DIY: Faux Snow Globe

Ti's the season, very nearly, so I've been chucking sparkles and sprinkles about in a bid to whip up some festive cheer with a DIY Snow globe.

Now, strictly speaking, it's not a snow globe as there's no water in it, hence the faux, but it's a cute little addition to the decoration collection.

It was super quick and easy,  if you have a crack at your own don't forget to show off with #yourlittlewalls .

What I used:

- Glass orb (mine was from Tiger Store)

- Mini Bottle brush trees (or whatever you want to encapsulate in your dinky glass bubble!)

- Sequins

- Snow Sprinkles

- Craft Glue

What I did: 

  • I covered the inside of the base with craft glue and filled in with snow sprinkles.

  • (In hindsight it would have been nice to have added some extra height for a bit more visibility so if you have small pieces of balsa wood or something to fix in first that could be good!)

  • Fix the trees in place and leave to dry.

  • Fill the globe with sequins/ glitter/ sparkles of your choosing.

  • Carefully glue around the ridge of the globe (not too much in case it drips into the globe and leaves you with streaky glass.) and fix the base in place.

  • Stand back, admire, enjoy a mince pie or two.
