I love making snow globes which are festive for any holiday or season. You can make them so many ways – recycling old jars, using ornaments or even reusing plastic water bottles. The fun part is filling them with your own miniature scene, customized to you and your kids’ favorite things. Here are 7 ways to make a snow globe with fun ideas on winter scenes and various ways to put them together.
