Valentine’s Day Snow Globe
Who says a snow globe is just for winter? Why not make your own magical globe for Valentine’s Day? Use some leftover holiday supplies to make this charming scene! I happened to pick up those mini bottle brush trees and the little plastic deer at the craft store right after Christmas, they were on clearance for only a few dollars so really it was a steal. I figured why not make a snow globe Valentine’s inspired using these materials, and I’m pretty happy about how it came out, it think it’s pretty sweet and would certainly make a nice gift. Kids will also surely love making a snow globe like this too!
I put together a video tutorial for this gem right here at The Art Dream, take a look at it below but first, here’s what you’ll need...
Step 1. Paint your bottle brush trees with an all purpose paint. Let them dry really well because you don’t want the wet paint to mix with the water or your snow globe will be ruined.
Step 2. Cut a pice of styrofoam to fit the inside lid, paint it and let it dry well also.
Step 3. Hot glue the styrofoam to the lid then hot glue on your trees and figurines.
Step 4. Fill your jar about 3/4 of the way and add about 2 tablespoons of glycerine and glitter of your choice.
Step 5. Place the lid in the jar and add more water if needed!
