Can’t watch the video or missed some of the steps? Try our step by step instructions for how to make a Christmas snow globe below.
- Apply snow-tex to the top of your foam disc with a palette knife. Apply a thick layer.
- Then allow to dry for at least 24 hours. Make sure it is dry before continuing.
- Cut the base from the tree with scissors.
- Add the tree and also the wood train to the snow base with a little hot glue.
- Put a little of the artificial snow inside of the mason jar.
- Add the foam disc with the tree and train attached to the mouth of the jar. NOTE: This should be a really tight fit! If it isn’t, you will need to secure around the rim with a bit of hot glue.
- Then add the lid to the jar.
- Use hot glue to secure ribbon around the mason jar lid.
- Then use additional hot glue to add pom pom trim above the ribbon. Just make sure that your foam disc is covered when looking at the snow globe.
- This project is complete and ready for your holiday decorating!
