Make a Snow Globe Picture


I love snow globes and making your own is really easy.  I made several years ago using old mason jars and found objects.  You can see that post HERE.

.

They are kind of addicting to make.  So after having made several with jars, I decided to try something new this year.  I came across a plastic shadow box frame at the thrift store and thought it would be cool to make into a snow globe picture!  It worked!  


Here's the things you'll need to make your own:  a shadow box frame with glass, a few small found objects for your snow globe scene, scrapbook paper for the background, glue, loose plastic snow (found mine at Hobby Lobby), and some tape to seal the back.

My found objects are 2 triangle pieces from an old building blocks set, a small plastic moose from the dime store, and vintage punch out letters that spell S-N-O-W.  You could use anything from small Christmas village trees and people, children's toys, gumball machine toys, whatever :)



Arrange your objects in the box and glue them in place once you're happy with it.


After you have everything glued in place and the glue has dried, attach the back of the frame leaving one side slightly open.  Pour a small amount of the loose plastic snow into the opening, checking often to see when you have added enough.


Finish securing the frame back and then seal with washi (or other light tack) tape.  This is just in case some of the smaller particles of snow slip out of the back.

That's it!  You're finished!  Easy peesy and would make a cute gift for teachers, co-workers, etc.  Think about what you could put in them...the possibilities are endless!

This would be an easy and inexpensive craft to do with your kids or grandkids!  I'm going to be hunting down more shadow box frames.  How about you?

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!!
