Tips to Make Snow Globe Dollar Store Craft
- If you can’t find a snow globe ornament at the dollar store, don’t overthink this. You can grab a jar or even upcycle a small jar.
- They don’t carry them at the dollar store (or at least, I didn’t see them at my store) but you can get tiny reindeer to pop into a cloche, too, if you want. I found the adorable mini-reindeer here.
- Oh, you don’t care for the little red holly bits that I used? That’s ok. Again, don’t overthink this–the dollar store has about a million different baubles and bits to add to your farmhouse candle holders (all of which are a dollar, so you could even grab a couple to try out).
How Do I Make this Snow Globe Candle Dollar Store Craft?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 3 Halloween battery operated taper candles
- 3 “canning jar” fillable ornaments
- Miniatures for Christmas scenes
- Floral berries
- White felt
- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
- Remove the skulls from the halloween tapers (if you know, you're like me and that's what you're using).
- Take the hanging parts off the ornament and discard. The tapers will fit nicely in the remaining hole.
- Trace and cut out the jar lid shape onto the felt, 3 circles for each ornament.
- Affix 3 felt circles onto the inside of each ornament lid.
- Glue the figurine on top of the felt circles.
- Replace the lid onto the ornament. Set aside.
- Wrap the buffalo check fabric around the candle taper, marking the size necessary to cover the taper completely.
- Cut the fabric to size.
- Hot glue the fabric in place around the taper. Allow hot glue to dry completely.
- Press the candle into the hole in the top of the ornament and hot glue in place.
- Wrap the joint between the ornament and taper with the greenery.
- Add little berries to the greenery.
