DIY: A simple + sweet winter snow globe

DIY: A simple + sweet winter snow globe

My kids and I have been making these DIY snow globes for the last few years, and every time they just make me so happy! They are so simple and sweet, that I just can't get enough of them! They make the most darling gift for a teacher, grandparent, friend, or neighbor, and are equally as cute for decor around your home!

This year, I brought in enough supplies for my son's first grade class, and all the students made one. They then hand delivered them to a local nursing home where they visit weekly to read to the residents. I mean, is that not the sweetest thing ever?!? The kids loved making AND gifting them!

They are super simple to make, and only require a few supplies.

*Jelly jars

*Bottle brush trees (found in the Target dollar spot, Michael's, Hobby Lobby)

*Woodland figurines (deer found at Target, Michael's)

*Epsom salt

*yarn or ribbon

*Hot glue gun


Step 1:

Hot glue your deer and bottle brush trees to the underside of the jar lid (This is a job for a grown up or older child only). When I made these with my son's class we used glue dots, but hot glue is easier and holds stronger!

Step 2:

Fill the jar with a bit of epsom salt. This gives the look of snow!

Step 3:

Screw the lid onto the jar, and turn right side up.

Adorn with yarn or ribbon, if desired (I used this darling tinsel yarn from Hobby Lobby).

That's it! Then you'll want to keep making them until you run out of supplies!

Happy crafting!
