12 DIYs of Christmas: Snow Globe Lamp
I love snow globes, y’all! There is something magical about looking into a snow filled scene! If you love them too, check out last year’s DIY Snow Globe blog post. I created snow globes with everything from ornaments to lanterns. This year, I am creating snow globes in lamps!
What you need for DIY Snow Globe Lamp:
Fillable glass lamp, hot glue gun, glue sticks
There are so many different types of faux snow available online like Amazon.com and at craft stores, like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. For example, there is fluffy ‘buffalo snow,’ styrofoam bead snow, and glitter faux snow. Any of these work!
Bottle brush trees are my favorite. However, deer, Santa, and snowmen figurines are cute, too. Group items in three, like two trees and a Santa.
- First, remove the lamp shade from the base.
- After choosing an arrangement for the figurines and trees, hot glue the bottom of the figurines to the inside base of the lamp. Often, the lamp bases are curved upward. so this will secure them in place. If the base is flat, there is no need to glue.
- Add any kind of faux snow to cover the bottom of the lamp base.
- Lastly, replace the lamp shade. Enjoy your snowy scene during the holidays.
So easy, right??? Before long, you will want to make every glass container into a DIY snow globe.
