Back to my obsession with snow globes… while I was shopping for a new set I ran across this craft idea at BHG and the possibility of making your own. How awesome is that? You can put whatever you’d like in this magic crystal ball to share for years to come.
What You Need
  • A globe with rubber base and plastic stand
  • Epoxy
  • Ceramic or plastic ornaments
  • Distilled water
  • Liquid glycerin
  • Glitter
How to Make It
  1. Look for 7- and 8-inch flower aquariums, which include a globe, rubber base, and plastic stand, at floral shops or online.
  2. Use epoxy to attach ceramic or plastic ornaments and figurines to the rubber base, which also serves as the lid.
  3. Fill the globe with distilled water to just below the opening; add about 1 tablespoon of liquid glycerin (found in soap-making sections of hobby stores) to thicken the water.
  4. Sprinkle with glitter.
  5. Working over a sink, slowly invert the decorated portion of the rubber base into the water; stretch the seal of the rubber base over the lip of the globe.
  6. Attach the plastic stand, turn the globe upright, and watch the snow fall!
  7. For extra sparkle, stand the snow globe in a silver wine bottle coaster.
