I’ve been adding to my snow globe collection since I’ve gotten my first snow globe in sophomore year of high school. My friend went to Hawaii during a family vacation and brought me back a fish snow globe for a souvenir. Since then, I’ve been collecting snow globes from everywhere. Whenever I travel, I always try to find one to bring home (or ask for snow globe souvenirs)!
Snow globes are very popular decorations for the holidays. The falling snow and glitter in the globe mimics a snowy Christmas scene perfectly! A few shakes of a snow globe can instantly give you holiday cheer.
Large snow globes are pretty expensive. However, we can always DIY our own snow globe! The supplies are easy to find and we probably already have most of it lying around our home.
- jar w/ lid
- figurine (plastic, ceramic, or glass)
- epoxy glue
- distilled water
- sand paper
Make sure the figurine fits inside the jar! With a little bit of sandpaper, sand the inside of the lid to create a textured surface for the epoxy and figurine to stick to. Adhere the figurine to the lid with epoxy and let dry.
Fill the jar up with distilled water (not all the way full), add a few pinches of glitter (the more the better!), and a few drops of glycerin. Screw on the lid tightly, shake, and let it snow!
Snow globes are not that hard to make! Most of us should have a jar collection in our house somewhere, just waiting to be used! This project is perfect for that!
