When you think of snow globes, doesn’t it make you feel nostalgic? There once was a time when snow globes were a classic Christmas item, and chances are, you had one as a child. Take the classic snow globe outside to add a warm winter glow to your walkway with this do it yourself project.
Mason Jars
Miniature Snowmen
Plastic Snowflakes
Tacky Glue
Glitter Snow
26 Gauge Wire
Solar Mason Jar Lids (found in the craft store)
Add plastic snowflakes to the inside of the mason jars using Tacky Glue. The glue will be white but will dry clear. The snowflakes were on a strand and I cut them to have individual ones.

Add tacky glue to the bottom of the snowmen.
Use tongs to place the snowmen into the jars.
Pour the glitter snow into the jars.

Add solar lids to the jars. Wrap with wire if you want to hang the snow globes. The snow globes are also great sitting along a sidewalk or lining stairs.
 Welcome your friends and family with the warm magical glow of a winter wonderland.
