Not only snow globes can be made from these small jars, we can build a whole new village with it!

This is a very time consuming technique but the final result is very impressive.

Need hollow extruded beads? 
Don't have the core adaptors? Have you thought about using nails?
Isabel really wanted to create hollow beads for a little flag project but didn't have the extruder core adaptors. I haven't tried this solution but it's worth trying, and it's free!
Thank you the girls from the Israeli forum for this link.
