Okay, it’s not really a snowglobe. What do you call it?? A pretty glass thing that LOOKS like a snow globe. With no snow. Or globe. But, Somewhere Over the Rainbow and the non globe pair beautifully together, don’t you think?
Saint Patrick’s Day is coming soon. Can you believe February is over?? Ack!! Anyways, I’m not one for green. (Unless it’s money.) Or gold. (Okay, that’s not true…I’ll take gold jewelry.) Or funny little men. Or most of the things needed to create St. Patrick Day themed projects.
But…I do love rainbows. And those are kind of St. Patty’s day themed?? And the Great and Powerful Oz movie is coming out soon. Can’t wait for that! So, my wee little brain had a moment the other night when I was laying in bed sleeping. (Let’s note that you can’t think and sleep, thank goodness. Just in case you didn’t catch that little bit of humor.) And this little craft is the result…
The WHAT WHAT:
Snow globe or other clear glass globe shaped thing. (I used something intended for an air plant)
bit of ribbon or string (to tie your rainbow to the globe)
hot glue gun
The How How:
1. First thing you want to get going is your rainbow and label. Form some clay snakes and then put them together into a shape. Form a label in the shape you want. Be sure to put the word Somewhere on it!
2. Bake the clay according to instructions. Let cool.
3. Paint the rainbow and label.
4. Pull a cotton ball in half, rough it up a bit, and glue a half onto each side of the rainbow.
5. Glue a strip of ribbon on to the back of your rainbow. Glue that to the top inside of your globe.
6. Glue the label to the top of your globe.
7. Cover the bottom of your globe with glitter.
Note: I set my globe on top of a candlestick because it looks cool. Just an added bonus.
