Snow Globes



Baby food jars (medium or large jars)

Florist clay

Small figurine

White glitter or fake snow

Glue gun

Glue or aquarium sealing glue (hot glue is cheaper)

Optional: any ribbon, garland plastic greenery

Make sure jar is washed and clean. Note: any jar will do if you desire a larger snow globe.

Attach figurine to inside of jar lid using florist clay. If you are using a small object, it's a good idea to build up the clay so the object will appear taller. Attach any optional items with the clay (greenery, berries, etc.). Use your imagination, but make sure it is waterproof and won't dissolve.

Fill jar with water to within 1/2 inch of top. Use cold water as warm water tends to cloud. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of glitter, or snow into water.

Insert figurine in water, screw on lid. Let stand overnight, lid side up.

Use glue/sealer to ensure that it is waterproof and attach decorative ribbon over lid. You may also paint the lid rather than use ribbon. Use your imagination, the possibilities are endless!


Make sure the objects are secure in the clay, you could even glue them for added security.

Before gluing or sealing the lid, make sure you have sufficient amount of glitter. Depending on the size of the jar, you may need more or less.

To make a more elaborate snow globe, add tiny objects to float in the water, use a drop of colored oil to create a swirling effect, use food coloring in the water, various colors glitter, etc. This can be altered in any way to be a one-of-a-kind.
