Snowman Hurricane Glass

Publication2

Use an old or new Hurricane Glass to make this really cool snowman. If you finish it with varnish you can actually use this to put a candle in or use it on a base light. A small push light would work also.

Use acrylic white and blot it on the inside of shade not making a solid thick cover. This allows the light to shine through with a unique snow appearance.

Paint a nose, mouth and eyes in acrylic paint on the outside. Cover with a varnish inside and out and you are ready to go. Add a decorative bow. What a great decoration that you can easily make yourself.

 

Old Spoons Get Garden Repurposing

If you do not have old spoons, cheap ones (10 for $1.00) are available at discount department stores and used ones can be obtained at thrift/yard sales. This would also make a great gift for someone: A spoon and packet of seeds with variety, some miracle grow, bulbs, rhizomes, and hand garden tools all put into a small basket with a bow.
