  • Start off by removing the lid from the jar and setting it aside. Take your desired figurine, apply epoxy glue to its base and glue it down to the gasket.

  • Press the figurine down on the gasket for 30 to 60 seconds to make sure it won’t come off when submerged into the water. Tip: To help figurines stay on, sand paper the gasket.

  • While the glue is drying, take the jar and fill it to the top with distilled water.

  • Pour a dash of glycerin into the water.

  • Pour desired amount of glitter and snowflakes into the jar.

  • Take the lid with the figurines and seal the jar. The figurines should be hanging upside down from the top of the jar during this step.

  • Flip the jar over and watch the snow trickle down in your new snow globe!
