Solar Light Snow Globes



When you think of snow globes, doesn’t it make you feel nostalgic? There once was a time when snow globes were a classic Christmas item, and chances are, you had one as a child. Take the classic snow globe outside to add a warm winter glow to your walkway with this do it yourself project.



                                               Supplies:
Mason Jars
Miniature Snowmen
Plastic Snowflakes
Tacky Glue
Glitter Snow
26 Gauge Wire
Solar Mason Jar Lids (found in the craft store)

 I found these cute snowmen at Hobby Lobby...


I used tacky glue to add plastic snowflakes to the inside of the mason jars. The glue will be white but will dry clear. The snowflakes were on a strand and I cut them to have individual ones.



I added tacky glue to the bottom of the snowmen and placed them in the jars. I used tongs to help put the snowmen in place and then allowed the glue to dry.




I poured "snow" into the jars.






For each jar, I cut one piece of wire 12 inches long, then twisted the wire to form a loop at each end.


I cut a second wire that will wrap around the jar 4 times. I then threaded the loops on the first wire onto the second wire and wrapped the long piece of wire around the jar and twisted to secure.

Finally, I added the solar lids that I found at Michael's to the jars.



I hung the snow globes outside on hooks along my sidewalk and can enjoy the warm magical glow of a winter wonderland.

  3. These are adorable! Unfortunately, the lids from Michael's do not hold up outdoors. I had 3 of them on blue mason jars this summer. I didn't read the tags on the lid packages that said, "Not for Outdoor Use." Sorry to be a wet blanket.
