I used the metallic confetti for the falling effect. The leaves blow around too much and end up outside the globe so it ruins the illusion. I ihave a large collection of Halloween Snow globes. The snow in them is usually glitter or bat shaped glitter. Stuff like that.Great idea Lil. Do you have snow (or better yet...falling leaves) in these to help sell the 'snow globe' idea? the glass globes look great. those can be used for may other applications.
