DIY SNOW GLOBE
What you will need to make your Harry Potter Snow Globe is in this picture below. However, I have it displayed in a recipe list form to print out towards the bottom of the page. Have Fun!
How to Make a Harry Potter Snow Globe
- Distilled water (water without minerals tends to be cleared. Tap water works fine but distilled will look nicer)
- Glycerin (this helps the glitter to fall more slowly)
- Glitter, sequins, stars, etc. White and silver tend to look best. Waterproof characters about 1-2 inches in height.
- Snow Globe (on Amazon here)
- Glue (Hot glue gun or E6000 for best results)
- Waterproof characters – about 2 inches in height. (We used LEGO Harry Potter from sets we already owned.
I also think these Funko POP figures would work really well.
First, glue your characters onto the snow globe stopper. I recommend using E6000 but a hot glue gun will also work.
Next, fill your snow globe about half full of water.
Add your glitter, stars, sequins, and anything else you’d like in your snow globe.
Pour in your glycerin (about a teaspoon is fine) and stir. You can add more glycerin to help the glitter fall more slowly.
Fill your snow globe the rest of the way with water.
Hold your snow globe over the sink while you add the character that is glued to the stopper. Some water will overflow into the sink.
Twist on the lid and tighten.
Enjoy your DIY Harry Potter snow globe!
DIY Harry Potter Snow Globe
- Oil does NOT work the same as glycerin. You need to follow the directions below to get the perfect Harry Potter Snow Globe.
- The more glycerin that you have, the slower the glitter will fall.
- There is a chance that the glitter will stick to the characters. Simply get them wet before putting into the snow globe and this seems to help.
- If you’re worried about kids opening up the snow globes, simply use hot glue to glue it on.
- Placing your characters further back on the stopper will help them to not look so warped through the curved snow globe.
