How To: DIY Holiday Snow Globe

There's nothing small about the price tag on snow globes, and usually they're pretty cheesy. Even those two factors can't inhibit peoples fascination and glee of watching faux snow collecting on the tops of the ornaments delicately placed inside.

For those of us that enjoy snow globes, but not the price or cheese factor &mdash Well Worn has seized a great DIY opportunity thanks to Anthropologie's creative visual display of their jewelery. It's such an easy, inexpensive DIY project &mdash with easy to find components.

Here's how you can make your own snow globe:

&bull A jar of your choice (with a lid)
&bull Figurines or jewelery
&bull Anti-rust sealant for metal pieces
&bull Clear-drying epoxy
&bull Distilled water
&bull Dash of glycerin
&bull Large silver or white glitter

1. Use clear-drying epoxy to adhere your piece to the inside of the lid. Let dry per epoxy instructions.
2. After the epoxy dries completely, fill your jar with distilled or boiled water (after it cools).
3. Add just a dash of glycerin so the faux snow falls slowly &mdash like we all love!
4. Add as much glitter as you like. If you don't like the look of glitter, you can usually find faux snow at craft stores.
5. Screw your lid on tightly and shake away!
