Picture of DIY Glitter Snow Globe
I am a child therapist and this is essentially a "Calm Bottle" (see here) with a Christmas twist.

  • Jar (I chose a round plastic jar from the Dollar Store)
  • Clear glue (or glitter glue)
  • White and silver glitter (fine and regular grain)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Christmas miniatures
  • Water
  • Super glue

Step 1: Create Snow Scene

Use hot glue to secure the christmas miniatures to the inside of the lid of the jar.  Make sure that nothing interferes with the grooves or it will not close fully.  I glued glitter to the bottom.

I have a glass jar shaped like a tree, and it has a plastic lid on the bottom. Do you think superglue would be sufficient to seal the glass and the plastic together enough to make it permanently watertight? I tried hot glue and wound up with a leak (it's possible I missed a spot, but so far hot glue has proved to be pretty much useless underwater in my experiments, so I don't know). I also have some epoxy glue, but I worry about the glue possibly getting wet while it's trying to dry.

That's a beautiful snow globe!!! I want to make one for my mother who passed away on Nov 2. Thanks for sharing!!
