How is your hop so far? I'm so lucky to be doing this with some seriously talented ladies!! Once again, if you're here for the first time, you need to start at Lisa's blog and then come through. I'd hate for you to miss out on the awesome blog candy she's giving away.
Ok, so I know I said no more ornaments, but I have to have another one. I use ornaments for more than just tree decorating (and you'll see that in a later post.... oooh, something to look forward to) and they're a HUGE part of my Christmas season.
So, what did I do today? Snow! It doesn't snow in South Alabama (though with how wonky it's been with the weather, you never know what this year will bring!!) I have snow today.
What you'll need:
Clear Glass ornament (I used round)
Ribbon or fabric
You're going to want to run your epsom salt (and you don't need a lot) in a coffee grinder. I used a baby bullet becuase it's what I have available to me. and I blended until it looked like snow. Then I took a funnel and filled the ornament only a litlte ways. surprisingly it gets heavy, and the thingie can and will pull out of it. Ask me how I know. So, keeping with the country theme, I added more homespun fabric.
My daughter said you could turn this into a melted snowman by adding little polymer clay beads and a polymer clay "carrot" nose. I agree with her! It would totally rock that way, and be super cute!
Ok, question of the day: What is your ideal snow day? Mine is it snows on Christmas only and then is a beautiful 74* for the rest of the year.
