Five Minute Ice Globes

Even when the weather outside is frightful, Jack Frost  can surprise us in delightful ways. Icy conditions that make a morning commute or grocery store run a dreaded chore, become magical when turning trees and landscapes into a glistening winter wonderland. 

Of course the holidays are the perfect time to bring a bit of this frozen beauty indoors.

 With some inexpensive supplies you might have on hand it's easy to create wintry icy orbs without the freezing or melty mess. 

The real thing. A frozen ice bubble:  pixaby.com

Readily available at Dollar and Craft stores, they can be found in different sizes and styles(some snap together in two pieces and some have a removable hanger and small opening at the topEither style ornament works for this almost embarrassingly easy project.
