Introduction: DIY Snow Globe in a Nutella Jar
Here’s the list of the things you need:
- a computer and wi-fi connection
- 3D printer or 3D printing service such as Shapeways
- a Nutella jar (or another glass jar)
- glycerol (glycerin)
- a glue gun (or superglue)
- a winter wreath
- a set of string lights
- a Christmas mood (optional)
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
