This project by Adorn the Table guides you through making a DIY holiday snow globe using simple materials like a Dollar Tree pillar candle holder and a small round vase.

The key is creating a waterproof seal between the vase and candle holder. The items inside need to be waterproof, like ceramic or plastic, and small enough to fit comfortably.

The necessary supplies include distilled water, glycerin, marine adhesive sealant, and optional embellishments like tinsel or a glass doorknob. Following the steps carefully, you'll have a custom holiday snow globe perfect for decoration or gifting.

This project by Cindy | Something Painted White guides you in creating DIY wine glass snow globes that can be customized for any occasion.

You'll need wine glasses, canning jar lids or cardstock, figurines, artificial snow, ribbon, and white spray paint. Thrift stores are a great place to find affordable wine glasses. Ensure they're plain and in good condition.

Paint the jar lids white, then use hot glue to attach figurines. Add a small amount of snow to the glass, then glue the wine glass to the lid. Finish by decorating the base with ribbon. These snow globes can also double as candle holders.
