  1. You make this look easy! Pinning it for future.

    • Kelly–it’s so easy! You can do it and best of all you can have your kids watch and they will be amazed they made their own snow globe!

    • Hi, I’m really into making souvenir’s for a camp where I can sell them – the money will go for sick children. However I wanted to ask – where do I get a snow globe like that??? Because I can’t find them in the stores like Pepco or whatever. I would be grateful for a quick anser. Thank You for the marvelous idea!!

  2. I can see this being a fun yearly activity!

  3. How adorable, would love to do that as a project over winter break! THanks for the inspiration!


  4. I really need to make one of these in a plastic container so my 8-month old can shake it to his heart’s content. Love this tutorial!

    • Go stock up on them now at Michaels. I find they are a little more difficult to come by after the holidays!

      • Patti J McCann says:

        You can get them at the dollar tree and if they dont have them you can order a case of them to be delivered to your local dollar tree for no shipping.

  5. Adorable! Pinning!!

  6. What a great idea! Loved the video!

  7. Super cute! I may have to make one of these! Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. I want to start making these for my niece and as gifts for family members but i cannot seem to find the basic snow globes anywhere. any suggestions? i have been practicing making them with stemware but those are mostly the dry ones with soap shavings and glitter.

    • Hi Damien, I have only found them during the holidays at the craft stores. I can’t even find them online. The good thing is that most craft stores will start to put out Christmas displays in July!

  9. Did you use fine glitter or the more chunkier glitter? I’m having trouble getting my glitter to float back down to the bottom.

  10. I bought a plastic mason jar from the craft store. Do you think that will work?

  11. Any ideas how to fix old snow globes that have lost their water? I have been collecting snow globes for over 35 yrs. A lot of them have lost water over time or became moldy inside. I would love to repair them so I can enjoy having them out each Christmas.

    • Hi Sherry–If they are true snow globes bought from a store I have no idea how to add water. I’m afraid to say it–it might be time to retire them and find new ones. As for the DIY version–you just open the tab on the bottom and add in more water!

  12. Do we need to put glycerin in the jars or just water?
