Waterless Snow Globe with Xyron

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all excited and getting ready for Christmas. In my case, I haven’t even put up the tree just yet. I was traveling for my daughter’s graduation and just came back yesterday. The children are finally home and we have started decorating the house today.

One of our family traditions over the holidays is to create a handmade ornament or Christmas décor. A few years ago, we made this cute “waterless” snow globe using a recycled candle jar and it turned out so cute, I wanted to create another one this year. Here’s what we made last year:

For this year’s snow globe, I bought a shatterproof water globe from the craft store. I started out by die-cutting my little houses on DCWV 80 lb. card stock with my Magnolia Doohickey house die. I assembled the house using my favorite Xyron mega runner adhesive. I also die-cut a circle to cover the bottom of the lid.

I adhered my little house on the lid, and added some embellishments to my scene. First I added the red bow to the house, and then adhered the pine tree and the reindeer on the lid. I also added the little light bulb.

To finish the design, I added some fake snow and iridescent confetti to the jar and closed the lid. You can add as many or as little snow as you’d like.

It is so much fun to keep shaking this waterless snow globe. Here’s a close-up look:

I hope you like my project today and got inspired to create your very own waterless snow globes. These are also great to give as gifts or start your family tradition by making your own ornaments/Christmas décor this year. Have a wonderful day!
