This is perfect for all ages, this is meaningful, and this is fun as well. I used to think people who made their own snow globes were practicing some sort of wizardry, but I was pleased to learn that it’s not too difficult to make. And with a toddler and a baby on the way, it seems we will never tire of using our photos to please the grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, etc. I once bought Scarlet a DIY snow globe kit, but it was nowhere near as cool as making a photo snow globe. So please, enjoy this simple tutorial! I have photos of the process and also of the finished product, so you can see the whole journey from start to finish. Have fun creating! It’s a fun one. Photo gifts are always the best gifts. Whether you’re making canvas picture prints or DIY gifts, these will be a hit.

Homemade Photo Snow Globe:

What You Need:

Plastic snow globe (from most craft or hobby stores)
Photograph
Cardstock
Laminating pages
Scissors
Waterproof glue (hot glue will work)
Other decorations, if desired
Glitter
Water
½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin, if desired

This homemade Photo Snow Globe makes an easy and affordable gift, and is meaningful for loved ones of all ages. Follow this simple tutorial.

What You Do:

1 – First, take a picture of the children against a white background.

2 – Using your favorite computer program, insert the image and size it to fit the snow globe.

3 – Print the picture on card stock and then cut the picture from the paper.

4 – Laminate the picture to seal it. Cut any excess laminating sheet from the picture leaving a sealed edge around the picture to avoid water leaking through any gaps.

5 – And then, fold down the bottom edge of the image so the image can stand.

6 – Remove the twist bottom from the snow globe and pop out the inner cap.

7 – Attach the image to the pop out cap using glue. Add any additional decorations desired. Allow the glue to dry completely before proceeding.

8 – Fill the globe with water and the desired amount of glitter. Stir to disperse the glitter. You can add a small amount of glycerin to help slow the float of the glitter.

9 – Over a sink, place the cap back into the globe allowing any excess water to run out. Wipe the outside of the globe dry and replace the cap.

10 – Enjoy!
