DIY glitter globe

It's December, which means...Christmas season has officially started in our household!

The tree is up, the wreath is on the front door, greeting cards are written, all ready to be sent, I'm singing Christmas carols incessantly to poor Alexander and I've started on this year's holiday craft - GLITTER GLOBES.
You'll need:

Plastic figurines
Spray paint (I used high gloss enamel)
Glass bottles
Baby oil
Glitter
Ribbon
Instructions:

1. Apply 5 coats of spray paint to figurines as per paint instructions. Allow to completely air dry.

2. Use hot glue gun to adhere figurines to lids of glass bottles.

3. Fill glass bottles with baby oil. Add glitter.

4. Screw lid onto bottles and glue ribbon to cover lid.

These are so gorgeous Trishie. I was planning on doing one of these on my blog next week, hope you don't mind. It won't be anywhere as lovely as yours, needless to say. Just so you know I always have problems commenting on your blog through bloglovin, so I am sorry if my comments are a bit hit and miss. Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog sweetie xoxo

Aren't you a clever missy... These are gorgeous and I love how the ribbon just covers up the fact that it was a regular glass container n now it's this beautiful snow globe.
