Everyone has been making adorable snow globes lately. There are snow globe ornaments, apothecary snow globes and snow jars. I found some tiny glass jars at Joann Fabrics and just had to buy them!
This is the package of Victoria Lynn 2 inch Glass Cruets that I used. I followed Carol at The Answer Is Chocolate’s method for making the snow globes with epsom salt. I used Elmer’s Craft Bond glue for this tutorial but tried using tacky glue which worked too!
Squeeze glue into the jar.
Tip jar to spread glue and let some run down the sides. If using a thicker glue like tacky glue, use a brush to spread it.
Add epsom salt. Then, let it dry. Since I am an impatient sort, I used my hair dryer to speed things along.
Find an image to put into the snow globe. Then, print the image in a contact sheet size…I had to uncheck the Fit Picture To Frame choice.
So tiny and cute!
Cut out the image, leaving an extra space at the bottom.
Fold the extra space back creating a small tab and attach the image to the lid with a glue spot.
Put the lid back on the jar and admire your handwork. My daughter helped me make the first one but I wasn’t able to get any pictures and when I took these pictures she was at school. Anyway, this is a great project for the youngestesr to help out with and they will be really excited to be in a snow globe!
I added this project to some of these link parties.
