Home Made Snow Globes

This morning Master M and I made snow globes, he has wanted me to buy him some for a few years now but when I thought how we could make them together I thought we would give it a try. It was a lot of fun and in the end we had to go looking for more jars. I think we made 8 and they are now sitting on the kitchen window sill, with one delivered to Nana's.

I found some ornaments that would fit into the jars at the cheap shop.

We then cut the bits we needed.

Hot glued them to the lids making sure we had space to close the lid.

Added glitter to the water, I had read to add baby oil to the water but it ended up being a big mess. So just water.

Lid on and shake.

We think they look much better than the one you buy at the shops and made with love.

 Remember you still have till next Wednesday to enter my give away.

  10. I love snowglobes and have been wanting to make them for years but somehow get the feeling I'd make a big mess instead. Yours are so lovely and what a great way for the 2 of you to spend some time together.
