DIY Waterless Snow Globes

As a little girl, I had a fascination with all things Disney. But what little girl doesn’t?!? I was lucky enough that my family went to Disney World several times when I was growing up. And every time we went, I would beg my parents for a Little Mermaid snow globe. I’ve always loved snow globes. There is something magical about being able to transform a wonderful little world into a snowy wonderland! I finally got one when I was 11. But the following year, my family moved and it broke. I haven’t had one since. So a few months ago,  when I saw Heather from WhipperBerry’s snow globes, I knew that I had to make them for Christmas this year! So I’m pleased to present to you, my very own, DIY Waterless Snow Globes!

All you need is love! And a couple other things. {Haha! I crack me up}

  • Mason Jar with Lid
  • Fake Snow Flakes {I got these at Hobbity Lobbity}
  • Bottle Brush Tree {I got mine at the Dollar Store}
  • E6000 adhesive

This is just about the hardest project ever. And it will take you 10 million years to complete. coughSARCASMcough. Start by putting a blob of E6000 adhesive on the lid of your mason jar.

Stick the tree on the lid and let it dry. While it is drying, put about 1 1/2-inches of fake snow flakes into your mason jar.

Once the glue is dry, flip your tree over and screw on the lid. Then flip the jar back over and shake it until the snow flakes shimmy themselves beneath your tree.

Then shake and shimmy that jar to make it snow in your very own little winter wonderland waterless snow globe! True, it doesn’t have water like the real deals, but you don’t have to be as afraid of someone dropping these! Of course, you don’t have to use just trees! You can use anything small enough to fit in your mason jar!

And since I got rid of a lot of our stuff when the hubby and I moved across the country a little more than a year ago to start a new life for ourselves in gorgeous Colorado, I just found a cheap new way to decorate for Christmas! These babies are going up on the mantel!

Did you love snow globes growing up?
