Snow globes are universal fun, both fun for children and adults. There are a variety of sizes of snow globes, and we usually attach snow globes with Christmas. So it is no wonder that we see snow globes usually with Christmas motives. Here’s how to create an easy snow globe that would cheer your loved ones.
For making the globes needed:
- jar or glass container with lid
- boiled and cooled water)
- sequins or beads
- Styrofoam or artificial snow crystals
- silicone gel
- small figure for the base (slightly larger than the lid on which to stand the snow globe)
Wash and dry thoroughly the glass before beginning construction.
First glue the figurine to the inside of the lid of the jar. That figurine is to be the centre of your snow globe.
Fill the jar to the top with water. To make it more fun, add a few drops of glycerin or the amount of tablespoons, and then insert sequins. Bear in mind that the sequins should not be too small to avoid them floating on the surface. Glycerin is thick oil that can be bought at any pharmacy. It will give the additional density to the fluid inside the globe and thus slow down the sequins flow and create that „snowing“effect.
Close the jar (the globe) tightly with the lid with attached figurine. Securely fastened the lid and if necessary, provide additional silicone around the lid, so you will keep the water in, where it should be.
Place the finished snow globe the some decorative base .
Choosing a jar of unusual shape to make the globe a bit more interesting.
Glycerin is thick oil that can be bought at any pharmacy. It will give the additional density to the fluid inside the globe and thus slow down the sequins flow and create that „snowing“effect.
Instead of water, you can pour clean oil, and you can optionally add pain in the liquid.
