"Christmas in a Canister" revisited...is it a sign or a snow globe??


Chipping with Charm:  Christmas in a Canister...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/

I shared this idea a while back...maybe you remember it?

I called it Christmas in a Canister...for lack of a better name.  I can't really figure out what exactly it is...

...a glass flat sided canister, some snow and a rolled up piece of sheet music.

And of course a little embellishment...does that surprise you?  I like that the keys say "star"...did you notice?

This time I made some little "baby" ones too.

And then I brought them to our booth at Antiques Downtown.

So what do you think it is?  A sign?  A snow "canister"?  Not sure, but the last time I made them (for a different shop) they sold out fast...we'll see :)

I'll be working at the shop tomorrow...we'll be adding some "twinkle".  I'll try to remember to take some better pictures to show you...

Chat soon,

  3. Those are very unique. You're so creative! I really like the blu-ish glass. They would add a lot to a mantle with some tall candles and a few pine cones!

    Blessings to you,

  9. Laurel,
    These are simple but make a big impact. I can see why they would sell quickly. This was a great idea.

  12. Found a clip about these on I Love That Junk & I have had a set of these canisters FOR-EVER and was thinking of dumping out the old pastas & donating them to the Salvation Army, but I love this idea! Mine have a metal lid with a heavy duty wire handle, so it works out great for adding trinkets! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
