Waterless snow globes

The minute I saw this tutorial via Tidy Mom, I knew I wanted to make my own…

Waterless snow globes!

A few years back, our girl scout troop made snow globes using baby food jars, water, corn syrup and glitter.

They came out super cute, but I found my daughters had a very slow leak, which ended in a very sticky situation!

I have seen them using liquid glycerin as well, but I just couldn’t seem to find liquid glycerin and decided to go the waterless route.

Here is what I used to make my waterless snow globes:

:: Miscellaneous jars I had collected from pickles, marshmallow, baby food, sauce jars, etc.

:: Trees from Joann ~ at the time I got a pack of 20 for 60% off, they also have them at the dollar store.

:: Buffalo snow

:: Glitter

:: Pom poms

:: ribbon or rick rack

:: miniature carolers found at the Dollar Store

:: Tiny gold stars I bought from AC Moore

:: glue gun and glue sticks

You could use just about anything you can fit in your jar, the possibilities are endless!

I didn’t take pictures during, but here is how they came out…

fuzzy, glittery pom poms and glitter

pom poms, snow and glitter

Instead of spray painting my jar covers, I just hot glued gold glittered rick rack to hide the wording.
These were so much fun to make and I think they came out adorable.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
