Snow globes are such a fun and classic Christmas decoration! We made an upcycled version using some materials we found in our recycle bin. And, these fun decorations can be made totally wintery to keep up well into the new year!

Start with:

  • Round Cardboard Container (ours was a cheese box)
  • Cup Holder or Egg Carton (cut into shape for the base)
  • Thick Yarn
  • Cardboard
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush

Create it!

Step 1: Paint the inside of the round carton. Allow to dry.

Step 2: Paint the base and allow to dry.

Step 3: Glue yarn to the bottom of the round carton. 

Step 4: Create a tree, snowman or other wintery or Christmas scene from cardboard.

Step 5: Glue scene into round carton.

Step 6: Glue the round carton onto the base.

Christmas music in the background and maybe some apple cider warming on the stove - this is a fun upcycle craft for playdates or even as a family craft night!
