Last week we took a look at four different takes on the “snow globe” display, thanks to four clever AtmosFANs. (To see that, click here.) This week, we go a bit deeper with Robert and Deena M., who give us a behind-the-scenes look at their snow globe, as well a few other charming Christmas creations at their Florala, Alabama, home.
First, we’ll start with the DIY snow globe the two created. Creating “snow globes” has been a very popular trend this past season, and we’ve seen countless clever decorators using everything from exercise balls to crystal balls to the AtmosFX Decorating Disc XL … and then some.
In the case of Robert and Deena’s snow globe, they re-purposed a 9-foot ornament arch purchased at Home Depot and stretched a king-size bed sheet over it; essentially turning it into a screen. Then, to keep it stable in the wind, they attached some rebar. While the Home Depot ornament was, in itself, a good-looking prop, now it became something truly special when Enchanted Snowman Decoration Collection was projected onto it.
“The kids love the ornament arch we turned into a snow globe,” Deena tells us.
Of course, that isn’t all. The entire Christmas display is full of light and color – the props and holiday lights look perfect spread throughout the yard. Personally, we keep coming back to the window projection of Virtual Christmas Tree Decoration – it fits right in; it almost looks like a mysterious shimmering hologram amongst the decorations.
Not unlike Robert and Deena’s snow globe, the two also built a large projection screen on the other side of their property, on which they display Nativity Window Decoration. It’s another highlight, Deena tells us, with the community. She says the kids love to stand near it and check out all the vibrant colors.
“The community has just loved our display,” Deena adds. “We’ve met so many in the town, and they have stopped and asked to take their Christmas pictures in our display.”
Great work, Robert and Deena! We love it!
