Things are a little lonely over at our house this week. The hubs is out of town, so we are Jonny-less. It’s all very sad.
The exciting part is that he is in Arkansas, starting his new job! We never imagined that we’d be living in a tiny little town in Arkansas, but life can be funny that way. We’re sad to be leaving our friends in Ohio, but very excited for a new adventure! He’s just gone for a week, then we’ll all move out for good in January.
Jonny is the glue that holds our little family together. I’ll be surprised if we all survive the week… we tend to fall apart without him! So be impressed that I was able to get a post done. Somewhere in between preparing for the move and mourning the absence of my other half, we snuck in a little Christmas joy and made a snow globe. It made me feel better, so I consider that a success.
Here’s what you need:
1 Plastic jar (I used a peanut butter!)
Hot glue gun
Small figurines (or whatever you want to be in your snow globe!)
You can find liquid glycerin at your local drugstore, by the lotion. It helps the snow fall more slowly in the water, and make it more magical looking 🙂
Start off by thoroughly cleaning and drying your jar. Then squirt hot glue in the middle of the inside of the lid. Be sure to leave a good amount of space around the edge, so you can still screw the lid on the jar. I did a couple of layers of glue to create a little mound, then added glitter at the end so it looks like a little snowy hill.
Then use the hot glue gun to attach your figurines. I used some cheap little Christmas decorations I found at Walmart. They ended up looking pretty good!
Fill the jar (not quite all the way full) with water and glycerin. I added about 3 teaspoons of glycerin per 1 cup of water, but you can do more or less. Add your glitter and give it a stir!
Line the rim of the jar with super glue and screw the lid on. Let it dry, and you’re done!
