Winter is in full swing, so what’s the best way to keep the kids off electronics during these cold days? Crafts of course! Today I’m showing you a quick waterless snow globe tutorial.
As a child, I was always encouraged by my mom to craft and so making things has always been a BIG part of my life. It’s why I always encourage MY kids to be creative. Arts and crafts are a big part of that, I think it builds special memories with your kids.
For this snow globe all you need are a couple supplies to get started.
Snow globe tutorial supplies:
- Darice DIY Make Your Own Snow Globe
- Darice Mini Snowman Figurine
- 3 inch Darice Bottle Brush Trees
- Darice Iridescent Snowflakes
- Hot Glue Gun
- Festive Ribbon
Step 1. First you have to get a snow globe and decide what you want to put inside. I found this cute snowman on the Darice website and paired it up with a mini tree.
Step 2. Grab your “hand dandy” hot glue gun and add a small amount to the bottom of the snowman and mini tree. Firmly press them into place. If you have younger kids making them, then make sure to give them some help with the hot glue gun.
We don’t want any little fingers getting burned!
Step 3. Now let’s add our snow! Add a small amount of snow into the globe, you don’t need much. You don’t want to cover your items up with snow.
Now add your lid back on top!
Step 4. I decided I wanted to add an extra touch of ribbon to the bottom of the snow globe. Just cut to size and hot glue into place.
Now you have an adorable waterless winter snow globe!
I really love how this turned out. Since making this one, I have had so many ideas of what to put inside other snow globes and can’t wait to get the kiddies involved in this project.
As always thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project! Stay cozy this winter!
