Make your own DIY Holiday Snow Globes and display a favorite ornament or create a magical snow scene.
You can use anything you have on hand to fill your snow globe and you may even have a few items on hand. I’m a stickler for proportion so it took me a little time to find all of the ornaments and miniatures I needed.
I found the camper ornament, wood pile miniature, and fairy lights at Walmart. The elf on the horse and snowman are ornaments I had in storage. Pretty much everything else came from Dollar Tree.
So grab your hot glue gun and a bag of faux snow, then check out these four easy Holiday Snow Globe DIYs!
1. Pedestal Bowl Snow Globe
I love this snow globe. It looks expensive and sophisticated and only takes a few minutes to make with dollar store supplies!
Glue a Dollar Tree glass tapered candle holder to the bottom of a 5-6 inch glass bubble bowl. You can use super glue that bonds to glass but I recommend an epoxy like Gorilla 2-Part Epoxy for the strongest hold.
Fill with faux snow and place an ornament inside.

2. Charger Plate Snow Globe
This larger snow globe is a great way to show off a miniature snow scene.
To make one, you’ll need a Dollar Tree charger plate and a large clear plastic bowl, ornaments or miniatures, a floral pick for the top, faux snow, battery-operated fairy lights, and a hot glue gun.
Hot glue your ornaments, bottle brush trees, and miniatures to the charger plate where you want them.
Place the fairy lights inside your bowl first then add snow to the bowl. Next, flip the charger plate upside down. Add hot glue to the edge of the bowl to glue to the charger plate. For added decorations, hot glue a floral pick to the top and add ribbon or decorative rope around the edge (optional).

3. Ornament Ball Snow Globe
Cut the top off of a large, 5-inch clear plastic ornament ball. Mine was a very thin plastic so I was able to use scissors. If you have thicker plastic, you may need to use a Dremel to cut it.
Hot glue your ornament to the center of a 3.5 to 4-inch wood slice first then fill the clear ornament ball with snow.
Work with the ball upside down and add hot glue to the open edges to glue the wood slice in place.

4. Mini Bowl Snow Globe
I found these mini round bowls from Dollar Tree and added a small forest of miniature bottle brush trees to make this adorable, rustic snow globe.
To make one, cut the base off of miniature bottle trees.
Next hot glue the miniature trees to a 3.5 to 4-inch wood slice where you want them and add snow to your mini bowl. Add hot glue to the edge of the mini bowl, then flip the wood slice upside down to glue it in place.
