Make a Christmas snow globe in just minutes as an easy way to give EOS lip balm to friends and family. Follow this snow globes Christmas craft tutorial to learn how to make a decoration and a gift all in one craft.
Sometimes small or simple gifts need a little dressing up to make them feel more special. In this case, I’m talking about EOS lip balm. If you’ve ever tried that brand of lip balm, you know just how special it is. It makes a terrific gift that people love and can use.
However, it’s pretty simple and can use a little special packaging to make it really feel like a gift. I have a fun idea that’s going to transform this gift from “thanks, that’ll come in handy” to “wow, how awesome is this?”
This is a really unique and creative way to gift an EOS lip balm to anyone on your Christmas list! And it becomes more than a gift. This work of art is now a lovely piece of holiday decor to display.
How To Make An EOS Snow Globes Christmas Craft
I’m so excited to show you this simple and fun project! Here’s everything you need to know.
You will only need a few supplies to make this great gift in a jar. I’ve included a few handy links to help you find some items faster and more easily.
- EOS Lip Balm (I used the special holiday pack with white, red, and aqua)
- Ball Collection Elite Wide Mouth 16Oz Pint Jars
- Assorted Holiday Miniatures
- Artificial Snow
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun (Low temp works best in this case, so it can be easily removed later)
Follow along with our step-by-step instructions for how to make a snow globe using EOS lip balm as the star below.
Start by using a dot of hot glue to stick the lip balm to the upside-down mason jar lid.
The low-temperature glue is just enough to hold the lip balm in place and also allow it to be removed by the recipient and the hot glue chipped off.
Next, I added a miniature holiday figure to the top of the lip balm again with hot glue. On this version, I used a snowman on top of the white EOS lip balm, but any holiday-themed miniatures will work for this project.
Again I used hot glue to put everything together.
Finally, add a bit of the snow to the mason jar while it is right side up (above), then add the lid to the top and screw on it.
Turn it over – this gift is ready for giving! Feel free to add a bit of ribbon around the lid band to dress it up a little more if you want, but that’s completely optional.
I made two versions of this snow globe Christmas gift in a jar. The first version has the snowman, while the other version shown below has a miniature gingerbread house on top of the aqua lip balm.
Just use the same method to assemble any miniature lip balm combinations that you like inside of your snow globe.
Your recipient can enjoy the snow globe as decor for a while, then screw off the lid and take apart the gift to start using the EOS lip balm. Everyone loves a mason jar snow globe!
Here are a couple of questions that I see readers ask about making a snow globe Christmas craft with an EOS lip balm. If you have a question, please check to see if I’ve already answered it below. Don’t see your question? Leave it for me in the comments!
Can I use a different type of glue for this project?
Low-temperature hot glue is the best type of glue for crafting projects like this one because it’s affordable and provides the ideal amount of hold. However, if you don’t have a hot glue gun, I would recommend using removable glue dots.
You don’t want to use anything with a super strong hold, or that’s permanent because then your recipients won’t be able to remove the EOS lip balm from the jar lid.
Could I use glitter instead of artificial snow for snow globes?
I would highly recommend AGAINST doing this because it will create a mess that will last for weeks for your recipient. If that happens, your gift will go from being something appreciated and used to hated and thrown out!
Trust me on this one. Stick with using the artificial snow if you can find it.
I love that these fun Christmas gifts can be made in 15 minutes or less. Pick up your supplies and make an EOS lip balm snow globe for someone on your gift giving list.
These would be great to keep on hand for unexpected guests, hostess gifts, and holiday parties. It’s a fun gift that is practical too!
