I have been dying to do this project with vintage ornaments inside of a large shadow box. I first saw it on Pinterest a few years ago and it's languished in my 'to do' file till now.
Over the holidays, I won a couple of ebay auctions of antique Shiny Brites and other 1940s-50s era glass balls. Shadow boxes are very expensive, especially the size I wanted. However, I had a 40% coupon for Michael's Crafts and got a wicked deal on the perfect one. There was no way I was waiting till next fall to assemble it and I am so pleased with how perfectly it worked, and showcases the best ones.
I literally have no where to hang this, but I have till next December to figure that out.
