What you need:
Trees (whatever you want in your snowglobe)
Hot glue gun
Making your own snowglobe is an easy craft that can be personalized and is also child-friendly. You could recycle old jars or purchase new containers to put trinkets inside, which is the beauty of this project. It’s also super easy and only requires about an hour of your time!
We purchased plain jars and little snow covered trees to go inside. For the “snow” inside the jars we used silver and gold glitter.
Clean out your jar or container and let it dry. Now would also be a good time to make sure the lid seals tightly so it won’t leak when shaken.
Once the jar is completely dry, hot glue the trinkets to the inside. Let it sit for about five minutes and make sure everything is secure.
Add however much glitter or snow that you would like on the side. After that add the water and for our small jars, we used about five drops of glycerin.
Seal the lid and shake your snowglobe!
