Make Your Own Snow Globes

  • Almost any jar works for this project: Baby-food, pimiento, and olive jars are good choices. Look for plastic or ceramic figurines (metal ones are prone to rust) at flea markets and hobby or model-railroad shops.

  • You will also need oil-based enamel paint, sandpaper, epoxy, distilled water, glitter, and glycerin (available at drugstores).

  • If the jar lids are not in seasonal colors already, paint them with oil-based enamel paint. Sand the inside of the lid until the surface is rough. With clear-drying epoxy, adhere the figurine to the inside of the lid, and let the epoxy dry.

  • Fill the jar almost to the top with distilled water. Add a pinch of glitter and a dash of glycerin to keep the glitter from falling too quickly. Don't add too much or the glitter will stick to the bottom of the jar when it's flipped.

  • Screw on the lid tightly, being careful not to dislodge the figurine. Turn the jar over and back again -- and let it snow.

  • Don't forget to like please! And get into the holiday spirit ☺ http://www.marthastewart.com/276346/how-to-make-a-snow-globe/@center/1009041/christmas-crafts-projects
