Snow globes DIY

Monday, 12 December 2011

Christmas mood.... 
I don´t know about you but I just love snow globes ! :) My problem is that I never find one that looks good enough.. ;)  But I have seen some gorgeous ones made by hand, and and quite easy to make !
Should we give it a try ? 

Here's how you can make your own snow globe:
  • A jar of your choice (with a lid)
  • Figurines, jewelry or what ever takes your fancy and can survive in a liquid
  • Anti-rust sealant for metal pieces
  • Clear-drying epoxy 
  • Distilled water
  • Dash of glycerin
  • Large silver or white glitter

1. Use clear-drying epoxy to adhere your piece to the inside of the lid. Let dry per epoxy instructions.
2. After the epoxy dries completely, fill your jar with distilled or boiled water (after it cools).
3. Add just a dash of glycerin so the faux snow falls slowly  like we all love!
4. Add as much glitter as you like. If you don't like the look of glitter, you can usually find faux snow at craft stores.
5. Screw your lid on tightly and shake away!
