Capture the whimsy of a magical wintry day with handcrafted snow globes. First, choose a plain glass jar; spray-paint the lid a pretty colour and let dry. Next, using epoxy glue, attach a figurine or ornament to the bottom of the lid and let dry. Then fill the jar almost to the top with distilled water; add a little bit of glitter and a few drops of glycerine to the water — glycerine stops the glitter from falling too quickly. Screw the lid on tightly, shake and voila! Use them to decorate your home or give them as cute hostess gifts.
