Snow globes or snowglobes are so fun to make and easy too! There are lots of ways to create a festive DIY snow globe. Like the waterless snow globes, glycerin snow globes, baby oil snow globes, decorative snow globes and even faux snow globes. Either way everyone likes to make there own version of snow globes. Today I am sharing a DIY fishbowl snow globe tutorial. I had been wanting to create something festive for the holidays. Something that brings the feeling of Christmas and Winter. And that’s how I came up with the idea of using my fishbowl to make a snowglobe.
Let’s have a look:
DIY Fishbowl Snow Globe
I like the traditional snow globes with snowman and Christmas trees.
But I personally love to make a snow globe with anything you think is special and relative.
I came up with the idea to use modern Christmas trees, cute little ornaments and jingle bells.
To make it look festive I used glittered items and lights.
Let’s get to the tutorial.
Modern Snow Globe Tutorial
You will need:
~ LED Mini Lights (mine are battery operated – from Target)
~ Glittered Holiday Items (Christmas tree, ornaments and jingle bells)
~ Circular wood stand ( From Target)
Once all your material is ready. You simply have to put it together.
Place your fishbowl on the base.
Make sure you clean your fishbowl first. Then put some salt in it. Once you are satisfied with the amount of salt ~ snow in your bowl, stop.
Now for the fun part. Put your decorative items inside the globe. Play around with them, till you are satisfied with the look!
Finally wrap the lights around and you’re done.
Isn’t it adorable!
We love having it in our home. My kindergartner loves switching it on at night. It looks cute and festive.
Have fun making your own fishbowl snow globe.
