Snow Globe Snowmen

My snow globe snowmen began like this...

fish bowls, Epsom salt, and assorted supplies from my workshop.

The inspiration for my snowmen came from Laurel at Chipping With Charm

She made the most adorable Canning Jar Snowmen I've ever seen!

I couldn't wait to give them a try with a few supplies from the dollar store and my workshop.

The dollar store fish bowls came in 2 sizes and were perfect for this project.

I filled the fish bowls with Epsom salt then threw in a few wooden black discs for buttons and eyes and a piece of cinnamon stick for a nose. 

I used E6000 glue to hold the fish bowls together and to a slice of cedar for the base.

Another snowman I filled with Mercury glass beads on the bottom and topped him off with an aluminum coffee pot top as a hat. 

Ribbon for the scarves and my little snowmen are ready for the shop!
