I DIYed that Christmas Blog Hop: DIY Snow Globes

Welcome to the ‘I DIYed that’ Christmas Blog Hop with some of craftiest blogger friends. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite Christmas DIYs – DIY snow globes.  You will find lots of inspiration on the blog hop to get creative this holiday season.  If you came from Jordan’s Blog at A Blue Nest, welcome, and thank you for stopping by. I love Jordan’s wreath!  Next stop on the tour is Joy in our Home who is sharing her winter styled kitchen.  At the end of the blog post, I will link everyone in the blog hop.  Meanwhile, here are my DIY snow globes that I think turned out really cute!

 

Snow globes are really fun and easy to make using things that you already have!  If you love making them as much as I do, you can see more snow globe inspiration that I shared last year, here. With three basic components, you can make your own DIY Snow Globes.  Let me show you how!

What you need for DIY snow globes:

Glass Containers – Any clear glass container will work.  For example, every day objects like mason jars and bowls with a pedestal base to lanterns and decorative glass jars will work.  Furthermore, you can probably find something that you already own to transform into a snow globe.  For instance, I have even used a gum ball machine as a snow globe!  Often, thrift stores will have glass jars for a couple of dollars that you can transform into a DIY snow globe.  On the left, I have a a decorative glass jar and on the right a bowl with a pedestal base.

 

Faux Snow – There are a variety of faux snow available and you can use any kind.  The fluffy kind tends to be less messy, and you can easily pull it apart to fit into your containers.  I have also used the round foam beads and the glitzy kind.

Holiday Figurines – Bottle brush trees are my favorite to include.  Holiday figurines like miniature deer, Santa, snowmen, and houses are great to include, too.  You can also check for miniatures in the craft section at Michael’s Craft Store, Joann‘s or Hobby Lobby, too.  In addition, ornaments work well too because they are easily available this time of year, and come in a variety of small sizes.

 

Tips to DIY snow globes:

Once you have your materials, it is simple to put it together.  First, add faux snow to your containers.  Then, have fun and add your figurines.  Most importantly, group items that are a variety of sizes in sets of three to lead the eye throughout the design.  It is fun to create little winter scenes, like this! If needed, add a dab of hot glue to the bottom of the figurines to hold in place.  Hot glue usually pops right off the glass. However, test your materials beforehand.

DIY snow globes as a Centerpiece:

If you are grouping the snow globes together, use similar decorative components.  For example, I used a set of white bottle brush trees with red ornaments in this pair of snow globes.  Next, I divided a pair of gingerbread houses to add some whimsy and color.  If you love this traditional red and green tablescape and hot cocoa bar, you can see more here.  If you are using DIY snow globes as a centerpiece, consider adding greenery, lights and a beaded garland down the table.  In addition, a decorative green truck with a tree tucked in the back finishes the scene.
