Gibbs 12 days of Christmas - day 5

On the fifth day of Christmas I made Renee a polar bear snowglobe with dangling jingle bells.

I saw a similar craft item in Michael's with a snowman and could not resist putting these two playful polar bears in the snow.  The polar bears are actually ornaments ( I just cut the gold strings off) and tied a ribbon around there necks.  I used some epoxy to glue the polar bears down into the apothecary jar.  The snow that theyare playing in is actually styrofoam that I grated.  I tied a ribbon around the top (to hide the glue that seals the jar closed) and the bottom.  There are three red jingle bells dangling from the bow.


  1. This is gorgeous!! What a fabulous idea.

  2. What an awesome idea Cammi! Beautiful work as always!!! :)

  3. You and I think alike!!! I bought these same ornaments at Michaels but for a different paper craft project. I'll be posting it this coming Wednesday on my blog. Hope you come see. I LOVE what you created here. What a beautiful heirloom you have made. I love the jar and how clever to grate Styrofoam! So creative. Great job on this! Best, Curt
