DIY Halloween Glitter Globe

DIY Halloween glitter globe

I’ve always wanted to make a snow globe, but snow wouldn’t be appropriate for Halloween, so I decided to make a glitter globe instead. I like Halloween more than Christmas anyway.

I got everything I needed at Michael’s (all Halloween decorations are 50% right now!) and it was under $10. I already had the super glue so I’m not factoring that into the price.

If you want to make one, read through my tutorial.

Step 1

Super glue your figurine and skulls to the bottom of your lid.

As you can see in the second image, I ended up moving the figurine on top of a bottle cap to prop it up a little bit.

Step 2

Fill up your Mason Jar with distilled water and add just a few drops of glycerin into the jar. Shake it around a little bit.

Pour in your glitter.

Screw the lid on tightly and you’ve got yourself a Halloween glitter globe.

  1. I think it’s very cool and has a nice effect. I’m wondering if adding a couple small chemical glowsticks ( loosely) might enhance it in a dimly lit room. The trick ( or treat) would be to get the glow sticks to settle behind the figure after shaking the ‘snow’ and almost silhouete the figure. Just a thought. I suppose just placing a small light behind the jar might do as well! Thanks for the post!

    • Aww, thank you! I love the little skulls too. They were actually on a necklace I found at Michael’s for $1. Good stuff!

    • Thanks, it definitely would be! Make sure they wear gloves though! You don’t want any fingers superglued together 😉
