Tonight the boys and I made some snow globes. They are all over Pinterest right now. I read a couple different tutorials and I'm here to tell you what works and what doesn't! I was having a panic attack when I thought I was having my first Pinterest fail moment! Then I realized the cause. So I'm here tonight to prevent you from having my same fear.
1. No need for styrofoam. It's messy, glue melts it and it makes the water cloudy.
2. Canning jars or old sauce jars are the way to go, jars without seals leak. Trust me.
3. You need lots, I mean lots of glitter.
4. Don't go crazy buying a ton of stuff to put in them. Unless you are using really large jars, not much fits on that lid.
Now that you know what not to do, I'm going to show you step by step what to do!
Jars- canning or some type of jar with a seal.
Ornaments or figurines. Make sure they fit in the mouth of the jar and they are tall enough to see.
Glycerin- cake supply aisle at Michaels
Diamond dust and a chunky white glitter
Small pliers (if you bought ornaments you'll want to take out the eye screw.)
And a hot glue gun. You don't need any fancy epoxy or other glue hot glue works great!
Step 1. Remove eye screw or hooks from ornament with pliers.
Simply add hot glue around the outside of the lid, and then apply your trim.
