Super Easy DIY Snow Globe

Super easy 10 minute diy snow globe inspired by a book. Use a new mason jar or reuse old glass jars.

If you’ve been following this blog, you’d know how much I love reusing old glass jars.

Last Christmas, we made Snowman Playdough Kits in mason jars and we also made Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in major jars.

This year, we decided to use jars to create Christmas diy snow globes. There’s a twist! This ornament is inspired by a book called The Christmas Wish.

We picked up this book a few weeks ago because I was drawn to its imagery. It’s about a little girl who wants to be Santa’s elf so she makes a trip to the North Pole to find him. Its got the most amazing imagery of the little girl with different animals in the North Pole.

For the snow globe, I thought it’ll be cool to make one that glows in the dark. Luckily we have some leftover glow in the dark glitter from our Glow in the Dark Glitter Jars.

For the figurine inside the globe, I searched high and low for one that fits our theme.

Before I invited Elle to make this ornament, I spray painted the lid of the jar white. I prefer that much better than the yellow gold in came in.

*Update* – We’ve played with this diy snow globe for a few days now and the darn spray paint is coming off. I think I was suppose to prime it….so, if you really want your paint to stick, make sure you follow the instructions on the can, ok?

When the lid is dry, Elle and I hot glued the figurine to the lid.

Then I let her put in a good amount of glitter into the jar. I gave her a cup of water to pour into the jar and we put in as much water as we could to avoid a big air bubble later on.

Next, I put a bit of crazy glue to the rim of the glass and screwed the lid on.

Easy peasy, right?

So sorry I don’t have a picture of the jar in the dark. For some reason I just couldn’t take a decent picture of it this time. You can look at our Glow In the Dark Glitter Jar if you want to see what it looks like in the dark. It does look similar =)
