DIY Snow Globe With Bottle Brush Trees and Epsom Salt

DIY snow globe with Epsom salt and bottle brush treesI’ve been wanting to make my own snow globe for a while now, so I went to the craft store and bought all kinds of supplies, enough for several snow globes.

I started with a really easy one that took me only minutes to put together.

  • cloche or glass vase
  • plate
  • Epsom salt
  • little tree brush trees
  • miniature animals or figurines

You could obviously decorate your snow globe with anything you’d like or have handy — little Christmas ornaments or bells, Santa or little snowmen.

It only took me a few minutes to do all this, and I decided to not glue the cloche to the plate.

The nice thing about this DIY snow globe is that you can just undo it and reuse all of the supplies for another project.

Or I could exchange the deer with something different in a few days or for the next holiday season.
