How To DIY A Dollar Store Snow Globe

This Christmas season I am participating in a Dollar Store Christmas Craft Challenge. I chose to make a Snow Globe. I found the Snow Globe at my Dollar Tree a few months ago and grabbed it. I have a love of Santa so I knew that was the image going inside. Finding the Santa took a bit more time but I finally located one at the Dollar Tree. I would have liked to add a few bristle Christmas Trees behind the Santa but I was not able to find them. Items sure do sell out quickly at the Dollar Tree!


Materials

Materials:

  • Snow globe
  • Santa figure
  • Super Glue
  • Sparkle Red Ribbon
  • Silver glitter
  • Snow shaped sequins
  • Water
  • Blue food coloring

Directions:

Begin by taking the Snow Globe apart, there are directions inside if needed.


I used Super Glue to attach the Santa to the base of the Snow Globe.


While the glue dried, I put glitter and snowflake sequins into the globe.
 


Then filling the globe with water, I thought blue food coloring would look nice.
It was too dark so I had to pull the globe apart and drain out the water saving the glitter and snowflakes.
I added more water then placed the "plug" with the Santa into place.


To finish it off, I tied a glittery red ribbon around the base of the globe.

This project was very easy to make. The glue drying was the only step that took a bit of time. And of course my error with the blue food coloring! The glitter seems to flow nicely while the sequins like to clump together more. I actually purchased the snowflake sequins for another project expecting them to be 1" across but they were teeny tiny. So, instead of returning them to Amazon, I used them for this project. The snowflakes are the only item that didn't come from the Dollar Tree.

I had no idea you could make your own snow globe like this. What a pretty idea and it would make a great gift for anyone and it could also be customized.

This is such a fun idea, Janet. I love snow globes, but I've never tried to make my own. Yours looks great!
