If you’re stuck for a gift, DIY snow globes are a neat idea – Even with the cheapest materials, you can rustle up something that looks fancy enough to impress your nan. Bonus points if you personalise the snow globe! Just make sure it doesn’t leak and Bob’s your uncle.
Mason Jar DIY Snow Globes
Let’s get this one out of the way. I’m sure you have seen it before, as it is somewhat of a classic. But look, it’s got a car in it! Depending on your available miniatures and toys, you could put all sorts in there and it will always look pretty. Add glitter for some special effects.
Baby Food Jar Snow Globe
Because, you know, there are loads of other jars you could use to make snow globes. Like jam jars – sometimes you get round ones that would probably look awesome, too. Just make sure to clean them properly, because mouldy snow globes with green and brown snow might not hold the same attraction.
Snow Globe Ornaments
If you’re tired of Nan Ethel’s knitted candy canes on your Christmas tree, swap them for these snazzy snow globe ornaments. Not sure shaking them while hanging on the tree is a good idea, but they sure look pretty.
Family Portrait Snow Globe
Now, I cannot imagine anything worse than having Uncle Robert’s face in a snow globe on my desk, but if you have a family that is presentable, then this is the idea for you. Variations include pets, comic characters or Chuck Norris.
Mason Jar Lid Snow Globe
In this unexpected plot twist, the snow globe is actually on top of the infamous mason jar instead of in it. Why? Because it can. Also, the mason jar now begs to be filled with other things, like a cookie mix or fairy lights.
Snow Globe Pump Soap
Another alternative to the mundane mason jar snow globe is this pump soap dispenser. Just in case your bathroom felt left out of all the festivities. Just remember to use clear soap…
Animal Confetti Globe
If you’re anything like me, then you plan to finally make one of these adorable snow globes to give away, you buy the materials, and then Christmas comes around and all you did in terms of DIY gifts was a tray of burnt cookies. Fret not, confetti globes are just as cute and can be made at any time of year.
