I recently showed how to make "your own" glass bulb ornaments and shelf decorations. I showed a selection of the orbs you can use thinking anyone could come up with what to fill them with. Well, some of my readers mentioned they were having trouble finding the right kinds and sizes of things to put inside. So I guess this is sort of a part 2 post. Small Christmas Figurines for Snow Globes. I have worked at presenting items tiny enough, but interesting as well, so everyone can find something they want to use. Here is a variety of micro landscape personalities that we sometimes recognize with fondness, and many that are just fun. I noticed it is hard to nail down the actual size, but these all come across as petite enough but not to little for our DIY project. Oh, any and all of these could be used as is just sitting around your location. Just imagine your desk at work and the positive notice you would receive.
All the tiny sculptures I found were excellent for use in all kinds of holiday home decor ideas. They are little enough to fit into a petite jar, or even be glued onto one for a lid handle. They say they are for mini garden views, dollhouse, mini landscaping and plant decoration, but I promise you they will work wonders in the DIY snow globe project as well. Lots of variety here to choose from. They will fit nicely in almost any project you have at hand. These come in sets giving multiple choices. You can start with the 60s stars of that holiday special, or some of the new faces that your children(and adults) will love. I saw Youkon Cornelius, Charlie-in-the-box Hermey the elf that wants to be a dentist and all their friends. And then there are little bears, fawns, lambs, squirrels, monkeys, rabbits, and gift wrapped boxes. You can't miss with some of these choices.
Cute and diversified, these micro statues are tiny enough to do the job. As always, I look for products with high user ratings and mix in one or 2 new items as well. Please make sure you rate the ones you buy for next year's readers. If you are a Do It Yourself-er, or just like to decorate in a unique manor you will find the right stuff here. Try it, you'll like it.
