Here's what you need to make a Dollar Tree Snow Globe Ornament:
- Poly-Fil Glasslets from Fairfield – 100% Glass Micro Beads
- Snow Globe Ornament – Dollar Tree
- Miniature Village People Sets – Dollar Tree
- Wine Cork – Recycled
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Craft Knife and Self Healing Mat
- Ribbon – Assorted
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
Here's how to create a 5 Minute Dollar Tree Snow Globe:
To begin the 5 Minute Snow Globe Ornament, gather all supplies. Small four-pound bags of Poly-Fil Glasslets from Fairfield are available at your local Joann Craft Store. I am lucky to have four Dollar Tree stores in my area and I love exploring all of them, as they always carry a different selection.
Roughly measure the depth of the lid of the snow globe ornament and then cut the recycled wine cork using a craft knife on a self-healing mat.
Attach the miniature village people, trees, etc. to the wine cork halves with a glue gun and glue sticks. Secure the people on corks inside the lid of the snow globe ornament. The lid is also the base of the ornament. You can use liquid craft glue, you just have to wait for the glue to dry, and y'all know that I am an impatient crafter.
Using the easy pour spout, fill the plastic dome of the snow globe ornament with several inches of Poly-Fil Glasslets. Screw the lid back on and flip the ornament right side up to reveal the snow globe.
To finish the 5 Minute Snow Globe Ornament, attach fancy trim around the base of the lid with a glue gun and glue sticks. Tie on a ribbon to the hanger portion of the ornament, and finish with a bow.
Quick and Easy Dollar Tree Snow Globe Ornaments
This quick and easy set of 5 Minute Snow Globe Ornaments with Poly-Fil Glasslets from Fairfield goes together in just about 5 minutes with limited supplies from Dollar Tree. The hardest part is picking out the people to put inside! Fun to give a set as a gift and keep one for yourself.
Poly-Fil Glasslets from Fairfield
Poly-fil® Glasslets from Fairfield are perfect for weighted blankets and sensory items. The small 100% glass microbeads are about the size of a grain of sand. Their rounded shape creates a uniform, smooth and slippery texture. They are ideal for weighted cross-fit, yoga, and therapy items, as well as corn hole or bean bags. The density of the glass beads provides the same weight in less space, a smoother, flatter feel, and more fluid movement than traditional Polly-Pellets. Use them as craft material for dolls and stuffed animals or as an art medium for home décor and frosted items. They are quiet, smooth, dense, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, and washable.
