How to Make a Snow Globe (Day #10)

December 15th, 2010

** As a reminder, regularly scheduled FULL episodes of “The DIY Dish” will begin again in January.  In the meantime, we hope you enjoy some casual “quick clips” of projects in our 12 Days of the Holiday DIY Dish. ** 

Gather your children because this is one that we think they’ll really enjoy making!  It makes for a great family project and uses  materials you probably already have around your home! 

Although there are a variety of ways and materials for doing this, here’s a quick tutorial on how we like to put them together. 


So enjoy bringing a little bit of “winter” into your home! 


On another note, we just learned that The Nate Berkus Show will be re-airing the episode we were on in October!  So if you missed it the first time, it will air on Wednesday, December 15th.  Visit to find out the time and channel it will be on in your area, or check your local listings.  It was such a memorable and fantastic experience for us –we’d love to have you be a part of it!

    Congrats on the Nate Berkus show!!! I happened onto this site looking for a fabric bead necklace tutorial and was soooo excited because I met the two of you at Spark. Well, I will be following this blog. I love your creativity. I am going to use the card/ flower pin combo for christmas teacher’s gifts.

    My local Amer Sewing Guild group was thrilled with the shoulder bags we made a few
    months ago. I am lined up to teach a class in March so they can all have one. Some
    couldn’t wait and are now members of this group, viewing all your tutorials.
    My 8 year old grandchild made one for her teacher gift too. Thanks a
    bunch and have a Merry Christmas. Marietta Brown, Florida

    Ok…I maybe the only one who does not know the answer…but I am going to ASK it….

    What is the purpose of Glycerin?

    Hi Connie! Adding the glycerin allows the “snow” to fall more smoothly in the water. That was a great question!

    Hi Ladies! I’m watching it RIGHT NOW! You two are the sweetest, and it gave me a brag moment with my family to show them our photo together from Blissdom10. Congratulations on all of your successes and for taking us all along.

    Wishing you both a wonderful Christmas.
