Do you need a last minute, easy, customizable holiday gift? This DIY snow-globe is both cheap and easy. You might even already have all the materials laying around the house.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Glitter
  • Water and/or glycerin (glycerin will make glitter float better)
  • A glass jar
  • High-strength glue/adhesive
  • A figurine that will fit on the underside of the lid of the jar
  • Optional: the outside of a tea-light to use as a stand for your figurine

HOW TO ASSEMBLE YOUR SNOW GLOBE:

1. Look at the label of your glue or adhesive for the dry time you will need to wait before adding glitter and water to your slow-globe. Plan accordingly. I had to glue my figurine and wait 24 hours.

2. If using the tea light trick, simply remove the tin from the outside of the candle and glue it to the inside of the jar’s lid. This will elevate your figurine to make it easier to see. IMPORTANT: make sure that your figurine will fit inside of the jar with the tea light tin before you glue.

3. Glue your figurine to the inside of the lid or the tea light tin. Allow to dry completely.

4. If your jar has a label, soak the jar in water until the label is easily removed. If the adhesive does not dissolve, use rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover to weaken its hold and then scrape it off of the glass.

5. When the glue is dried and all your materials are assembled, add glitter to the empty jar. You want to do this before adding the liquid because the glitter will stick to the figurine.

6. Fill the jar with water and/or glycerin, then screw on the lid.

7. Shake and enjoy!
