UCLA Sailing Team Snow Globe

As you may have known by now, a lot of my second year of college was dedicated to the UCLA sailing team. When I wasn’t in class or studying, I was competing at regattas or hanging out with my team at socials and parties. Marina Del Ray became my second home and all I knew was the sailing team. For Christmas, we’d have a banquet and do white elephant. The budget was around $10-15 and for my gift, I decided to make a snow globe of the whole team! I thought this would be a good universal gift to whoever got it and it would be a great way to rep the team! I printed out my favorite team pictures and decorated them with card stock and decorative tape and strings! I love putting things together and improvising as I go along. I decided to trim some gold decorative band and hot glue it around the rim of the globe as an accent!

You can find empty snow globes online (probably Amazon) and even local Targets and Walmarts (in the photography or frame section). I bought this at Urban Outfitters and it was on sale for about $12 but I’m confident you can find a cheaper one!

This project was super easy yet still a very well thought out gift. It can be sentimental to whoever you choose to give it to!
