Learn how to create a fun and playful photo snow globe out of old jars!
Photo of your choice (the size will depend in the size of the jar; we recommend 4×4 square prints or 4×6 prints)
Jars with lid (clean & dry)
Hot glue gun
Corn syrup, glycerin, or baby oil
Glitter, confetti, “fake snow”, pompoms (basically anything that you want to include in the globes)
Prep your photos by laminating them with the clear packing tape. Lay a few pieces of tape (enough to cover the entire surface) both on the front and back of the photos.
Tip: overlap the tape a bit to ensure that the image isn’t damaged by the liquid. Using the scissors, trim the edges.
Glue the laminated image on to the lid of the jar.
*The bottom of the image should be glued onto the lid.
Now you’re ready to fill your globes with the liquid(s) of your choice. We went with a 50/50 ratio of water and corn syrup because it gave the best “snow globe” effect with our add ins.
Note: If you opt into using baby oil, we receommend adding a few drops of glycerin, as it is tacky enough to slow down the glitter when the globes are shaken.
Last but not least, place your add-ins into the jar. Screw the lid on and your snow globes are complete.
