DIY Disney Frozen Olaf Snow Globe – a waterless snow globe with miniature trees and glitter snow.
We have officially switched to Christmas mode in our home. The Christmas music has been playing almost daily, Christmas movies are being watched, and I’ve even managed to get a little gift shopping done. To add to our holiday spirit the weather is cooling down here in California. Our trees are starting to turn their beautiful orange, yellow, and red color. While we may never experience a white christmas we can certainly live vicariously through our friends across the country and recreate our faux white Christmas in our home. This year our decorating theme is White Christmas with a splash of gold. The kids have their own little section of the living room that they’re turning into a Disney Frozen winter wonderland. Have you noticed the Frozen craze? It’s been around for awhile but with the holidays coming up I’m noticing more Frozen merchandise than ever. I mean they’re now making Frozen jelly beans and perfume for kids. Say what? Yeah, I’m not quite sure about that one just yet but hey I’m all for Frozen crafts. Of course after our Frozen Elsa Pumpkin, Olaf Pumpkin, and DIY Elsa Costume we needed a few Frozen Christmas crafts.This waterless snow globe is made with a plastic snow globe from Michaels, buffalo snow, glitter, miniature trees, and an Olaf figurine from Amazon. I ordered a 3-piece figurine set from Amazon, but I don’t see it available anymore. I’ve shared a similar set below (affiliate link).
Plastic Snow Globe (Michaels)
Disney Frozen Olaf Figurine
buffalo snow or glitter snow flakes
white or iridescent glitter
hot glue or e6000
blue glitter tape
Step one: Use hot glue to attach Olaf and trees to the base of the snow globe. If you think the snow globe will be shaken frequent by the little ones I suggest using a stronger glue like e6000.
Step two: pour faux snow and glitter into the globe. You don’t need a lot, just enough to cover the bottom of the trees and Olaf.
Step three: Once the glue has dried turn the base (holding Olaf and trees) upside down and attach to the globe. Ensure that it’s on tight and turn right side up.
Step four: add blue glitter tape (love this stuff!) to the lid.
My kids love their Olaf snow globe! Stay tune for more Frozen crafts over the next few weeks. We’re working on a special one for my daughter and I can’t wait to share!
