This was the craft I was most excited about for the party! Create your own snow globe rings! These are great because you can put ANYTHING in them! I bought extra so the kids and I can play around and have fun!
First you want to start with the ring! I got mine from this cute Etsy Shop – Ingredients for Lovely. I bought the ring base and glass globe sets sized 20mm ring base, 30mm diameter of globe.
Then I wanted the kids to create an ice mountain type look to the inside of the ring, so using E-6000 glue I helped the kids glue a bunch of turquoise and clear rhinestones to the center
Make sure the glass globes will still fit around whatever you put in the center. SERIOUSLY, check before it dries! Once your sure it fits let the center dry completely.
Now to decide on your filling. I love the mini Styrofoam balls that I used on the invitations. I got mine from a travel pillow! But you can use glitter, iridescent flakes, etc…
Squeeze some of the filling into the globe. I will say DON’T overfill it, it’s surprising how little you need to get the look you want
Now add some glue to the edge of the glass globe and place it in the ring base, now HOLD IT until it dries enough to leave it. IF you use the styrofoam a word of warning, if you seal it (air tight) when you glue it together the balls will shrink and get stuck to the bottom and not move anymore. SO I just add glue to one side and the other making sure to leave a bit of space for air
Princess loved these rings as much as I did! She experimented with all the different fillers, her favorite was the iridescent flakes, but she added a TON, you can’t even see the rhinestone “ice mountain” anymore!
My favorite? I grabbed a dandelion from the backyard and shoved about half the fuzz into a ring! Seriously love it! Going to enlarge my ring base so I can wear it as a statement piece!
What would you put into a snow globe ring? I think I’m going to try succulents next? Just need to figure out a way to be able to add moisture to it when it needs it.
