DIY Mason Jar Snow Globe

Supplies Needed to make Snow Globe

  • Mason jar
  • Protective gloves (optional)
  • Glitter spray paint
  • Waterproof craft glue, such as Amazing Goop
  • Small white floral foam ball
  • Crafts knife
  • Assorted winter figurines and trees or laminated photos
  • Glitter
  • Spray adhesive
  • Distilled water
  • Glycerin ( try pharmacy_
  • Remove lid from the glass jar. Separate the two parts of the lid and set face-up on a flat surface. Spray the lid pieces with glitter spray paint. Once the spray paint is dry, glue the two pieces of the lid together with waterproof glue. This will prevent leaking from your Mason jar snow globe. Let the glue dry . Cut a small white foam ball in half, then partially remove the top so both surfaces are flat and the edges are rounded. Make sure the diameter of the foam piece is small enough that you can still screw the lid on. Use waterproof glue to attach the foam inside the lid and let dry. This will bump up figurines and trees inside the Mason jar snow glob.  Add glitter to figurines, trees, or photo edges with spray adhesive and loose glitter. Simply spray the items and sprinkle glitter over the top, twisting the object to cover all sides. Using waterproof glue, attach the miniatures or photos to the foam on the inside of the Mason jar lid. Let dry overnight. Fill your Mason jar with distilled water, glitter, and a few drops of glycerin. Glycerin is what suspends the glitter in the water, creating the magical snow-like effect. It also acts as a preservative to keep your figurines intact Before topping jar with lid, place waterproof glue around the rim of the Mason jar. Place the lid on the jar and screw the cap on tightly. Let the assembled Mason jar snow globe dry upside down overnight. After it is dry, turn it right side up, shake, and enjoy!
