How to Make a Homemade Snow Globe

SAFETY FIRST: Ask an adult to help with tools you haven't used before.

Shake up your winter routine with this easy-to-make keepsake. This DIY snow globe would be a perfect holiday gift for friends or family.


  • A clean glass jar with a lid. You can choose any kind of jar. Check your fridge for interesting shapes and sizes.
  • Distilled water
  • Glitter
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Small toy or figurine


Step 1: Choose a toy/figurine that will fit inside your jar.

Step 2: Glue the base of the toy/figurine to the inside of the jar’s lid.

Step 3: Add glitter to the jar. The more you add, the more “snow” you’ll see.

Step 4: Fill the jar with distilled water. Leave a little room at the top so it doesn’t overflow.

Step 5: Submerge the toy/figurine and tightly screw the lid on the jar.

  1. Can you use other things to substitute glitter?

  2. Will it work if I use wood glue or super glue instead of hot glue?
