Waterless Snow Globes!!!

Two weeks ago I visited See Vanessa Craft with a Waterless Snow Globes Tutorial for the 20 Crafty Days of Christmas.  I just love how the Waterless Snow Globes turned out, that I figured I should show them off here too.  Enjoy the tutorial my friends.


With Christmas and winter approaching I can’t help but think about the snow that will be arriving in no time at all.  My daughters LOVE snow globes, they each own a couple of them.  The only problem with snow globes is that they are heavy to carry because of the water.  My girls love to carry them around to play with them but each time I’m worried they will drop them because of their weight.  Since they love them so much, I decided that we would make waterless snow globes together.  They will be able to carry them around as they wish.

We ended up making four waterless forest-style snow globes together:

We had so much fun creating our waterless snow globes.  It’s such a quick and inexpensive project.  We bought everything we needed at the dollar store.

Shredded Snow
Decorations (things to put inside the snow globes)
Hot glue gun

Step 1: Take off the lids from your containers and hot glue your decorations onto the lid.  Make sure you do not place your decorations too close to the sides otherwise you won’t be able to twist the lid back onto the container (it happened to Emanuelle’s snow globe and we had to pull off the moose.. which caused us to break its legs in the process.. thank goodness for superglue hehe). Step 2: Pour some shredded snow inside the containers, as much or as little as you want. Step 3: Twist the lid back onto the container.  Now you can flip it over and enjoy your waterless snow globe!!

Easy enough right?  My girls LOVE them, they have been having fun moving them around as they please.  We are probably going to make some more too! They are just so fun to make!

Have a FABULOUS day!!
