I went to the Dollar Store with absolutely no idea what I was going to make on the hope that something would inspire me and I found this adorable glass bowl and decided to make it into a snow globe!! I wasn't sure what I wanted to use for the inside so I bought a nightlight and a magnet.

Here is the project



and the progress...

Holy craftness, that is too cool! Isn't it great how you can just wander the aisles to get fantastic ideas?! Does the top get loose at all while shaking it?

I filled it with water and glitter. And it the lid took me a few tries to get it not to leak. I found the key is to make sure the water doesn't touch the brim and then I hot glued it in and left it sit and completely dry before touching it. If the water gets in while the hot glue is drying it will cause the lid to pop out. I would recommend trying something other than regular glitter though, maybe test what you want to use in a glass of water first because now it is starting to get a little cloudy.

That is very cool. I wonder if glass glitter would work better? I have some for when I tried to make some ornaments for my sister last year. Not sure if it would be color safe, but thats easy to check for, and I think the larger pieces would make it less cloudy.

its worth a try! I think I may try a few things in just a glass of water as a test.
