Waterless Snow Globes

IMG_2541

These were fun and easy to make, but I had to order all my materials minus the jars from Amazon. You’ll need jars (preferably not with much writing/embossing on them), bristle or bottle brush trees, superglue or liquid nails, toy animals and imitation snow. You may also want some long tweezers or grabbers if you can’t fit your hand in the jar.

I decided to do mine right-side up because I didn’t want to build up the lid to avoid the distortion from the threading. But you could add clay to the inside of the lid to crate a raised landscape with the jars up-side down.

1. Spray paint the tops of the jars and let dry completely.

2. Pick out your trees and animals and glue them to the bottom of the jar. You may want to hold them in place so that they don’t lean. Let dry and add a bit of snow. Seal up with a touch of glue and you’re ready to gift. I’m going to have trouble parting with them, they are so cute!
