You only need a few things to make this project and I would bet that you already have them around your home. The most important being a jar. I used a Mason jar, it was a little too large for this project, but it worked just fine. A pickle jar, spaghetti sauce jar,whatever you have around. Just make sure that you can see through it, it is very clean, and the top screws on really well. You do not want to give a leaky snow globe. You can also use whatever you would like for an embellishment. I had these cute little mercury glass ornaments, but anything Christmasy (and that can get wet) would work.
Here is what you need:
a jar of some sort
a gift card
hot glue gun
Glue a strip on the bottom of your jar. Stand the gift card up. Let dry completely. You can also glue your embellishments down as well. (After I glued them down, I decided that I wanted some of the ornaments to float, it took up some of the negative space. Hot glue comes right off, so you can play with it until you get it exactly the way you want.
Add some glitter to the bottom of your jar.
Fill the jar with water.
See how pretty and shimmery the glitter is? I love glitter.
Put the top on your snow globe and add a ribbon around the bottom. That was easy wasn’t it?
