How to Make a Glitter Snow Globe From a Mason Jar
Help the kids create a handmade snow globe using their favorite figurines or personal mementos.
- one-pint Mason jar
- animal figurine
- waterproof super glue or epoxy
- glitter flakes
Step 1: Gather Materials
Choose an animal figurine or any plastic toy to display in your glitter globe.
Step 2: Attach Figurine
Use super glue, epoxy or any other waterproof adhesive to attach the animal figurine to the bottom of a Mason jar lid. Ensure that the animal is centered or positioned to fit inside the jar. Allow to dry, referring to glue instructions.
Step 3: Fill Jar
Fill jar almost completely with water, keeping in mind that the figurine's head should be covered when inserted. Once filled, add a few drops of glycerin and as much glitter as you like.
Step 4: Secure Top
Use waterproof glue to secure the jar top to the inner lip of the lid's metal ring and allow to dry. Once dry, squeeze a thin line of waterproof glue onto the lid's inner edge, and tightly screw it onto the jar. Allow to dry before turning over and shaking.
