Polymer clay Fimo Snow Globes





My last Christmas workshop yesterday was perfect. Nine children came and I was very impressed by their creativity! My last task for the year was to assemble my student's snow globes. It was a lot of work. I hope my students were half as excited about them as I was. Sometimes though, I wonder what I've gotten myself into! There are lots of great lessons out there to tell you how to make snow globes with baby food jars. However, I had always wanted to find "real" snow globes. I finally found the kits at National Artcraft. They come in several different sizes, and you can even add a musical component! I didn't use the rubber seal they provide because it was simply too hard to work with. I just made a base out of fimo and glued the student's projects with silicone glue (found at hardware stores, not craft stores). Supper-fine glitter works beautifully.
