Step 1: Find an Empty Nutella Jar

Get an empty jar and fill it with water. We used a 600ml Nutella jar for our snow globe.

Step 2: ​Add a Teaspoon of Glycerol (glycerin) and Glitter

Add a teaspoon of glycerol (glycerin) and a dash of glitter. The glycerol will make the glitter float better.

Step 3: 3D Print a Low Poly Landscape

Go to Vectary and download this low poly landscape 3D model template for free. If you don't own a 3D printer you can use affordable 3D printing services such as Shapeways.

Step 4: ​Glue the 3D Printed Landscape to the Jar Lid

Glue the 3D printed landscape to the jar lid. You can spread the glue more easily and evenly if you use a glue gun. Lock the lid properly into place and seal it with more glue to prevent any leaks.

Step 5: Add Some Accessories

You can set up a scene around the jar to make it look more elegant and Christmassy. We used a winter wreath and decorated it with a set of string lights so it covers the lid
