How To Make A Snow Globe With A Jar:
*Choose a theme: In case you want it to be Christmas-related, a snowman or pine tree might work. If it’s for a birthday, then try a small toy. For a personalized snow globe, try a heavily laminated photo that is glued to a cork or another base. However, make sure the figure is waterproof and fits on the jar lid and inside the jar. Also ensure that there’s a good flat surface to glue down the figure. Additionally, ceramic or plastic figures are good bets but you can also make your own figure out of sculping clay.
*Get high-quality jar: Any jar-size can work starting from a baby food jar to a spaghetti sauce jar to a large mason jar. However, make sure there are no cracks in the jar and it can be closed tightly. Additionally, test out the seal on your jar ahead of time by filling it with water, close it tightly and turn it over to ensure that nothing leaks out. Also wash your jar with hot, soapy water to remove any labels or glue remaining and make sure it’s totally dry before proceeding. Once you’ve got a figure and a jar, try placing it in different positions to figure out what looks best and which side you should glue down.
*Gather your project supplies: Besides a jar and a figurine, you will also need: Waterproof craft glue or epoxy, Glitter or fake snow, Bottled-water, Glycerin or baby oil.
*Position the figurine: Remove the lid from your jar and find where to place your figurine. In fact, model it in different positions and try the jar over top. Once you have found the right position, apply adhesive sealant to the bottom of the figurine and then press the figurine down onto the lid. Hold it for about 2-to-5 seconds depending on the size.
*Let the glue dry: Drying could take up to 24-hours but check your glue packaging for drying times. In fact, find where it won’t be disturbed when setting and make sure the figurine on your lid is nice and secure before proceeding.
*Fill your jar with water: Consider using bottled-water since it will be clearer. However, leave a little room at the top for glycerin, glitter and space for your figurine.
*Add the glycerin to the jar: Apply a few drops to about a teaspoon but depending on how big your jar is. However, glycerin is optional but it will let your glitter or “snow” fall down more slowly. Additionally, baby-oil can also accomplish the same results.
*Apply some glitter: Using plastic glitter, sprinkle 1-to-2 teaspoons into the water. However, you may want to use more for a bigger jar but don’t overdo it or your snow globe will look hazy. After, use a long-handled spoon to mix it well.
*Seal the jar lid: While keeping the glass jar right side up, place your lid onto the top of the jar and seal it. In case there’s any extra water, it might leak a little. Turn the jar over gently and see if there are any leaks. Also check for extra space at the top and turn the jar back over and add a little more water if needed. After, let it sit for a few days to make sure there are no slow leaks or problems. When you’re sure everything is good, you may want to glue your jar to shut it permanently with epoxy or hot glue.
*Shake the jar up: Gently shake your snow globe to enjoy your lovely craft. After, display it on a windowsill, bookshelf or anywhere else you’d like to show off your handiwork.
