@EcoMonster Snow Globe Yelp Event

This past Sunday I got the chance to check out EcoMonsters new store space and participate in their Yelp Event. There are many of these events going on around the area through mid December, including another I will be going to where you can make your own bottle cap earrings! At the EcoMonster event we got to make cute snow globes out of mason jars and a bunch of little trinkets including trees, bells, sea creatures, angels, elves and all sorts of other things.

You select a jar, then pick out your decorations and hot glue them to the inside of the lid, see my work in progress photos:



Then you fill your empty jar with ‘snow’, water and a few drops of glycerin. Carefully turn your lid upside down and tighten the lid to the jar then hot glue gun the edge to prevent leaking. The last step is to decorate the outside of your jar and you are finished!

Check out my finished snow globe, it ended up having an ocean seahorse theme to it.



I really had fun, these events are great for anyone who likes to get crafty but does not want to buy all the supplies each time for what you want to do. Also great for kids and adults alike, a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Be sure to see if there are any Yelp Events in your area and try one out! Thanks for stopping by!

Etsy #CraftParty at @EcoMonster

I signed up for this year’s Etsy Craft Party that was hosted by a cute shop in downtown San Jose called EcoMonster.

If you are unfamiliar with Etsy Craft Parties check out their site for details. There were a bunch going on in the Bay Area last night.

While I was there I got handy with some string thread again and made myself this cute little Apple fabric/felt pin:

If you also went to a Craft Party yesterday, where did you go and what make? Or maybe it was a supply swap, find any hidden gems?

Hope everyone local to the Santa Clara, CA area will stop by the MidSummer Art Fair, I will be there with a booth!
