I’ll admit that I didn’t really know what to call these! “Spring Globes” or “Blossom Globes” didn’t seem to work unless you saw a picture with them. So I’m hoping you’re not expecting to see any snow in this craft!
To make these “Snow-Free Snow Globes”, I used:
- Clear sided jars (mason jars and spice jars are ideal) – labels removed
- Hot glue gun
- Plastic trees (I used these model trees)*
- Small rocks and pebbles
- Vegetable glycerine
- Pink sequins
- Chunky pink glitter (like this type)
*These trees are perfect for small world play but did start to disintegrate a little in the water. Plastic aquarium trees would be perfect for this craft!
To start with I hot-glued together the two parts of the mason jar lids. It probably wasn’t essential – but I wanted to be sure! I also removed the insert from inside the spice jar lid.
In each jar I mixed vegetable glycerine and water. I’ve seen some recommendations of a 50/50 ratio but I think mine was more like one third glycerine to two thirds water. I left a little gap at the top because the trees would displace some of the liquid. Then I added a few pale pink sequins and some pink glitter. The glitter wasn’t the super fine type, the individual pieces were relatively large.
And here’s a video of them in action.DIY Spring Blossom Snow Globes #crafts #springcrafts Click To Tweet
