DIY Snow Globe From Dollar Tree

I don’t know about you, but when I head to Dollar Tree with a plan, and everything is already gone, it crushes me. So if there’s any holiday deco (like globes or snow), grab those up because they might not be around next time!


Tips for Making a Dollar Tree DIY Snow Globe

  • This is a pretty simple tutorial but do your painting first.
  • Then, while that is drying, you can work on the rest of the craft.
  • Make sure you use enough hot glue to secure the trees and the top. You don’t want the kids to grab the snow globe, and everything falls out.

This snow globe would look fabulous sitting next to the Mickey Ho Ho HO Centerpiece on your mantle during the holidays. Plus, this would be a fantastic craft to do with kids.

3 thoughts on “DIY Dollar Tree Snow Globe”

  1. Dollar Tree fake snow did not behave as needed.
    All it did was float on the surface of the water.
    I have tried many other”snow” and glitter and each one is a bust!

    Any ideas?

    • Maybe try glitter instead of the snow? Maybe that will work better?

    • I used superfine glitter with filling the globe with water, but not all the way. Leave space to shake it when it’s closed up. Also glue the cap with E6000 glue and close it tight.
