It’s never too early to make Valentine items! We started decorating for Valentine’s Day after we finished taking down our Christmas tree. When I take down one holiday’s decorations, I like to go ahead and decorate for the next holiday coming up! That way my house always has a little decoration. This Valentine Snow Globe is so easy to make that you can even get your kids to help! They might even want to make one of their own. Girls and boys alike will love making these Valentine snow globes and they are easy make and to customize DIY Valentine’s Day decor.
Valentine Snow Globes Tutorial
Valentine Snow Globe Supplies Needed:
- mason jar
- hot glue gun/glue
- different colored paper
- sucker sticks
- ribbon or any other decoration you might want
- “snow”-micro foam balls
Directions for how to make a Valentine Snow Globe:
Start with your mason jar lid and rim. Glue the rim to the lid so that the whole top will be secure. Next, take your paper and cut out different shapes/objects that you would like in your snow globe. I cut out different size hearts and the word “LOVE”.
After you have cut out your shapes, grab your sucker sticks (these can be found at most craft stores and even some grocery stores). Put a dab of glue at the top of your stick and add a shape to it. You can even cut your sticks to make different lengths. This works well so that you can see more of your objects in your globe. Add shorter sticks in the front and taller ones in the back. Once your objects/shapes are glued to your sticks, glue the bottom of the sticks to the bottom of the jar lid.
Once everything is glued down, add your snow to your jar! Add as little or as much as you want. *I found my bag of micro foam balls at Target around Christmas time but I’m sure you can find them at craft stores! After adding your snow, screw the lid on your jar and turn it upside down! You have a Valentine Snow Globe. Now you can make even more of the same one to use as gifts for people or you can change it up a bit and use words like “Be Mine” and have a whole collection of Valentine Snow Globes to use for Valentine’s Day party decor.
Have you ever made a snow globe before? I’ve seen the fancy DIY ones with water and hard objects which are really cool but I wanted to keep these Valentine snow globes easy and mess free!
