Two Different Snow Globes from Two Different AtmosFANs

In recent years, we’ve seen more and more clever Christmas decorators devising a new way to display Christmas-themed AtmosFX Decorations – the snow globe! We think these displays are perfect for the winter season – part of the reason we’ve continued to re-release some of our older decorations with an additional circular format. (Like this, and this!)

Indeed, there’s no shortage of ways to create a snow globe – you just need something circular on which to project. This week we bring you two AtmosFANs that created their snow globe using Enchanted Snowman Decoration Collection – but did so in different ways.

AtmosFAN Trisha M. lives in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, so it is not hard to imagine her thinking when it comes to creating her snow globe. “I was looking for something I could use as a snow globe prop that would not blow away or deflate in extreme cold,” she tells us. “After a couple of years of looking, I came across this outdoor fountain with the perfect size and shape.”

With a few coats of paint, Trisha transformed the fountain into something that looked more like a snow globe – and would withstand the snow and wind, of course. In calmer weather, any light colored sphere would serve the same purpose – many decorators use beach balls or exercise balls.

In this case, clearly Trisha found exactly the right prop. When Enchanted Snowman is projected directly onto the orb, it really does appear to be a magical snow globe. And apparently, Trisha’s neighbors agree. “We get a lot of compliments on this one-of-a-kind decoration,” she adds.We won’t kid you – there’s a lot more to gawk at than just the snow globe in the yard of Stacy S.’s Norman, Oklahoma, home. We love the great window projections of Nativity Window, Night Before Christmas and Santa’s Workshop decorations. And, heck, we’ll never say no to Will Farrell as “Elf” – even if it isn’t an AtmosFX Decoration.

In the case of Stacy’s display, she’s deployed an inflatable vinyl snow globe, on which she also projects Enchanted Snowman. These inflatables are often easier to find, often less expensive and, especially once it gets fully dark, they also do a great job holding the projected image. It is also worth noting how well Stacy hides the projector. Can you find it? We’re pretty sure it is tucked away inside the wrapped box prop directly before it.

This attention to detail certainly has not gone unnoticed. “We have won our neighborhood decorating contest two years in a row,” Stacy tells us. “We’re going for our third win this year!” We like your chances, Stacy!

Of course, these aren’t the only ways to create a snow globe – clever decorators keep inventing more and more ways to do so. Some will simply prop an AtmosFX Decorating Disc XL on its side and project onto it, like this. And if you decorate indoors, then you can do the same with a specially crafted crystal ball. There is no wrong way!
