Handmade ornaments and decorations

More Christmas decorations! For these I used a jar from Target, trees and bear from Michaels and little pine cones from outside. Everything is super glued to the lid.
For these above and below, I got these super cute small cake stands with lids from Michaels (they have a couple different sizes and are in with the miniature furniture and accessories--at least at my nearest Michaels). I used the Glitter snow as glue on the bottom and stuck everything in when it was wet. I then super glued the lid on. Below is the other side.

Below is the same thing but a lot smaller. The stump with squirrels is from Michaels. 
This little tiny ornament is also from Michaels. The bottom comes off and you can put things in it. It comes in two shapes and is very delicate! I broke 3!
Below is the same as the one with the stump in it. Everything from Michaels.
These would make super cute and easy gifts!

If I Lived in a Snow Globe Craft

We are doing this craft in Ava's class next week so I helped Emily make one as a sample. 

"If I were trapped in a snow globe"
"If I lived in a snow globe"
Google that to see all the cute ideas for it. 

The teacher had the kids bring in snow jacket, hats, mittens etc. and had them act out something  Ava chose running away from the Abominable snow man  and Emily chose being scared of the Abominable snowman although in her story she said she'd be friends with him:) Some kids wadded up paper and acted like they were throwing it (snowballs).

I used baby blue printer paper and glued the whole thing to cardboard (I want to keep this forever). I also used clear plastic plates from Smart & Final because the ones at the grocery store had a weird "scalloped edge, These plates are 7".
