WINTERLAND SNOW GLOBE NECKLACE


SNOW GLOBE NECKLACE
All through out the year I really enjoy creating these wooden necklaces. The Winterland Snow Globe Necklace was especially fun to make! This particular one only uses a single RUBBERMOON STAMP.
BACK OF NECKLACE
The back of the necklace is covered with a small piece of Christmas Paper to give it a Festive Appeal. Below is a short list of supplies needed to make this Snow Globe Necklace.
SUPPLIES

1) Tiny Snow Globe Stamp
2) White Gesso
3)  Liquitex Matte Varnish
4) 24 inch Ball Chain Necklace-Copper
5)  1 Copper bail
6) One Small Wooden Craft Disc
7) Sharpie Water Based Paint Marker - White
8) Graphite Sketching Pencil
9) E-6000 Easy Hold Adhesive
10) Acrylic Paint- Colors of Your Choice
NECKLACE  MATERIALS


GESSO FIRST




APPLY  SNOW GLOBE STAMP ONTO PREPARED WOODEN DISC



PAINTING THE FRONT OF NECKLACE
The first step to this fun Holiday Project is to Gesso the Small Wooden Craft Disc with a Coat of White Gesso.  When dry to touch, it is time to apply the Tiny Snow Globe Stamp to prepared disc.  Using your choice of color (I used Naples Yellow),  paint the sides of disc and background behind Snowglobe. Follow up by painting the Snow Globe itself.  After the paint has dried, use the Sharpie Paint Marker to dab little Snow flakes inside of the Globe.  You might want to test this out on a scrap piece of paper before dabbing on the Globe itself.
DECORATE BACK OF DISC
Using any Christmas Paper of your choice, paste a small piece to the back of the Wooden Disc. Sand lightly around sides until smooth to touch. Using the Graphite Pencil, sketch around the edge of front and back of Disc to give it a worn "Vintage" appeal.  Give Painted Wooden Disc at least 2 coats of Liquitex Matte Varnish, applying with a small brush. Use Heat Blower to dry or let dry naturally for several minutes.
  
GLUE BAIL TO BACK OF NECKLACE
 
Using the E-6000 Easy Hold Adhesive,  apply a small amount to back of Copper Bail and attach to back of Wooden Disc where the top of the necklace will appear on front side.  Let dry and then slide Copper Chain through loop on Bail.
The Winterland Snow Globe Necklace is now ready to wear. These make great gifts or stocking stuffers for the Season.
 Till Next Time- BARB

LET IT SNOW !!!!!!!

  5. Sweetly nostalgic for those of us of (ahem) a certain age, growing up with snow globes. For Californians, they were about as close as we got to a white Christmas. Fun project, thank you. xo
