Rainy Day Craft : Snow Globes : Not just for Christmas

snow globe martha

Ingredients :

A jar with lid : Enamel paint & Paintbrush : water hardy figurines : glue gun : water : glitter : glycerine

(1) Paint The Lids

Paint outside of jar lids (optional). They will need two coats. Leave to dry between coats and allow to dry completely.

(2) Arrange the scene

Using your glue gun, generously apply your glue and stick your arrangement to the inside of the lid. Allow glue to dry completely.

(3) Water And Add Snow

Fill the jar almost to the top with water. Add a teaspoon of glitter and a dash of the glycerine. (Glycerine thickens the water and creates a snowfall effect with the glitter.)

(4) Seal The Lid

Using the glue gun, line the inside of the jar lid with glue. (Optional, if you don’t want to open it again!) Screw on the lid tightly and leave to dry. Add a festive gift tag to the jar neck for additional decoration (optional).
