How to Make Snow Globes Tutorial

how to make snow globes


  • empty baby food jars {Stage 2 size is the cutest, in my opinion, but all sizes work just fine!}
  • mini fake trees
  • Goo Gone
  • Glycerin {I found it at the Walmart pharmacy}
  • Glass & Bead glue OR Epoxy
  • Glitter {colored chunkier glitter works best. Don’t use clear or fine glitter}
  • Gold spray paint
  • distilled water
  1. Remove the labels off the jars and clean off the glue with Goo Gone.
  2. Spray paint the lids gold {or desired color}.
  3. Put a little glue on both the inside of the lid and the bottom of the fake tree. Allow to dry for 1-2 minutes and then press the tree onto the lid. Allow to dry for 24 hours. diy snow globes
