Create a charming winter scene with this simple to assemble “dry” snow globe project. You’ll soon be dreaming of your own white Christmas.
Supplies and materials:
Glass mason jars with lids
small holiday/forest figurines, bottle brush trees and so on
artificial snow (found in craft/hobby stores)
white or crystal glitter
white tacky glue
ribbons and trims, tinsel, jingle bells and so on
1) Open the lids of the Mason jars and glue the inner lid to the outer lid.
2) Choose which figures/foliage you would like to add to you scene. Using white tacky glue, glue the pieces into place inside the lid. Let dry completely, about 60 minutes.
3) When the figures are sturdy and have completely dried, take the glass part of the jar and fill with a few tablespoons of artificial snow and a dusting of glitter. Take the lid portion, carefully invert and place on top of snow filled jar. Gently screw the lid in place to secure.
4) Turn your jar over and stand it lid side down.
5) Trim the edges of the lid with ribbon or tinsel, securing with tacky glue. Add a few jingles bells or an ornament on top to decorate. Let dry.
6) Give your jar a gentle shake and watch the flurries fly.
Happy Holidays everyone!
