I'm such a procrastinator-here are the pictures of my snow globe car last Christmas. I've added a lighted tree, packing peanut snow and lights on the trunk this year, but too busy to photograph it. Last year I used string on the ceiling, thread on the cotton balls and quilt batting on the seats, this year I put up wire for the lights, put the cotton balls on jewelry wire using netting on the ceiling and bed sacks for seat covers. I use LED's that pull almost nothing, and almost all my materials came from the thrift store including the lights. I've been pulled over once and the policeman sat in the seat and agreed my vision was not obstructed enough to merit a ticket. As for other drivers, most slow down upon approach and I unplug in extreme conditions.

This is a youtube where the local news found us in a drive through

 here is where they put it on CNN.

If you don't trust links, just google snow globe car






After Christmas I put in penguins and snowflakes. Yes he's wearing a hand knit hat and scarf from the thrift





and then I left it alone until Halloween-but that would be a separate thread.

THIS IS SO COOL!  Way to get others into the Christmas spirit too.  I wondered where you'd put the kids when you're driving, but the YouTube video answered that. It's nice your local police are also on board. Happy new year, enjoy the season - thanks for sharing.
