DIY Snow Globes

I think we can all agree that there are infinite purposes of mason jars. Well, I found the best use for one. My bestie, Shardi and I first came across these snow globes in a mason jar, at Anthropologie. They are the cutest! They had salt shaker snow globes clever. But again, why buy it, when you can make it?! Everybody loves a good snow globe. They are great Christmas decorations and good gifts too! I love how you can personalize them for each person. Make a Star Wars one for your nerdy brother, a bird one for your grandma, and a basketball one for your boyfriend. You can put them in a jar or any kind of bottle. I personally love a good snow globe, especially the Disney princess ones. Annndd.. you guys know where to find me if you ever spot a good Harry Potter snow globe. Anyways, I found an easy tutorial online, thanks to Julie Ann Art, so here you are my dears! Be creative!

DIY Mason Jar Snow Globes
What you'll need:
Any jar that seals
Distilled Water
Liquid Glycerin (available at drugstores)
Epoxy/Crazy Glue

Using the Crazy Glue, attach your figurines to the lid of the mason jar. Let them dry completely. (I waited 24 hours to be sure.)
Next, fill your jar almost to the top with distilled water. Add a dash of liquid glycerin (this is used to make the glitter fall more slowly). The amount is glitter you add is sort of at your own discretion. Screw the cap on tightly and shake your jar to get the glitter moving.
That was easy, huh?! Here are some more cute ones for you to get inspiration from!!
