band.

Next I added a couple black buttons and made him a burlap scarf! If you don’t have black buttons you could just use your spouncer and make black dots like we did for the eyes! Of course I had to add a little raffia bow to the hat too!
