Christmas Craft – Mirror Snow Scene

I know most of my quilty friends are crafty in general, so I thought I’d show you a project that our family did yesterday to enliven Thanksgiving time together.

Ingredients:

  • Round mirror – I found some 7 inches and bigger at JoAnn’s
  • Black felt – cut and glue to underside of mirror so it won’t scratch furniture
  • Cotton balls – I shredded them a lot before putting them around the edge
  • Miniature trees and figures
  • Twigs
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Glitter glue
  • Snowy glitter
  • Scissors – for cutting felt
  • Q-Tips or Paintbrush

 How-To:

  1. Cut the felt to fit the mirror and glue to the bottom.
  2. Fluff and glue cotton around the outer edge.
  3. Glue trees and figurines as desired.
  4. Glue twigs around the outside if desired
  5. Paint glitter glue on areas that you want to look snowy
  6. Sprinkle glitter over a large box or container to catch the excess
  7. Let dry

Enjoy!

May your spool be endless,

    That’s is lovely. I think i might have to make one. Especially like the pecan pie in the glitter box! Happy holidays.

    This is so sweet, Letty, and it truly evokes memories from the past. Your elk reminds me of the plastic figurines we enjoyed as kids. Thanks for sharing !
