CELEBRATIONS: Animal Snow Globe

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comThere have been a couple of trends that I love in the crafty world – snow globes made from jars and painted plastic animals. I decided to combine the two into a holiday stacked animal snow globe.

Upcycling: snow globe place cards

I love making snow globes. The funny thing is I’ve never actually made one with snow or water.

Faux snow globes are fun to make and a great use of small jars. With several small jars you could make a set of place cards for next dinner party or brunch.

To make a faux snow globe, you’ll need:
  • Small jars
  • Oasis or floral styrofoam
  • Moss
  • Small silk flowers
  • Paper
  • Tacky glue
  1. Glue a small piece of oasis to the inside of your jar top.
  2. Add a little moss on top of the oasis and glue down.
  3. Insert small silk flowers or greenery into the oasis.
  4. I added a butterfly that I printed out and trimmed and of course, the guest’s name.
  5. Carefully, place your jar onto the lid and screw into place.
This project would be ideal if you had a lot of baby food jars.

Upcycling: faux snow globe

I wanted to make a snow globe during the holidays but I didn’t have a few key ingredients, namely, glycerin and epoxy. You can find tutorial to make your own snow globe if you just Google “make a snow globe”.  I was planning on buying those items but never got around to it.

In the meantime, I made a faux snow globe. It’s not really a snow globe because there’s no snow, or water, or winter scene.


But I love how this turned out. All I did was arrange some twigs and flowers from the garden on a flower frog. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I covered it with a round vase.

 
I was going to spray a little canned snow on the arrangement but I was in the mood for a little color and left the snow off.

 This is ready to display - you just can’t shake it.
