I have also entered this in different contest of instructables. Please vote for my instructables if you like it.
Step 1: Making Christmas Tree
I bought these green strings from Walmart to make Christmas tree.
Cut out branches from them as required. As i have planned to make 12 globes so i needed at least 12 branches however a single branch will not give bush look so i joined 2 branch together by using player.
After twisting them it time to give shape as Christmas tree. Using scissor cut it to the shape of Christmas tree.
Do not throw those left out cutting it is used to make grass .
Step 2: Things Need to Make Snow Globe
- Mason Jar
- Glue Gun
- Christmas Tree
- Props such as santa ,snow man
- Milk carton caps
Step 3: Making Figurine
Take milk cap Make a little hole or prick to insert christmas tree. Now insert christmas tree in that hole. make sure its tight. Then using glue gun paste little figurines of santa and snow man on them . then at rest of the place add a little glue and add little cut out of christmas leaf which i have advised to store while making tree as shown in picture.
Now glue another cap to the the bottom of the milk cap to increase height.Open mason jar and glue your assembled figurine in the cap(refer image)
Take the mason jar add 4 tbsp of glycerin. (Glycerine helps to slow down falling of glitters. more is merrier). 1 Tsp of glitters. Start with small quantity of glitters so that if you feel you need some more then you can add later. Then fill water a little below to the top. Now insert the figurine carefully in the bottle and tight the lid.
