I've always loved creating new snow globes each year around Christmas time. I had intended to show you all the different snow globes I've created as mentioned in my How To Create A Waterless Christmas Snow Globe post, but I decided instead to focus on one of my favorites. And that would be the vintage salt and pepper shaker snow globes.
Strange, I know, but oh so cute! They're like the perfect receptacle, if you will, for cute and tiny Christmas figurines. And I have some new ones I'd like to share with you today.
Here's a shaker with some faux snow, two teeny tiny bottle brush trees and a mini reindeer sitting atop the lid.
This one's filled with snow and a bottle brush tree. I decorated the outside of the shaker with a bottle brush wreath and tree on top with some jaunty red jute.
Another vintage shaker filled with snow and a bottle brush tree, topped off with a stag and an added green Christmas ball.
Here's another shaker filled with snow, bottle brush tree and a tiny white deer. Again I used a bottle brush wreath on the outside.
You can pick up the miniatures and faux snow at craft stores. I bought the vintage shakers for 50 cents apiece at Goodwill, and some newer shakers from the Dollar Store, again at 50 cents apiece. I keep an eye out for them all year round. I also used tiny glue dots to adhere the trees and deer inside of and on top of the shakers.
I had such a fun time filling these little salt and pepper shakers with my favorite Christmas goodies - bottle brush trees and reindeer! I can't decide on a favorite. What do you think? What would you put in yours?
I can't believe that Christmas is only 9 days away. I have a few more Christmas-related posts up my sleeve but whether I can get them ready in time or not remains to be seen. Right now my priority is turning the house upside down to find my Christmas card address book. I have a great card, but no addresses to send them to (other than close family). Yikes! Wish me luck!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my Vintage Salt and Pepper Shaker Snow Globes. Thanks for spending time with me today!
