Create HAPPY!  Make a SNOWGLOBE!!! 

Growing up I always looked forward to SNOW DAYS!!!  Staying HOME from school and playing in the snow!  One year, with the help of family and friends, I decided to make the biggest snowball ever.  We started at the top of neighborhood road and slowly pushed the snowball downhill.  When it reached 8 feet tall we couldn’t  move it one more inch!  That snowball remained until mid July…literally took forever to melt!  So much fun!

 

Now that I live in Florida, I had to come up with a creative way to have snow in my yard.  I have created a small section of my yard to be the “SNOW GLOBE GARDEN.”  That’s right…it’s a garden filled with snow globes!  Or have you thought of making snow globes for Christmas gifts this year?  Here is a simple way to make snow globes for you and your friends:

Things you need:
Glass Jar, Plastic or Ceramic Figurines (no metal, it will rust), Rock, Epoxy, Water, Glycerin (available at drug-stores) and Glitter.

 

1.  Scratch inside of lid with rock to create rough surface.

2. With clear drying epoxy, adhere the figurine to the lid.  (I found a life-guard stand and Santa for mine at Michael’s).

3.  Let dry overnight.

4.  Fill jar with distilled water; add glitter, and a dash of glycerin to keep the glitter from falling too quickly.

 

5.  Screw on the lid tightly, being careful to not dislodge the figurine.

Shake, shake…let it SNOW!
