I am in awe of snow globes. I hold one in my hand and turn it over and over wondering how they are made and how the snow and water got in there. I especially wonder if I can make my own snow globes to give asChristmas
presents. The short answer: yes!
Photojojo has a great tutorial on making your own photo snow globes in 15 minutes
. Using a clean mason jar
or an empty water bottle, two photos, Goo Gone, clear wide packing tape, scissors, glitter, corn syrup, and water, you too can make a snow globe, perfect to give to Grampa and Gramma.
Clean off the label and any stickiness left behind on the bottle with the Goo Gone. Tape the trimmed photos so that they will become waterproof. Insert the photo into the bottle. Put in your glitter and 50-50 mix of corn syrup and water, glue on the cap, and shake well. Viola!, a homemade snow globe.
Since I want to make all my Christmas presents this year and avoid trips to the store, this is the perfect present to make and give to anyone that loves snow globes. Since this snow globe
only takes 15 minutes to make, go nuts and make one for all your loved ones. They will be happy to know you thought of them this holiday season.
