I'm one who concentrates better when I have something to quietly play with, so I made a snow globe to have at work -- little hurricanes in my office every day  Grin

I probably could have done a better job photographing it, but eh!

http://udandi.com/projects/snowglobe.jpg


clean glass jar and lid
plastic trinkets
confetti/glitter
distilled water
glycerin
heavy duty glue

Sand the lid where you want to glue on the trinkets - make sure if the jar is curved that you place the trinkets so they fit inside the jar (does that make sense?!).
Fill the jar with distilled water and a little glycerin (I eyeball everything).
Glue the threads of the jar so the lid is permanently adhered.
I guess you could paint the lid, but I didn't!

 Smiley Oooh, pretty!

We used to do these in bible school, but I remember using corn syrup. Would it still work the same?

I would think crazy glue would too, as long as it can get wet.

I never thought of using the corn syrup but I that would work in place of the glycerin and make it a little more viscous.
