“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”~Andre Wyeth
Winter is so magical to me. Especially that very first snowfall that sticks and blankets the land in white and the trees in a new jacket of snow. Watching the snow fall is one of my favorite things to do in the winter- whether I am sitting inside curled up under a blanket by the fireplace, or taking a long walk in the middle of the woods.
So, won’t you bundle up and join me on this wintry themed project?
Today my kids and I made our own winter wonderlands -so we can watch the snow fall any time we would like, right inside of our own house.
Create your own snow globe | DIY Christmas craft.
*Jars of any size, I used 2 medium sized canning jars, a pickle jar, cherry jar and garlic jar.
*Figurines of choice (Do not use metal or they will eventually rust) Check your local thrift stores, dollar stores, or hobby/model train shops.
*Glycerin (if desired, I did not use it. Glycerin will help slow down your snow fall)
2.) Lightly scuff the inside lid of jar with sandpaper.
3.) Glue figurine onto the inside of jar lid with epoxy.
5.) Fill jar almost full with distilled water.
6.) Sprinkle in a small amount of glitter into jar.
6.5) Get a little messy if you’d like.
7.) Screw lid onto jar-tightly.
8.) Watch it snow!
Such a fun project! If you have children, please involve them! -(^Just look at her joy! )
