Wine Glass Snow Globe Ornaments
There’s something about snow globes that are truly magical.
Even as an adult they bring you back to the excitement of childhood during the holidays, especially the ones that play music.
Each year I make a new snow globe to either gift, or add to my Christmas decor.
Last year I made a photo snow globe for my sister.
I’m planning on making a few more this year and will write a post for it. Anything with photos are always a hit.
Another great Christmas gift are these pretty candle mason jar snow globes. You can find the toppers at most craft stores.
One of the most popular Christmas crafts on Our Crafty Mom is this woodland snow globe ornament.
It’s also made with Dollar Tree supplies.
Supplies Needed for Snow Globe Ornaments
The great thing about this craft is you can easily find the supplies at the dollar store or craft stores. Here is what you need.
- Plastic Wine Glasses
- Christmas Figurines
- Mini Bottle Brush Trees
- Christmas Tinsel Stems
- White Glitter Snow
- Cordless Hot Glue Gun
The plastic wine glasses come in a pack of 6 and they are already separated, which makes it so easy!
You can use the bottom as the base, or add a scallop bottom as shown in these pictures.
Tips for Making Snow Globes
You will find a printable craft card at the bottom of this post, so I will share a few quick tips first.
For the base, I used my Cricut to make a 3.5″ scallop circle using Cricut Design Space and glitter cardstock.
This is completely optional. You can also use the bottom of the wine glass.
Another idea is to use a wood round for the bottom. It’s a matter of preference. Use what you like best.
Decorate around the snow globe with silver or gold pipe cleaners. This will hide the dabs of glue that you add to secure the globe.
Fill the globe with snow once all of the figurines are glue down, then flip it over.
Otherwise you will have a mess. Ask me how I know this. 🙂
You can also use these as decorations and leave the hanger off. They add a festive touch to any space!
Snow Globes on Christmas Tree
Look how pretty they look on the Christmas Tree:
They have a bit of a vintage vibe to them, especially with the colorful green bottle brush trees.
My husband was a baker, so this one is my favorite.
For gift giving, place the ornament in a small square box with some paper shreds or tissue paper.
Add one of my free printable gift tags and you are good to go!
Think about gifts for teachers, neighbors, co-workers and anyone else you want to acknowledge this holiday season.
