Small Snowman Figurines (make sure they fit inside the jar)
You can also find all of the needed supplies anywhere that sells Christmas decorations like a Wal-Mart, Target or JoAnn’s. Small figurines are easiest to find in the Christmas village section. You might even find jars with lids for $1 at Dollar Tree stores.
How to Make a Waterless Snowman Globe:
First, while your glue gun is heating up, wipe out the jar so there is no dust. Set the lid aside to use for later.
Decide where you want the figurines to set inside the jar. Once you’ve got your layout planned put little dollops of hot glue on the bottom of the jar and carefully put the figures in place. Make sure not to get glue anywhere else in the jar or else you’ll have snow in places you don’t want it.
While the glue is hot, place your snowman figurines in the bottom of the jar where you placed the glue. Be sure to set them exactly where you want them because you will not be able to move them once the glue cools and dries.
Once the glue is completely dry you can start shoveling in the snow. To simplify things and keep snow from sticking all over the figurines tilt the jar to the side and use a spoon to get the snow all the way to the bottom of the jar.
Fill the bottom of the jar with enough snow to cover the base of the figurines and keep filling till you’re satisfied.
Once the inside of your jar looks nice it’s time to close it up. Grab the jar lid and your glue gun. Line the lid with hot glue and then screw the lid on the jar. The glue will heat up the metal of the lid so be careful not to burn yourself.
Now you’re done! To make variations, you can try using larger or smaller jars and filling them with things like ornaments, pinecones, or lights. Be creative.
Enjoy making this easy DIY Waterless Snowman globes this Christmas!
