My kids LOVE snow globes, so when I came across a Pinterest pin for a Fall Snow Globe, I knew we had to make one. I only had to purchase a few items, since I had most of what is needed at home.
Here is what you'll need to make a Fall Leaves "Snow Globe"
- A Mason jar. I already had a jar, but in hindsight, I would have rather used one that didn't have any writing or markings on the glass.
- Leaf Confetti. You can find it at almost any craft store or on Amazon.
- Moss. I used Frog or Terrarium Moss, but you can probably just use some that you find outside.
- Glycerine. This will help your leaves fall more slowly.
- A small tree branch
- Glitter (optional). What's a snow globe without some sparkle?
- Glue Gun
Hot glue the small tree branch and moss to the inside of the jar lid (Parents please help with this).
It should look like what's pictured below:
Now it's time to glue on the leaves:
Next fill your Mason jar with water and then mix in the Glycerine.
I used 4 oz. (I'm not sure if less or more would work better...I just winged it)
Next comes your glitter and leaves.
