How To Make A DIY Snow Globe

Making your own snowglobe is a great project for kids as well as adults and creates a good opportunity to spend some quality time with children. Snow globes can be made with common things most people have just laying around the house. Makes a great inexpensive handcrafted gift for your friends and family.

Heres what you'll need:

  • 1) Any glass jar with a tight sealing lid
  • 2) Mineral oil, baby oil or water and a few drops of glycerin to fill the jar
  • 3) Figurine / decorations to put in your snowglobe
  • 4) Aquarium silicone sealant or hot glue to seal the lid and hold your figurine in place
  • 5) Glitter or crushed egg shell for the snow/flitter

Thats it! All the special ingredients to make your own basic snow globe.

Watch the above video to see step by step how easy it is to make your very own snowglobe and be sure to read the following tips and ideas to help create your own one of a kind custom snow globe.

Tips and Ideas for your snowglobe:

  • 1) First off, children should always be supervised when dealing with any type of silicone sealant or hot glue gun. Be careful!
  • 2) When filling the jar with fluid, remember to leave room for the figurine/decoration.
  • 3) When using water and glycerin to fill your snowglobe be sure your figurine/decorations are made of materials that can't rust.
  • 4) Try not to use figures or decorations that may have paint or anything else that might come loose after being submerged for some time.
  • 5) Coat the edge of the lid with a light layer of glue and sprinkle with glitter to really make your snowglobe sparkle.
  • 6) Glue ribbon or fabric to cover the edge of the lid.
  • 7) Many jars have a lot of numbers or a logo on the bottom, to cover these up use a bow or glitter, or maybe another figurine or decoration.
  • 8) Look for unique jars and figurines for your snow globe at thrift stores, Goodwill, even antique shops. Candle holders and small vases can make a great base or pedestal to attach your snowglobe, many of these items can be found for very little money.
  • 9) Snow globes aren't just for Christmas, make them for birthdays, anniversary's, any holiday or occasion. How about a patriotic snow globe? A little American flag in a snowglobe with red, white and blue glitter. Or maybe a G.I. Joe (or Jane) action figure for a military themed snow globe just for that loved one in the service. You could use a Mickey Mouse or Tinkerbell figurine and make your Disney Snowglobe.

The possibilities are endless, now grab your supplies and round up the kids, it's time to make your own snow globe!
