Now, Let’s Make Waterless Snow Globes

Start by removing the lids and paint them with the spray paint.  I used the Krylon Glitter Blast in silver, but white would work just as well.

Next, and this is totally optional (step not shown) – I sprayed the trees and snowmen with spray adhesive then sprinkled with glitter for a little extra sparkle.

Now you are ready to hot glue your trees and snowmen to the lids (I also glued the canning lids together).

Now for the fun part! It’s time to add the snow. Fill jars with just a little snow. You don’t need much, you don’t want the snow to bury your snowmen or trees.  Just add enough snow to cover the bottom of the jar.

Time to put it all together!! Since your trees and snowmen are glued to the lid, you can now pick up the lids and screw them back on to the jar.

Turn them over and you’re done!

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW……LET IT SNOW!

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!
