Spooky Snow Globes
Clean, empty jars with a screw on lid (small jars work best, ex: baby food, pickle or smaller mason jars)
Spray paint or acrylic paint
1/4″ decorative ribbon (optional)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Fine grit sandpaper
Figures from Holiday Inspirations Halloween Decor collection at JoAnn Fabrics
*Before you start make sure that the base of your figure will fit nicely inside the lid and that your figure isn’t so tall that you can’t screw the lid back on!
Grab your sandpaper and scruff up the inside of the lids so that the hot glue will adhere to it better.
Glue the figures to your chosen lids and let cool.
With the witch, I decided I wanted her on an angle so that she looked like she was getting ready to take flight, so I just squeezed the hot glue incrementally into little mounds and let each cool so that I had a small mountain of hot glue at the base. Then I hot glued the witch onto it at an angle!
I then carefully painted each lid black and once they were dry I hot glued some decorative Halloween-y ribbon I found at JoAnn’s onto the edges of each lid to pretty them up some more.
Then fill each jar with water. You can add a few drops of glycerin to keep the glitter from falling down too fast but, personally, I found that the glycerin really didn’t make that much of a difference when I did a side by side test! Lastly, add your glitter and screw on your lids nice and tight.
Flip them over and have a spooky good time shaking up your new Spooky Snow Globes 🙂
