Make your own Christmas snowglobe
Every house celebrates Christmas in a different way. Whether you go all out or keep it simple, these decorations are perfect. Personalise each one for teacher gifts, place settings, Kris Kringle or just to add a little flair to your home.
- jar with lid
- hot glue gun (or plasticine)
- eggshells or glitter
- small toy or figurine
Step 1. If you are using eggshells, remove the membrane from the inside of the shells. This is important so your water doesn't go cloudy. Once the membrane has been removed, crush your eggshells ready to use.
Step 2. Using your hot glue gun, glue your figurine on to the inside of the jar lid. Make sure it's right in the middle so the lid will still fit on.
Step 3. Fill your jar with cooled, boiled water and sprinkle in your crushed eggshells or glitter. Glitter will give you a sparkly, shimmery look.
Step 4. Flip the lid and do it up on the jar nice and tight. If you are worried about leakage, run a little superglue around the inside of the lid before you do it up.
Step 5. Turn the whole lot upside down and give it a shake. You have your own Christmas snowglobe!
