Snow globes are fun to watch, but these miniature glitter globes put a personal touch on the traditional wintertime trinket.
What You'll Need:
- Small baby food jar
- Acrylic paint and paintbrush (optional)
- Play dough
- Any small metal or plastic trinket
- Iridescent confetti flakes
Remove labels from the baby food jar. Wash and dry the jar thoroughly. If you wish, you may paint the outside of the lid with acrylic paints. Let the paint dry.
Then put a dime-size amount of clay on the inside of the jar lid, and stick the bottom of the trinket into the clay. Place 1 teaspoon of confetti in the jar; use more or less confetti depending on the size of the jar.
Slowly let water trickle into the jar until it's full. Screw the lid on tightly, and turn over the jar. Watch the sparkling glitter rain down!
