My contribution to the Pintester Movement 2.0 This is where I attempt a pin already attempted by the great and powerful Pintester, Sonja Foust.
So I decided to try this pin: Stemware snow globes from Family Chic
If you would like to see the Pintester take on this pin head over there and see it! Just follow this link!
Wet sand. …
No doo dads.
We decided to stop and build some nice sand animals, then we put some of it in a ziplock, looked around the rocks that were still dry and managed to find some other objects appropriate for a sand globe.
I went through all the stuff in my bag, trying them out to see if they fit inside the glass and if I liked how they looked. In the end I chose a small piece of beach wood, some shells and seaweed.
I then traced the wine glass on the plastic (and yes I had to do this upside down because the glass was full of shells and sand) and cut out the circle. I placed the wood piece and seaweed and attached it with epoxy.
(Oh, …did I not mention I was out of glue for the glue gun? Yup. No glue. But I did have left over 5 minute epoxy so I decided to use that)
I didn’t get a picture of the seaweed and wood glued to the plastic top but that’s probably just as well because when I tried to glue it to the top of the glass they fell off and landed in the sand.
Apparently I didn’t let it dry long enough or something.
It also would have been better if things would have stayed where I put them but…yeah.
And please ignore the plastic overhang (underhang?) on the bottom.
I also miscalculated, apparently. It may or may not have had something to do with tracing it upside down.
Just remember to take the candle off first because if it falls on the floor it can roll really quickly away from you and also get a big ugly dent. Not that I have any first hand experience with that or anything…
