341. snowglobes.


I have been wanting to make our own snowglobes for a while! I finally found some of these little christmas trees at micheals, so we were able to make these finally happen. I dunno though…I kind of feel like this is a pinterest fail in some ways. The glitter sticks to everything (we tried using glitter and glitter tinsel – the tinsel works better for sure). The trees seem to darken the water and we have to redo them. We used the glycerin, but in some of them (the middle snowglobe) the glitter gets all clumpy at the top ( I think b/c of the gylcerin). So I dunno. Has anyone else made these and have had luck? Whats the trick?! They seem so easy. Anyway, we had fun doing it and making a few as gifts! I love that milo picked a dinosaur for his on the end.
