If you're on the east coast you may be a little sick of the real snow, but we can never get enough of snow globes. For those times when the wind is blowing a little too much outiside, you can shake up a little winter magic of your own indoors. Create an entire winter wonderland by adding bristle brush trees and small plastic figurines, toys or whatever you imagine. Blizzards in a jar only take a few minutes to make, in three easy steps, but are a huge hit.
Let the kids shake up a storm of their own with this easy project.
Light Corn Syrup
Bristle brush trees and plastic figurines or toys
1. Fill a jar or bottle with equal parts water and corn syrup. Add as much glitter as you'd like.
2. Using the hot glue gun secure the bristle brush trees and figurines to the inside of the mason jar lid. After dry, place lid on jar.
3. Shake and swirl your jar around to create your own personal snow storm.
