Mickey Snowman Faux Snowglobe

I've made a few of these faux snow globes in the past - they are just so darn cute!  My latest version happens to be Disney related.  Shocking, I know.

In past posts, I've shared how I've made Christmas tree ornaments out of Disney antenna toppers.  On one of my trips to Disneyland last month, I spotted this super cute Mickey Snowman antenna topper, so I bought a couple of them to make into Christmas tree ornaments.  But, then I got the idea to use it in a faux snowglobe!

To make the snowman and trees stand up a bit from the bottom so they wouldn't be covered by the fake snow, I hot glued them to corks and then hot glued the entire piece to the bottom of the jar (I used an old spaghetti sauce jar and spray painted the lid).


Then, just add fake snow!  I was able to adjust the placement of the snow by slightly shaking the jar and swirling the jar until I got the snow placed just how I wanted it.

This little snowglobe found it's way to it's new home with my awesome friend Brenda at Chatting Over Chocolate.  But, it's so cute that I think I'm going to get another snowman antenna topper to make one for myself.  :)
