Homemade globes let winter come into your home and free imagination. Any jar works for the project but baby-food or olive jars are maybe the best choices. Look for ceramic or plastic figurines at hobby shops or flea markets. At floral-supply stores synthetic evergreen tips are available. If the jar lid is not in seasonal color, paint it with oil-based enamel paint.
- remove the lid of the jar
- glue the figurine to the inside of the lid- once you find the right place for it, apply your adhesive sealant to its bottom, press the figurine onto the lid and hold for about five seconds
- let it dry- this should take about a day
- fill in the jar- get bottled /distilled/ water and pour the jar to the top
- add the glycerin- pour in about a dash of glycerin- this means you should poor the bottle of glycerin for a second. The glycerin lets the glitter fall down more slowly, as if it was snow
- pour in some glitter- use plastic glitter and sprinkle a small mountain of flakes into the water. Stir the contents with a spoon to mix everything together
- fill in the jar to the rim- if you don’t want your snow globe to have any air bubbles
- seal the lid- the jar might leak at first- it is because it is overflowing. Once dry the excess water, turn your jar over- you made a snow globe!
Turn your snow globe over and back again and let it snow!
