  • White glitter
  • Decorative ribbon
  • Hot glue gun

Equipment

    Instructions

    1. Attach your figurines to the inside of your jar lid with your hot glue gun. Attach any other items you want to use in the same way. You can use the glue to help build up your items to create a landscape. Allow this to dry completely.
    2. Fill your jar with cold water up to 1 cm from the top of the jar.
    3. Add about 1 tablespoon of glitter to the water for a small jar. If you have a larger jar, you'll need more but you can determine this by eye.
    4. Screw your lid with the figurines onto the jar.
    5. Use your glue gun to apply a seal around the edge of your jar. You can cover this later with a decorative ribbon.
    6. Allow your jar to stand overnight upright and then you're free to shake up your own personalized snowglobe.
