I’ve never thought that I can make a snow globe with so little effort and money. For example, the snow globe presented here involves just a few common materials that most probably are already in your home: a jar, plastic animals and trees, polymer clay, glycerin, silver or white glitter.
The winter is almost here… “and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”. When I was just a little girl, on Christmas Eve, my grandmother gave me the most beautiful thing in the world – a snow globe, which I still keep in my room as a reminder of my childhood. In my family, we use to gather in grandma’s house each Christmas to drink a hot chocolate, share a plate of homemade cookies, tell stories, but also give and receive gifts. Although my grandmother is pretty old now, her eyes still sparkle each time she opens a gift, so I can’t disappoint her. Thinking on what I should get or do for her, I decided to reward her for the gift that brightened my childhood, and make her a beautiful snow globe. As usual, I started with a research, and I learned that there are so many possibilities to make a snow globe that I can’t decide on a single one. Whatever I’ll choose in the end, I thought it would be nice to share the results of my research with you, so I put them together and a new list was born … Take a look and get inspired!
