I love vintage snow globes, but few keep all their liquid over the years. I thought maybe this year I may try to make my own! Martha Stewart and a few other people in blogland have tutorials, so I’ll relay the skinny on this project.
You’ll need a small jar – baby jar, olive jar, pimento jar, etc. Using epoxy, adhere a small plastic or ceramic figurine, animal, or tree onto the inside of the lid. Some crafters suggest mineral oil in the jar, but Martha says distilled water and a dash of glycerin. Sprinkle in a little glitter. Either screw that lid on tight, or put some epoxy on the threads of the lid first to keep it sealed up. Flip it and shake!
Pretty simple, huh? How about an idea that’s even easier, but yields a greater effect? You could use a glass bell jar or apothecary jar to create a snow dome – all you need is the container, some items to go inside, and faux snow. A modern presentation of the classic snow globe!
