Simple snow globe to make yourself!

Photo by The 36th Avenue
Don't you just love snow globes at Christmas time (and really, all winter)?  I received my first snow globe as a gift when I was very young.  I wish I could remember where it is now. I believe it had a black base and there was a snowman inside.  I've always found something very enchanting about snow globes.  You can read some of my thoughts here: Living in a Christmas Card.

I've even tried to make my own a time or two, with baby food jars and so on.  It never worked out all that well.  But this DIY snow globe from a plastic cup, from Desiree at The 36th Avenue, looks much more foolproof.  The plastic cup, or tumbler, Desiree used has bubbles built right into it, so this snow globe looks as if it is snowing all the time, not just when shaken.  She said that she found the bubbly cup at Target, but I imagine they wouldn't be too hard to find.

If July's heat and humidity are getting to you as they are to me, why not gather your supplies and make one of these simple snow globes?

  3. That bubbled cup makes all the difference - such a great idea.

    1. Doesn't it? I almost never get to Target, so will have to see if Walmart or the Dollar Tree have anything similar.
