A SNOWMANS CHRISTMAS

A SNOWMAN 'S CHRISTMAS

When I saw this cute terrarium last year ,sorry can't remember the blog.
I knew I had to make this.
This one is made of old windows and looks quite large.
Now I had this terrarium , soooooo.......

I first constructed this snowman out of paperclay.
Then painted him with my craft paints. My snowman stands 5 inches tall.

My terrarium is 12 inches by 14 inches.
I laid faux snow in the bottom and added some snow flakes.
Then painted the paper mache house blue, then added the glitter and some snow to the rooftop.
added a gold bottle brush tree and then spayed snow onto the rooftop of the terrarium.

There you have it. I have it sitting on a shelf in my family room for everyone to see as they
enter.
Be sure to come back and see my the rest of my Christmas Home Tour.
Thanks for coming  by and having a peek at my Christmas Terrarium.

  3. Linda, I've been wanting to make one of those for years. My friend found some old windows on the side on the road. I scooped them up, but then realized it was a little more work than I thought. So.... I will admire yours from here.
    Love Claudie

  4. Linda I like your display, your snowman although 5" tall, looks like it took a lot of detail work. Good job!
