INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Wipe off the glass candlesticks and wine glass with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Paint the bodies of the snowmen in White Pearl and the top hats in Black Pearl. Allow to dry and apply a second coat. Let dry.
  2. When the snowmen are dry, paint carrot noses on their faces with a mix of (3) parts Bright Brass with (1) part Festive Red. Using Black Pearl, paint a set of eyes, mouth, and buttons. Add embellishments such as a scarf in Festive Red. (Optional: Adding a band around the hat and a holly leaves can add flair as well. Colors can vary.)
  3. Create the snow globe by turning the wine glass upside down on the cardstock and use to trace a circle. Cut the cardstock along the line drawn.
  4. Hot glue the tree to the center of the cardstock circle and set aside to dry. With the wine glass upright, add Styrofoam snow to about 1/4 of the glass. Add hot glue to the edge of cardstock circle and attach it to the lip of the glass with the tree on the inside. (Make sure the glue has made a seal around the lip of the glass before turning.) Let dry.
  5. Once the hot glue has dried, turn the wine glass over and hot glue the snowman to the top. Hot glue the other snowmen to the candlestick tops. Add a bow or other ornamentation to the base of the wine glass.
