Sweet and Silver Holiday Sphere

By: Sue Eldred from Sue's Creative Workshop

Who doesn't love the Christmas season? The entire neighborhood is covered in pretty Christmas decorations, like Sue's Sweet and Silver Holiday Sphere. To make this Christmas craft, be sure to let each layer properly dry, and be careful as you mount your silver ball on top. It is also important not to use alcohol based adhesive, as it will destroy the foam. This gorgeous glitter globe will add just the right amount of sparkle to your Christmas decor.
