So I have never made a snowglobe before. Not even as a kid and I have always been so intrigued by them! I can't even tell you how many I have pinned over the years. I even once had a coworker make these gorgeous snowglobes for everyone in the office. No joke they looked like they were straight out of an anthropologie catalog.
This past year or two we have discovered that my brother in law loves squirrels. So we've embraced it and let me tell you we cannot stop buying him squirrel things. He might be alittle squirrelled out by now. So when I was planning this craft and stumbled upon this squirrel at Joann's I knew what I had to make!
Now the squirrel wasn't as tall as I'd hoped so I had to give him a bit of a platform. So I got crafty and searched my kitchen for some sort of pedestal to sit upon that you wouldn't notice. My water bottle lid seemed to be like a perfect choice. I gorilla glued around the edges and glued it to the inside of the lid.
Using the gorilla glue I applied it as instructed to the bottom of the squirrel and trees creating a woodland scene.
I let the squirrel and trees dry overnight to make sure the adhesive was completely dry.
No fill the jar with water. Leaving a little bit of room from the top of the jar. You don't want to fill it to high or it will overflow once you place the top with the woodland scene. Now you are going to add a splash of glycerine. I poured for about a second.
Next add tons of glitter! Add more than you think you will ever need. Just pour it in.
Place the lid back on the mason jar submerging your woodland scene.
And viola you have a mason jar snow globe! And it was so easy. Do you know what wasn't easy? Photographing it! The ridges on the jar make it hard to see this cute squirrel in the pictures. But I assure you it is the cutest in person! I might even have a slight squirrel obsession now!
Now here's the moment we have all been waiting for. What are the other party goers up to today? What did these ladies make with their mason jars?! Make sure to check them all out.
