Well the holidays are fast approaching and I wanted to share a little project I've been working on. It's inspired from my favorite store, Anthropologie. I thought I'd make mine with a glitter house.
Above are the Anthropologie version with trees inside.
I changed mine and added a vintage zinc lid. I love the more vintage look.
I bought a package of tiny trees from Michaels. The trees were green, I used straight bleach to dye them.
I created the little glitter house from a pattern I found online here. I scaled it down so it would fit inside the jar.
Here's what it looks like when you flip it upside down.
Then I added clear german glitter glass. If you use any other kind of glitter it sticks to the glass making it hard to see inside, so I splurged and bought the glitter glass.
What do you think? It took a bit of time, but I think it's kind of cute.
I'd like to make different sizes of these with a church and other houses, and will do it if I get the time. This was loads of fun, it looks great under low light. Maybe you'd like to give it a try! Or if you're interested in this one, check it out here.
