This weekend, we had a little Christmas crafternoon with a friend and her four little boys. One of the crafts on the agenda were these little snow globe ornaments. The turquoise trees are dollar store trees bleached and then dip-dyed in an Easter egg decorating dye.
My husband had a great suggestion that the boys would be interested in matchbox car snow globes. Hot glue the tree to a hot rod.
For the basic construction of the globe we used this Mr. Poppers Penguins tutorial by Ugga Mugga and modified it a bit for what we had on hand. This tutorial using plastic wine jars by My so called crafty life is also a great idea, but I could not find those particular plastic wine glasses. This craft definitely requires adult supervision and assistance because of the hot glue involved as well the construction requires making a small cut in the top of the plastic for the globe to hang.
The kids were really pleased with their finished globes.
Have a great week and happy crafting,
