Streetlamp snow globe tutorial

Let’s make this awesome little waterless snow globe shall we? It would make a sweet addition to your holiday decor and it’s a little reminiscent of Narnia, isn’t it?

*Pssst… if you like this project, be sure to check out my miniature winter scene in a book, and my wee garden in a teacup.

Onward!

I found this little streetlamp miniature at the dollar store alongside some train tracks and accessories. I liked this one because it actually lights up!

1. I glued the base of the lamp to the snap lid of a mason jar. I flipped the lid so it would be inside out… because the glue would hold better on the metal side.
2. Grabbed some fake snow. Again, from the dollar store (Dollarama here in Ontario)
3. Using some glue around the base of the lamp, I covered the lid with the snow.
4. I put a little extra snow inside the mason jar, some fine white glitter, and gently screwed on the lid. The wire for the light was very thin, so it didn’t interfere with screwing the lid on. PS, the glitter is sticking to the jar on its own, no glue used. Just static!

Flip the switch, give it a shake, and enjoy! How cute would a grouping of these on a mantle be in different sized jars….

And just to show you, it even looks cute when the lamp post light is off. The waterless snow globe just opens up so many possibilities, doesn’t it?!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on other little things to put inside a waterless globe!
