DIY Snow Globes

5 Materials
1 Hour

This is not your average snow globe. This is a super cute, stylish, unique, and colorful DIY Snow Globe that was so fun to make and it turned out amazing. With Christmas coming up fast I thought it was about time that we created some cute Christmas crafts just like this one. This project was so fun and it’s definitely a conversation piece. Everyone loves the wood slab base, the colorful trees, and the fact that there’s no water and no mess!
-6-inch wood slice
-6-inch glass globe vase
-small bottle brush trees
–hot glue gun
-fake snow
–spray paint (optional) 
Step One: Spray paint the little bottle brush trees in whatever color you want! I am loving non-traditional colors for Christmas this year. I think they would also look really cool painted gold, don’t you? 
Step Two: Using a little bit of hot glue, attach the trees to the wood slice.
Step Three: Fill your glass globe vase with about 1 inch of fake snow.
Step Four: Add a line of glue all around the rim of the glass dome. Work quickly so that the glue doesn’t dry before you get to the next step.
Step Five: Pick up the wood slice with the trees attached and place it on top of the globe vase so that all the trees are inside of the dome. Hold them together till the glue has hardened.

    I'm going to do this! But I'm going to use a bead of silicone calk and glitter Does anyone have suggestions for the liquid?

      Water with a little glycerin is what we use for the liquid in snow globes. If you use a wood slice, I would seal it first with a few coats of decoupage glue or a thin coat of resin.

    Too Cute. I see in the photo that you are pouuring some kind of liquid into the globe but you didn't mention that in your directions. Could you tell me what kind of liquid did you use and how muuch?

      She’s just putting the fake snow in the globe, no liquid.
