DIY Snow Globes
Snow globes are everywhere on Pinterest at the moment. I mentioned them back in my Handmade Christmas post, and have been dying to make them since. I finally gathered all the supplies together and made a couple the other day!
These are so easy to make. I decided to go simple and make waterless ones, but you can make the ones with water using distilled water and glycerine. I think the waterless ones still look really sweet and effective though.
You will need:
Glass jars (Hobbycraft)
Christmas figures (I used cake toppers which I found on ebay and in Hobbycraft).
Artificial snow (Hobbycraft)
First, glue your figure to the lid of the jar. Leave to dry (it shouldn't take long).
Put a small amount of snow into the jar. You could also add some glitter for extra sparkle.
Screw the lid on, and ta-da! You have yourself a snow globe.
Add a ribbon to pretty it up, and admire your creation on your window sill.
These are so fun and cheap to make, and would also be a great craft for kids to join in on too. I think they look lovely out on display this time of year. I really want to make some more to dot around the house now!
Have you been doing any Christmas crafting?
