I never thought I’d be jumping on the Frozen bandwagon until I actually sat down with my toddler to watch the popular Disney movie…several times a week. Yes, we’ve joined the craze but I now understand why the movie is such a hit! I find the lyrics stuck in my head each day and night, after my son bursts out with “Let it goooooo! Let it gooooo!” serenades.

Because he’s been so into Frozen, especially the snowman scenes, I decided to put together a snowman snow globe he could play with each time he wants to build a snowman so to speak ;). I also wanted a snow globe that would serve as a cute Christmas gift.

Materials

  • Baby food jar
  • Baby oil
  • Distilled water
  • Glitter
  • Snowman (or other figurine)
  • Hot Glue
  • Ribbon

How I created the snow globe:

First, I gathered all the materials I needed and laid them out in front of me to see how everything would look. I’m glad I did this because when I saw how small my snowman figurine actually was, I realized I needed a little platform to lift it up in the jar.

Luckily, I found a votive candle with a little case that was perfect for my needs.

With the hot glue gun, I easily attached the candle to the lid, and then to the snowman.

I added some glitter and sparkly decor and then carefully attached the lid to the jar.  (Note: If you have little ones who are curious, it may be a good idea to glue the lid closed to avoid accidents.)

Lastly, I added a decorative ribbon to complete the look.

This was a relatively easy snow globe to make, and you can dress it up with whatever accessories you want!!
