Are you looking for the perfect gift for grandparents, or other loved ones? Try this fun craft with your kids! These photo snow globes are so fun and easy to make. You can use a photo or any meaningful item or figurine you want.


What you’ll need:
  • Sealable jars (Mason jars work great but you could use anything!)
  • Glitter
  • Hot glue gun
  • Water
  • Item(s) to put in the snow globe
  • If using a photo, use a spray waterproof sealer, to keep it looking great in the globe. You could also laminate the photo.
  • Ribbon



Glue photo or item to lid. Add water and add glitter (some like to add A LOT of glitter). Seal up the jar. Using a little hot glue around the rim is not a bad idea for an extra tight seal. Decorate your snow globe with festive ribbon. Give it a good shake and enjoy. Using photos with grandparents makes a great holiday gift!!
