Snow Globe Valentines.

I remember being entranced by them as a child and even today I love watching the "snow" inside drift slowly to the bottom. Audrey shares my fascination with snow globes so we decided to make some for her preschool friends in honor of Valentine's Day. To make Snow Globe Valentines you'll need: -glass baby food jars -2" styrofoam balls -pipe cleaners -glitter (we used Martha Stewart Crafts Tinsel Glitter) -glycerin -serrated knife -hot glue gun + hot glue sticks -spray paint (for the baby food jar lids) Start by painting the lids of your baby food jars.

They will need about 24 hours drying time. When your lids are dry you can assemble your snow globes. Next form the pipe cleaner into a heart shape. » Tutorial: Coffee Filter Flowers and Valentine’s Decor.
