Snow globes are magical and made me instantly think of winter! Create DIY Christmas snow globes for yourself as decor or as a personalized gift.
I LOVE Christmas snow globes. In fact, I used to have a huge collection of snow globes from around the world. In my various moves, the snow globes had to go bye bye, but it doesn’t matter . . . I’m still obsessed with them.

These are all slightly different and will give you some great inspiration. If you are wondering how to make a snow globe, scroll down and pick an idea that is right for you!
