... Camille Styles/DIY Network:

Snow globes are often a treasured souvenir from world travels. Now you can help the kids create a handmade version with their favorite figurines or personal mementos.


  • one-pint Mason jar
  • animal figurine
  • waterproof super glue or epoxy
  • glitter flakes
  • water
  • glycerin


1.Gather Materials:

Choose an animal figurine or any plastic toy to display in your glitter globe.

2.Attach Figurine:

Use super glue, epoxy or any other waterproof adhesive to attach animal figurine to bottom of Mason jar lid. Ensure that the animal is centered or positioned to fit inside the jar. Allow to dry, referring to glue instructions.

3.Fill Jar:

Fill jar almost completely with water, keeping in mind that the figurine's head should be covered when inserted. Once filled, add a few drops of glycerin and as much glitter as you like.

4.Secure Top:

Use waterproof glue to secure the jar top to the inner lip of the lid's metal ring and allow to dry. Once dry, squeeze a thin line of waterproof glue onto the lid's inner edge, and tightly screw it onto the jar. Allow to dry before turning over and shaking.
