Light bulb snow globes

FeaturedContest Winner

Step 4: Snowman -the upright lightbulb continued


  • Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon egg shells (snow).
  • Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon glitter.
  • Add distilled or boiled then cooled water, about 3/4 full.
  • Add a couple of drops glycerine (I tried adding the glycerine first, but it made the glitter clump together.)
  • Top up with the water, as full as you can.

Putting it together

  • Apply silicone sealant to the inside of the cap.
  • Place cap on light bulb neck and apply sealant to outer rim of bottle cap.
  • Leave upside down until sealant cures (see instructions on package, mine required 48 hrs.) I suggest waiting longer than the recommended time, to make sure it's fully cured before you turn it right side up.

why do we add glycerine?

Adding glycerin make the snow/glitter fall slower.
Try using baby oil instead of water. It is clear, but thicker so the glitter/snow won't setting as quickly!
