I love snow globes! Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated with them. Today’s project made me really happy! This DIY snow globe craft is a great project for kids, since you can customize the globes however you like, and since they are made with inexpensive plastic wine glasses, they won’t break the bank.
- 5 oz. Clear Plastic Wine Glasses
- Artificial Snow
- Wooden Doll Pin Head
- Seasonal Miniatures
- Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
- Silver Paint
- Mega Scalloped Edge Craft Punch
- Chipboard Piece (thin cardboard, like a cereal box)
The first thing you will want to do is cut scalloped edge circles that are sized to fit underneath the wine glass, with a little edge still showing. I used a scrap piece of chipboard. The packaging from the wine glasses would be a good pick.
Then, paint the bases silver as well as the wooden top pieces.
Then begin arranging your DIY snow globe crafts! Here are links to the seasonal miniatures that I chose:
Using a hot glue gun, adhere your items to the painted scalloped circle base.
Then, add a small line of hot glue around the edge of the wine glass. Don’t worry if it is a little sloppy. The artificial snow will cover up most hot glue globs.
