Who doesn’t love a snow globe...? These are simply adorable and very easy and inexpensive to make. They make perfect little stocking fillers or sweet decorations for your home.





you will need...

+ Clean glass jars

+ Figurines

+ Distilled water

+ Epoxy glue

+ Glitter

+ Glycerine








1. Clean your jars and make sure there is a tight seal on the lids. Any kind of jars will do, recycle some from your kitchen cupboard or collect some vintage jars, mason jars are also great for this project.


2. Glue your figurine to the inside of the lid and leave until it is completely dry.


NOTE: Depending on its size and shape, you can use tweezers to carefully glue your figurine to the base of the jar rather than the lid.


3. Fill your jar almost to the top with distilled water.

4. Add a dash of glycerine, a pinch of glitter and stir, the glycerine will help the glitter fall down more slowly.


Depending on its size and shape, you can use tweezers to carefully glue your figurine to the base of the jar rather than the lid.


to finish...

Apply a little glue to the rim of the jar, screw the lid on firmly and leave to dry.

Shake & enjoy!
