I’ve been meaning to make these for the last few years!  It’s such an easy craft and the possibilities are endless!

How to make Waterless Snow Globes

What you need:

*you can find all of these supplies at a local craft store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby, or Amazon (click the links to find them on Amazon)

1.  Remove lids and spray paint.  I used the Krylon Glitter Blast in silver, but white would work just as well.

*optional step (not shown) – I sprayed tress and snowmen with spray adhesive then sprinkled with glitter

2.  Hot glue your trees and snowmen to the lids (I also glued the canning lids together)

3.  Fill jars with just a little snow.

4.  Screw lids back on.

Turn them over and Let It Snow!

They’d make a great center piece or look cute in a window!

These are just too fun and easy to make – after waiting for my lids to dry, I made all 4 of these in under a half hour.  It’s a great holiday craft to do with the kids!

Have fun!

      The kids will LOVE this too! Real neat site I found! SantaOnCamera.com
      You can use a photo from your own home and insert one of their Santa’s and presto PROOF! Which is necessary this year (4 & 9 year old )… I’d like to see how he (my 9) will answer with the picture I made!

  14. 15

    Awwww. So cute!

    I used to collect snow globes when I was a kid.

  15. 16

    These are soooo adorable!

  16. 17

    Cheryl, these are the most perfect DIY snow globes I have ever seen. And I used to teach kids’ art classes where we made them. I was planning on making snow globes (with water) tomorrow but now maybe I’ll leave the water out. Thanks for the idea!

  17. 18

    These are the cutest things EVER!! LOVE!

  18. 19

    This is one of the most creative crafts I have ever seen. And to think they celebrate my favorite time of year…LOVE :)

    What a cute idea – can I bring my kids over to your house?

  21. 22

    Very cute! I was looking for a fun craft idea. I think this fits the bill! Thanks for sharing!

  22. 23

    These are too darling, Cheryl! I’m not very crafty, but I think maybe I could do these!

  23. 24

    Oh my goodness but these are too cute! I love them. The possibilities for the Christmas themed characters inside are endless. I hope I have a chance to make some this year!

    I absolutely love this idea! I’ve been looking for homemade gift ideas. This is just another great one to add to my list. Thank you!

  26. 27

    I love finding new uses for jars. I turned some of mine into silver-painted vases earlier this year. Going to have to try this one next!

  27. 28

    I have been looking for the perfect guide to make these. I have plenty of supplies to get started and can hardly wait to do so. Thanks for all the fantastic information and tips…

  28. 29

    Love this! Thinking of making it into a Christmas table centerpiece or maybe even personalized ornaments, if I can find small (light) enough jars!

    I should have skipped the snow globe cookies – this looks like so much more fun and takes no time at all! Wow! You are the smarter one – this confirms it!

  30. 31

    Okay, I “stumbled on” you and now I finally know what to do with those dollar store trees I grabbed last month! Great idea!

  31. 32

    These are pefect stocking stuffers if you get a small enough jar. The kids love them because they are whimsical and delicate, and parents love them because if they break at least there’s not a wet sticky mess to clean up. I love that you glitter-fied the tops/bottoms too, I hadn’t thought of that but it adds a sweet little holiday cheer!

  32. 33

    Beautiful well
    Thank you!

  33. 34

    absolutely adorable, Cheryl.

    Love these.

  34. 35

    I love this idea!!

  35. 36

    Caught my eye @ 30 Days! I love that they are waterless!!! Love, love, love these!!!

    Merry Christmas!

    Thank you sooo much for this idea!! I found an idea for a globe with water, but my glue wasn’t holding when it came in contact with the water. Also my lid kept leaking. :(
    So instead I did the fake snow. Never woulda thought of it. It’s not exactly what I wanted, but I think it looks great!!

  40. 41

    hello

    thankk you

    I love these and they just gave me a idea what too do with a large canister jar I’ve had for a while it had largeshell pasta in it and I tossed it out and saved the cansiter, so I think I will try to do a snow scene inside it.

  43. 45

    I’ve been looking for a tutorial for these – yours turned out so cute. Thanks for sharing with us! :)

    I remember making these when I was in Camp Fire Girls, oh so long ago. They were simple to make and to
    be enjoyed years to come. Not just not during the holidays, but choose a theme was fun too!

    I enjoy making these waterless snow globes. They are amazing.

  46. 48

    Where did you find your snowmen?

    Mark Fitzgerald says:

    What is the best way to get glitter to stick to the insides of the jar?
    Spray glue, Elmer’s mixed with water so it dries clear or rubber cement?
