Greetings from Canada and today my Maplelea Dolls and I thought we would share with you our craft for making Souvenir Snow Globes for your dolls. These WATER FREE Snow Globes are a fun and easy craft you can make with items you may already have on hand or items you can pick up easily and inexpensively at your craft and dollar stores.
Snow Globes have been a world traveler’s delight as you can usually find a snow globe of any country you visit year round in most tourist shops. Today I am making a Vancouver Canucks (my local hockey team) Snow Globe as a Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Souvenir. You can make yours to reflect your own home town, travels or place you would like your dolls to go.
To create your own No Water Snow globe you will need:
- A small container from the craft or bead section of your dollar or craft store, mine came in a package of 6 for $1.25
- A small object to use inside your container such as an Eraser, Bead, Stickers or Small Toy
- A Glue Dot for securing non-snuggly fitting items for the inside of your globe.
- *if using stickers a clear piece of Clear Plastic you would find on the backing of your sticker sheets or on the inside of windowed food boxes such as Pasta
Step 1- Assemble your supplies. Open your container and find an object you would like to use in your snow globe, make sure it fits snuggly in your container as the round eraser does in the photo above. If you are using something that doesn’t fit as snuggly use a glue dot to secure your object to the lid of your container.
Step 2- Once your item is in, place add some glitter to your container. I used sliver and blue – the colors of the Vancouver Canucks. The glitter is the “Snow” in your “Snow Globe”
Step 3- Cap your container, make sure it is secure and turn it over. Your Snow Globe is now ready to use and enjoy!
If you do not have an eraser to use you can easily use stickers.
Step 1- Assemble your supplies and open your container. Pick your stickers to use and get a clear piece of plastic sheet from either your stickers or the inside of a boxed pasta.
Step 2- Cut your plastic so that it will fit folded in half inside the container
Step 3- Add your stickers on each side of the plastic
Step 4- Place the sticker covered plastic in your container
Step 5- Add glitter
Step 6- Cap your container and turn over and enjoy!
I hope you have fun making your own no water Souvenir Snow Globes for your dolls. Today I used my Maplelea Dolls Saila, and My Maplelea Friend Doll “Stacy” and borrowed Maplelea Dolls Leonie and Jenna for today’s photos.
