DIY Snow Globe Necklace

  After you deck your halls, why not deck yourself with a tiny wearable snow globe?  In just a few simple steps with you can turn a mini-tree into an attention grabbing necklace sure to garner compliments throughout the holiday season.  Make a pair of festive matching earrings and you're ready to hit the holiday party scene in style.

 You will need:
2" mini glass jar with cork topper
2 1" mini glass jars with cork toppers
Tinsel trim
Mini tree
Tulip Fashion Glitter in multi ultra fine crystal

Aleene's Tacky Glue
3 mini eye screws
2 earring wires

Step two: Use chain nose pliers to secure tree on bottom of jar.  Step three: Shake glitter into jar.  Step four: Add glue to cork, insert.  Add glue to screw and use chain nose pliers to twist into cork.  Let dry. Step four: Wrap and knot tinsel trim around rim of glass jar.  Step six: Make some matching glitter earrings and attach jewelry findings with chain nose pliers.
Now that's what I call quick and easy!

This is just too darned cute! I think that I would make little snowglobe ornaments for the tree. I can think of all sorts of little miniatures that would look great in these wee bottles. So clever! Enjoy the day, Miss Madge! Erin
