Glass is Life ™, One Michael Owens Way, Perrysburg, OH 43551-2999
It’s snowing outside so much lately, so why can’t it be snowy inside! We were very much in the mood to make a DIY on our snowy day but weren’t sure what kind of DIY to do. We wanted something that only glass could be a part of, so after a lot of thinking and Pinterest scrolling we came up with a Snow Globe! If our snow(wo)man and snow were placed in any other material you wouldn’t be able to see our Cosmo and all of his wintery details. Also, you wouldn’t want to display it if it were in a plastic bottle or an aluminum can. Glass is iconic and will let the sun shine through.
What you’ll need:
Hot Glue Gun
Le Parfait Jar
White Masking Tape
Black Masking Tape
Twigs (Optional, not shown)
Step One: Making the “body” of our snow person (snow person because we believe in equal opportunity!) Unravel a few cotton balls so that you have a thin see-through layer of cotton. Once you have a few unraveled, begin to wrap them around a new cotton ball. Quantity of cotton balls used will depend on the size of your Le Parfait jar and how large and burly you want your snow individual to be.
Step Two: Making Accessories.
Scarf: To make the scarf, determine your desired width and length and cut two exact pieces out of the felt. Measure the wire to be slightly shorter than the length and cut two pieces, as well. Use your hot glue gun to adhere the wire to the top and bottom long edge of the scarf. Glue the other side of the scarf on top to hide the wire. If you’d like to make the scarf extra fancy, you could cut some fringe for the ends like we’ve done or you could use paint or other fabric to add designs to it.
Mittens: Using some of the felt scrap pieces, we cut mitten shapes to create the gloves. Make sure to cut out four pieces so that there is a front and a back to enclose your wire or branch arms.
Hat: From another leftover rectangular piece of felt, we took the upper left hand corner and folded it down to the bottom edge. Cut both layers of felt with a curved edge (the felt should have a funnel shape after you’ve cut it). Tuck one straight edge under the other and glue them together. Glue pom pom to the end of the hat to give that classic winter look.
Nose: We used an orange pipe cleaner to create the nose. Wrap it around an end of a pencil to give it a funnel shape and cut off the extra pipe cleaner.
Arms: You could easily use twigs or use wire like we did (we weren’t feeling brave enough to venture out in the cold windy air). If you are using thin wire like us, just decide on your length of limbs and wrap it around a few times to give it some bulk.
Smile: Cut about an inch of black masking tape off the roll. Begin to roll and fold the piece until it has a 3D look. Bend the tape in the shape of a smile and place on your snow person.
Step Three: Putting it all together. Use your glue gun and add glue to a wide enough area that will support the middle portion of their body. Repeat to attach the head. Extra glue may need to be added to help give some support in areas. Then begin to glue and place all the bits and pieces to make your snow(wo)man come to life!
Step Four: Don’t forget to give them a name. We decided our handsome little guy was Cosmo the Snowman.
Step Five: After everything is in place, take a piece of folded-over white masking tape and attach to the bottom of the base to help keep the snow(wo)man in place once they’re in the jar.
Once they’re in place all you have left to do is make it snow! Take some packaging styrofoam that you may have left over from the holidays and rub together creating falling snow (enough that your Cosmo will enjoy).
Voilà! Your Le Parfait Snow globe is ready to be displayed. Give this a try the next time you and your kids are snowed in. We’d love to see it, so tag us and hashtag #betteringlass.
