Starbucks has these super cute snowmen gift cards this year that work perfectly for snow globes.
I only needed a few ingredients to make my own snow globe and I already had everything on hand in my house. Bonus! I used an old pickle jar. I dumped out the last few pickles and cleaned the jar.
If you want your snow globe to last awhile, be sure to use distilled water or cooled boiled water. This helps prevent mildew and cloudy water. I added a tablespoon of light corn syrup to make the glitter and sequins fall more slowly.
To create the scene, I added little bottle trees from Fancy Pants Designs in front of the Starbucks card. I used Gorilla Glue to adhere them. Be sure that you use an adhesive that will not break down in water.
I wrapped the Starbucks snow globe with a gift card that said: In case of emergency, break glass. Of course, she wouldn't really need to break the glass to get the ornament. Just turn the jar right side up and unscrew the lid!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend. I'll be back on Monday with tutorial for paper ornaments.
