mason jar snow globe part 1

Oh Anthropologie. You are my most favorite store ever in the history of retail shopping. Since I started shopping at you 8 years ago you have both brought me joy and pain while filling my closet and emptying my wallet. Every year at every gift giving holiday (Christmas, birthday, anniversary, Valentines Day) since i've been married all i've ever asked for are gift cards to you. You make shopping for me very easy. 

While browsing recently I saw these. Immensely charming and expensive. I've decided to try and knock off the design. I mean its really only small trees, mason jars, glitter and fake snow right? (I'm still working out exactly where to get that fake snow stuff).
Well, good news is they're coming along! I borrowed 2 mason jars from Travis' BBQ sauce making side job (yes my husband makes his own BBQ sauce and sells it as a hobby, it's really good stuff!). 
The small trees I picked up at the thrift store for .50 cents a piece. They are almost the perfect size and with a little glitter on them I think they may do the job. They're not done yet, but I think they'll turn out super cute! And for less than $1.00 a piece I can't complain. The medium sized Anthropologie jars are $30.00, yes THIRTY dollars each. Craziness!
Come back and see the finished product soon!
