12 Days of Home for the Holidays Welcomes Jenni Bowlin
Jenni BowlinAfter years of collecting everything vintage Christmas, I found myself with a large hoard – too large in fact that I felt it was shameful not to sell it or share it in some way. That particularly year, 2011, I had signed up for a large Christmas show in town for the first time. This forced me to evaluate my stash, trying to come up with some creative ideas to re-purpose all of my tiny Christmas treasures into something new. This is when I made my first snowglobe – and I’ve been making them ever since.
Each year there is always a new twist (this year I have been playing with sliced wood bottoms and moss)
Just how I like it. They have been a great success at the show each year. There is nothing like putting time, effort and soul into something and having someone else appreciate it. A sale is the ultimate reward!but the final product is always clean and simple.
Making your own is easy. Just gather a plate for the base, a glass dome (overturned candle holders work well for smaller versions), fake snow, a glue for slick surfaces and vintage content. Glue your objects to the center of the plate, let dry, add some snow, and glue on glass dome. It’s that easy!
I look forward to “snowglobe season” every year and hope to offer a class at our Vintagefest event next year. In the meantime, I always offer several completed versions on my website, jbsmercantile.com every December 1st. Can’t wait until the first? Want to snag one for free? Follow me on Instagram (Instagram/jbowlin7) and leave a comment on my post today, (December 4th). We will choose a number at random from the total number of comments to select the winner. Good luck!
