DIY Easter Snowglobes

A super quick and easy Easter DIY that can be added to DIY Easter Baskets or made as a fun Easter craft with the kids, today’s Easter Snow Globes use just a few materials to make a gorgeous, customized snow globe that is truly one of a kind!

DIY Easter Snow Globe Craft

One of our favorite crafts to make for any holiday or occasion is homemade snow globes! We’ve made Christmas Snow Globes, Halloween Snow Globes and even special ones to give as birthday gifts.

Today, I’m excited to share with you our latest version: an Easter Bunny Snow Globe that is incredibly easy to make using a simple dollar store figurine.

If you want your snow globe to last for years, make sure to use a waterproof spray on the figurine a day or two before starting this craft to ensure that the paint and colors of your figurine doesn’t fade over time.

You can use a ceramic or plastic figurine, whatever you’re able to find. I used one I found locally but this assortment of bunny figurines from Amazon is so adorable, I kind of wish I had ordered these instead!

A couple quick notes about some of the other materials for this craft:

  • Use distilled or purified water to prevent adding harsh minerals or bacteria to your snow globe which can get gunky over time.
  • We use vegetable glycerine to help the glitter fall slowly when the snow globe is shaken up, and it also prevents the glitter from clumping.
  • I typically use 100% glycerine which you will only need a teaspoon or so of, but if you have to use an 85% glycerine, you will want to do 9 parts water to 1 part glycerine.
  • Vegetable glycerine is available at stores like Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, or specialty cake supply stores. You can also use it when making play dough to help it stay soft and give it a shiny appearance and it has several uses in baking as a preservative.
  • You can use any clean glass jar you have available – whether it’s a mason jar or a leftover food jar – as long as it has an airtight seal to prevent the water from leaking out.

Materials to Make an Easter Snow Globe

How to Make an Easter Snow Globe

Ensure that all craft materials and clean and dry before starting.

If you’re not sure if your figurine is waterproof, I recommend spraying with a sealant (like Mod Podge) 24 hours before starting to prevent the colors from running or fading.

Glue your Easter figurine to the inside of your jar lid. If your lid is quite deep, you can use a bottle cap to elevate the figurine so that it’s not covered up when the snow globe is assembled.

If desired, glue some decorative craft eggs around the figurine for added interest.

Set the jar lid aside to dry and cure as you prepare the “globe” portion of your snow globe.

Fill your jar about 3/4 of the way full with distilled water, then add about a teaspoon of 100% vegetable glycerine. (If using 85%, you will need to use 9 parts water to 1 part glycerine.)

Stir the glycerine into the water to combine.

Add the glitter, as desired, then stir to encourage the glitter to fall to the bottom of the jar.

Twist the jar lid onto the jar and give it a shake. If the glitter is clumping or falling too quickly, add a bit more glycerine.

Once you’re happy with how your glitter is falling, secure the jar lid with a bit of glue.
