Weekend Wonders #69 (plus features!)


Welcome to Weekend Wonders #69! We're so glad you're here to party with us tonight! Weekend Wonders #68 had so many fantastic people and projects. A great big Thank You to everyone who comes by and links up with us every week! You linkers never cease to amaze us with your creativity and skill. You all are so great!!

And a few of our favorites were... Christmas Printables!! 
 
 
A Typical English Home Brings us two fabulous printables for the holiday season. We have the Holiday Cleaning Checklist and the Letter To Santa Free Printable. Both so appreciated by these two busy Mommas! 
 
 
This Dear Santa: Kids Wish List Printable from Busy Mom's Helper is adorably simple in design and we love that it make the kiddos think of gifts that they really need as well as the newest toys.  
 
 
Printable Holiday Recipe Cards from I Should Be Mopping The Floor are perfect to have on hand to send guests away with recipes of your culinary brilliance. 
 
 
Free Printable: Christmas Gift Tags from The Grant Life make gift giving a fun and personal diy affair. We absolutely love the design here. Just print, cut, and attach with some baker's twine in fun Christmas colors. 
 
 
Another great option (and totally different design) are these Free Printable Gift Tags & Gift Card Holders from Second Chance to Dream. Gift cards are among some of the easiest gifting options these days but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be decorated too right? 
 
 
Advent calendars are so much for for kids and adults alike. If you don't have one already this year, here's a Free Advent Calendar Printable from Sweet Bella Roos
 
 
And last but not least we can't forget about printables for decorating. Here's over 10 free Christmas printables to decorate your home from Some Of The Best Things In Life Are Mistakes. We particularly like the chalkboard printables!
 
Fabulous stuff everyone! Don't forget to grab a feature button!

Kid Craft: Glitter Snow Globes

I made these fun Glitter Snow Globes for Sugar Bee Crafts a whole year ago! It's crazy that time has gone so fast! By the time I could publish them on my blog, it was too late for the season, so I decided to save them for this year!

These are so fun and easy to make! Here’s what you need:

snow globes supplies

Baby food jars with the labels removed (WD-40 is amazing at removing label residue! Also, I pre-spray painted the lids for the kids)
Glycerin – you can get this at any pharmacy
Glitter and Confetti
Waterproof ornaments
Hot Glue
E6000 glue
Water


First, glue the ornament onto the inside of the lid with hot glue. Definitely help your kids with that part if they are young. We don’t want anyone getting burned!

I had my kids hold the ornament in place for a few minutes until the glue was cooled off.

Next, fill up the jar half way full of glycerin – that’s the secret to getting the glitter to stay floating instead of falling straight to the bottom!

Then, add glitter and confetti. If you use confetti, just be sure it’s the metallic kind.

After adding the glitter and confetti, grab something to stir it all around really well. Otherwise, you might end up with glitter clumps.

Top the jar off with water. You want to fill it pretty full, but not so full that it over flows.

snow globes step 6


Before screwing the lid on, put some E6000 glue around the rim of the jar. That glue is amazing for stuff like this! I would recommend adult help with this part, too.

Finally, screw the lid on!

snow globes step 8


Leave the jar right side up until the glue dries. I would recommend waiting 24 hours at least. The glycerin and water will remain separated until you shake it for the first time. Then, it all gets mixed together really well!

Ta-da! All finished!
