On The Fourth Craft of Christmas

On the 12 days leading up to Christmas Eve I’ll be sharing with you some of my favourite Christmas-based crafty activities from all over the internet. (Most of them will be – or have been – tried by yours truly!)

Today’s Christmas craft is another one I attempted last festive period, and decided to do again this year! Spectacularly predicted by Christa

On the Fourth Craft of Christmas, I will share with you:

DIY Glitter Snowglobes!

Did I mention I really like glitter?

I’ve given these another go this year. Contrary to my Next Time notes, I did not add less glitter, because, whatever, glitter. ALL THE GLITTER.

It’s amazing what you can do with a glass jar and some sparkle!

I also changed one of the centrepieces (read: recycled cake toppers). I really like the sack of presents, and it fits better in the jar than the Santa legs! I also added more glycerine to give the glitter and water a bit more thickness and swirl.

A bit of a thicker swirl with more glycerine!

I love these as a craft activity. Much the same as the tea light holders from Day 1, they don’t have any dangerous bits, so are perfect to make with any kids you have, or by yourself with a cup of tea whilst humming along to Christmas songs (aka, how I do most of my Christmas crafts!). They’re also easy enough for you to just enjoy doing in an afternoon so no bits and pieces laying around and getting in the way. Brilliant!

There are so many crafts you can do with recycled jars! Have you re-appropriated any glass jars lately?
