Okay, I don’t know exactly what you would call this… There isn’t any snow but it is reminiscent of the snow globe concept. Anyways, let’s continue …
The boys and I are decorating our home for Fall/Halloween. In all actuality, it is more fall than Halloween. (We are not huge fans of Halloween) As I was browsing the internet one evening I ran across this idea, making your own “snow globe”.
The ingredients you will need:
Holiday accessories (here we have plastic spiders, bats, flys etc)
Light Karo Syrup (We used a pint)
Glue – the website I read recommend a silicone caulking glue- I used regular hot glue because that is all we had on hand
Glass Jar – I used a pint mason jar
Marbles or glass beads for the bottom of the jar
Confetti for some festivity
Glue a centerpiece to the underside of the cap and the marbles if you have them. (I glued a plastic bat.) Next add the floaters in the jar, followed by the syrup. Once you have filled the jar, carefully add the cap. *Please note: If your centerpiece is bulky or large you will need to take that in mind when filling the jar with syrup.*
Seal the cap on the jar with the glue. Again I used hot glue for everything except my ribbon. Next time I will probably go with the caulking solution…
When you are finished you have a homemade shaker! Accessorize as you see fit. As you can see I added a ribbon to the cap and later I put a spider on the top.
Now this is our first attempt. I can’t wait to make more a little more detailed.
