So Thanksgiving just ended, which means the holidays are approaching. Maybe you want to decorate the house this year but have nothing to put up. Maybe you’re stuck on what to get someone. Here’s a great DIY for both conundrums.

 

Materials needed:

  • A mason jar
  • Water
  • Pure glycerin
  • Glitter
  • Waterproof craft glue
  • Small, waterproof toys or figurines to put inside your globe

 

Directions:

  1. Remove the lid from the mason jar and decide where you want to place the toys or figurines on the lid.
  2. Once you’re happy with the placement, use the glue to secure the toys onto the lid.
  3. While the lid is drying, pour some glitter (snow) into your jar. You can add as much or as little as you wish.
  4. Fill your jar with water but make sure you leave some room so when you put your lid back on, the water doesn’t spill everywhere.
  5. Add 3-5 drops of glycerin. This will help your “snow” fall slowly when you shake your globe.
  6. Once the toys have dried on the lid, glue the rim around it. Put a little bit of glue around the rim of the jar too so it’ll be secured once you screw on the lid.

 

And there you have it! A wonderful decorative piece for the holidays. Or if you’d like, a present for someone special in your life.
