Mini Snow Globe Charm

Mini Snow Globe Charm

As soon as I saw the adorable snow globe charm cre­at­ed by Mar­got Pot­ter I knew I had to make one of these lit­tle cuties. Although, I cre­at­ed some­what of a Texas sized ver­sion. I love wear­ing big chunky charms and thought this would make for an adorable hol­i­day piece to wear on a sim­ple sil­ver or ball chain style neck­lace.

Close Up

I pret­ty much cre­at­ed my charm exact­ly as Mar­got,  although I did­n’t have to trim off the top of a bot­tle brush tree as I had one that was super small and fit inside my bot­tle per­fect­ly. All I need­ed to do was snip off the wood­en base of the tree using wire cut­ters.

Sup­plies Used: 2″ Glass Bot­tle with Cork (Tim Holtz), .75″ Mini Glass Bot­tle with Cork (Maya Road), Tin­sel Trim, 1″ Bot­tle Brush Tree (Hob­by Lob­by), 2 Mini Eye Screws (Tim Holtz), 4 Tee­ny Tiny Sil­ver Jin­gle Bells, Vin­tage Mica, Shaved Ice (Stam­p­en­dous), Strand of 5 Crys­tal Baubles, Jump Rings, Nee­dle Nose Wire Cut­ters

Large Charm

To cre­ate the larg­er bot­tle I placed a small amount of vin­tage mica inside then insert­ed the bot­tle brush tree so it would rest on top of the mica. My tree fits quite snug­gly so there was no need to add adhe­sive to the bot­tom of my tree. This one is not mov­ing a bit. Next I wrapped some tin­sel just below the lip of the bot­tle and secured it in place with a dou­ble knot. I then insert­ed an eye screw to the top of the cork and attached a jump ring with a tee­ny tiny sil­ver jin­gle bell to it.  Bam first charm com­plet­ed just that fast.

Small Charm

Since I don’t wear dan­gle ear­rings I thought it would be cute to add a small snow filled charm along­side the mini snow globe charm. To cre­ate the small­er charm I placed a small amount of shaved ice inside the small­er bot­tle. I then wrapped some tin­sel just below the lip of the bot­tle. To secure the tin­sel in place I tied a dou­ble knot. I then insert­ed an eye screw to the top of the cork and attached the strand of 5 crys­tal baubles with 3 tee­ny tiny sil­ver jin­gle bells ran­dom­ly attached to the jump rings between the baubles.  Next, I attached the strand of crys­tal baubles and mini bot­tle to the jump ring of the larg­er bot­tle.

To give this piece a dou­ble charm look I attached a jump ring between the sec­ond and third charm above the small­er bot­tle. Now go make you one, you’re gonna love it.
