I have a very fun and easy craft for you this week~ Homemade Christmas Snow Globes! This is a really fun Christmas craft. Homemade snow globes are really very easy and can be personalized in any way you want. Your kids will love helping you make it, too. We were lucky enough to get some snow to go along with it yesterday.
How to Make the Homemade Snow Globe:
1 small jar
Small figurines or laminated photos
Hot glue gun
Choose a jar to use and some small figurines. I used a little tiny santa ornament from our tree and just cut off the string. I also used a Lego tree, some mulit-colored glitter, and a few little tree and star shaped sequins. I have seen people make the snow globes with laminated photos as well.
Glue the figurines to the inside of the jar lid with a hot glue gun and let it dry. I also put a few colored beads around the lid~ you could use little pebbles, or leave it with nothing, too. Fill the jar with baby oil and glitter. You don’t need a lot of glitter. The baby oil makes the glitter fall a lot more slowly. you can use water, too if you don’t have it. Hot glue around the edges of the jar before sealing it together (or test it first to make sure it looks just how you want it to!)
One recommendation… I used a canning jar and have had leaking issues. I would recommend you recycle a jar from something in your fridge so you don’t have the extra leaking spots, or just use a lid with a solid top. I have had to add extra hot glue around the top edges to ours to keep it from leaking.
Have fun! I would love to see your creation if you make it.
