DIY: Holiday Snow Globes

DIY // HOLIDAY SNOW GLOBES // Mocha & Moccasins

Every year when December rolls around, I make a list of tasks I want to accomplish, crafts I want to make and recipes I want to try. Even though I’ve been getting full-time hours at work, I’ve managed to follow through with many of the tasks, and one that I completed last weekend was the making of snow globes! They were on my list for years, ever since they started popping up on Pinterest and this was the year I finally decided to make them and they were a lot easier than I’d anticipated!

DIY Holiday Marbled Clay Bowls // Mocha and Moccasins

When I stumbled upon this tutorial on A Beautiful Mess (my favourite blog), I knew I had to make it immediately. I’m not usually like that with DIY projects – I’ll just pin them and never go back, but this one was a keeper. I forced my good friend Kathryn into making these with me and we made a few different bowls on a cold, snowy night and they were a success!

I wanted to make a holiday themed set, so I experimented with a candy cane look: red, green, white and my second bowl was a mix of holiday colours with red, green, white, lime green, silver and gold. The silver and gold added a really nice touch to the marbling!
