Step 1: Materials

-Super glue

-Glitter

-small figurine

- clean and unwrapped glass jar

-paint & paintbrush (optional)

Step 2: Step 1: Paint the Lid of the Jar

Use any paint that you have to cover the lid of the jar. This step is not crucial but makes your snow globe a little bit more appealing.

Step 3: Step 2: Glue the Figurine

Use your super duper strong glue to attach the figurine to the center of the LID. MAKE SURE YOU ATTACH THE FIGURINE OF CHOICE TO THE INSIDE OF THE LID! Let dry.

Step 4: Step 3: Glitter and Water

Pour some glitter into your glass jar. There should be a thin layer that covers the entirety of the jar. Then add your water to the jar. Fill it almost to the top but keep in mind the water displacement due to the size of your choice figurine.

Also you might want to test out the water amount with the figurine by closing the jar and giving it a shake before you shut it for good.

Step 5: Step 4: Glue the Lid

Use the super cool glue to seal the lid of the jar. Pour glue on the edge of the jar where the lid screws on. Then screw the lid on and let dry.

Step 6: Step 5: Admire Your New Snow Globe
