Decorating a Snowman Terrarium Directions
I went shopping and found the terrarium, snowmen and glittery floral picks, all at the Dollar Tree.
I poured some glue in a cup and added some glitter and confetti, making sure to mix it up good!
I used a brush to dab the mixture onto the inside of the terrarium.
Don’t forget the rim! Then just let it dry overnight.
Once dry, I poured white acrylic paint into the terrarium and swirled it around.
*This is a good time to wipe the excess paint off the outside, that may have dripped out.
Then set it aside to dry…again, this will probably be overnight.
I used Mod Podge and dabbed the side of the terrarium and added more glitter, to give it a nice frosty look. Pour the excess glitter back into the container.
Look at that beautiful frostiness!
Now it’s time for the snowman. I don’t like the tab at the top of the ornament and decided to remove it. I didn’t want it to look like an ornament.
It’s a plastic ornament. I cut the excess plastic down using my wire cutters.
I added hot glue and a small gold jingle bell.
I used Mod Podge and brushed it around the bottom of the jingle bell, to hide the jagged edge from where I cut the ornament.
Then, I poured fine silver glitter over and now it looks like it always should have been that way!
I trimmed down the floral picks to make them the size I needed.
I glued in the snowman and the picks. Don’t worry if glue is showing…we’ll take care of that!
I used white paint and covered up any glue left showing. Then, I let it dry and went over it with Mod Podge and sprinkled it with glitter.
How cute is that?!?!
I used glue and put it around the loop and sprinkled it with silver glitter too!
I added a gold ribbon to hang it.
Think about all the places you can hang it from! The mantel, a light fixture, and…YES…the tree! It has a flat bottom so it can be set down on a side table too.
