All last week, in the Lone Star State, we were courting Springlike temperatures with a balmy 75 degrees.
My boys sauntered around in their shorts while my husband enjoyed a few paddle boarding sessions on the lake.
Well, Texas finally realized that it was the middle of December and the temperatures dropped to a chilly 33 degrees this morning (but nary a snowflake in sight.)
I live in an area that tends to be a bit “snow challenged” so I have had a great time playing around with fake snow this season. It’s basically just shiny shredded plastic in a bag but adds a bit of wintry fun to your projects.
I made the ubiquitous (waterless) snow globe out of an empty jar. I just painted the lid silver, added a miniature tree and a sprinkle of fake snow.
(I found the assortment pack of miniature trees at Home Depot for a few dollars less than at Walmart.)
After the snow globes, I started throwing the fake snow around other places. A platter with a few trees and a sparkly church ornament (with a crooked tower.)
The snow made its way into my little glass house. (I had a ton of trees I needed to find homes for.)
The goblet ended up being my favorite. (The little wooden Santa toy and plastic candy canes came from the thrift store.)
