Here's what you need to make a Waterless Snow Globe:
- Poly-Fil® Poly-Pellets® from Fairfield World™
- Glass Jar with Metal Lid – One Gallon Size
- Sisal Bottlebrush Trees – One Large, One Medium, Two Small
- Wooden Truck (I found mine in the Dollar Bin at Michael's) or check out this Red Truck Ornament
- Americana Acrylics by DecoArt – Country Red, Lamp Black, Slate Grey
- Paintbrushes – Liner #2, Round #2
- Ribbon – Red and Green
- Plastic Reindeer – Small
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Wire Cutters
Here's how to create a Snow Globe with Poly-Pellets:
To begin the Easy Christmas Truck Snow Globe, gather all supplies. Basecoat body of wooden truck with Country Red acrylic paint, let dry. Paint truck wheels with Lamp Black acrylic paint, let dry. Basecoat windshield, back window, and hub caps with Slate Grey acrylic paint let dry. Apply second coats of paint, if necessary. I love Americana Acrylics because they provide one-coat coverage on most surfaces, saving you time and money!
Remove the screw tight lid from your bag of Poly-Fil® Poly-Pellets® from Fairfield World™. Pour approximately three inches of Poly-Pellets® into the glass jar using the convenient spout. Poly-Fil® Poly-Pellets® from Fairfield World™ are plastic beads that are normally used to create bean bags, but don't you LOVE how they look like snow? Gather the rest of the snow globe supplies.
Place the large, medium, and one small sisal bottle brush tree into the Poly-Fil® Poly-Pellets® from Fairfield World™, burying the wooden bases. Remove the wooden base from the second small sisal tree with wire cutters, and then glue into the back of the red wooden truck. Add the red truck with a Christmas tree and the reindeer to the glass jar snow globe.
How to Make a Waterless Christmas Truck Snow Globe
Screw the lid back onto the one-gallon glass jar and finish with a Christmas bow. I hope you will use my Christmas Truck Snow Globe project as a jumping-off point to showcase YOUR Holiday home decor. Since there is no water in this snow globe, it is quick and easy to make in just 15 minutes with the kiddos. Have each family member add their own items to create a personalized keepsake. For an even quicker Snow Globe, use this Red Truck Ornament instead of painting your own.
