I don't know about you, but as soon as I saw DIY snow globes on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to try it. So I found these cute jars with the red lids and little trees in the Target dollar spot (my happy place) and read a few blog posts about how to make your own and I attempted it......annnnnddd failed. It said to use a waterproof glue for the trees so I used E6000 glue but I must not have waited long enough because after a few shakes, the trees came loose and were floating around in the water. On top of that, the water started leaking from the lid and I knew this was just not going to work. I wanted something I could keep and get out every Christmas and with two littles, this water filled time bomb was just an accident waiting to happen. So I gave up and came up with something much more realistic.
