Raise your hand if you think miniatures are awesome. (*Raises hand*)  Okay, I can’t see all of you, but I am assuming that was pretty much unanimous, right?  This time of year I always admire all of the little Christmas village whatnots, giggling over tiny trees and shrunk-to-scale buildings.  Amber from Salt Tree was shopping for just such miniatures when she had an idea that I love: the waterless snow globe!  She picked up a tiny street lamp and wanted to do something snow-globe-like with it, however she knew that electricity + water = bad.  But if you’ve ever worked with glitter, you know that it sticks to everything; adding a bit of it to the inside of a mason jar and giving it a shake gives a very similar effect to a traditional snow globe, but sans H2O to keep things safe.  [how to make a waterless street lamp snow globe]

Project estimate:

  • Mason jar or other glass jar, on hand
  • Mini street light, $1 and up
  • Faux snow, on hand or $1
  • Glitter, on hand
  • Glue, on hand

Total:  $1 and up
