1. DIY Winter Snow Globe
First of all, let’s start with a traditional snow globe project. It requires a few ingredients and has only 4 simple steps. You will need a glue, a figurine, a snow globe, distilled water, glycerine, glitter and a measuring spoon. The following short video will guide you how to create it on your own within minutes. Let’s get started!
2. A Lovely Baby Food Jar Idea
If you have a baby and you can’t deal with the plenty of baby food jars, turn them into awesome snow globes! This upcycle idea is also easy to create. You will need empty baby food jars, mini fake trees (or anything you like/have at home), glue, glycerin (you can buy it at pharmacies), glitter, gold spray paint and distilled water.
First of all, remove the labels of the jars and spray paint the lids gold. After that just put a little glue on both the inside of the lid and the bottom of the fake tree (or the figure you have). It is really important to allow to dry for about 1-2 minutes and press the tree onto the lid. If your glue needs more time to dry, be patient and don’t hesitate to wait. Your next step is to add 1 teaspoon of glitter into each jar. Then fill with distilled water and add 5 drops of glycerin. Finally, screw the lid onto the top and your project is done!

5. DIY Mason Jar Snow Globe
Here is a fascinating but a little bit different craft idea again. You will need a mason jar, fake snow, figurines that will fit inside the jar, fishing line, a needle and a tape.
Firstly, spray the lid of this jar with gold spray paint, while it is drying, thread the needle with the fishing line and going through the center of each white ball we start to thread the balls onto a line. After that, to attach the “snow fall” use packaging tape. In order to keep everything in place, use a lid that is from a mailing tube and hot glue the cute figured on to it.
