The holidays are here, yet again! We take so much time to concentrate on our immediate family’s gifts but also have so many more loved ones to give presents to. The hardest part is to avoid breaking our bank accounts. This simple do-it-yourself project is a great way to provide a personalized gift that is easy on your wallet and only takes a few minutes to put together using Super Glue!

Materials Needed:

  • Super Glue
  • Clear Mason jar with lid
  • Fine glitter
  • Water
  • Tiny Christmas figurines

Almost any clear jar works for this project, you can use baby-food containers, spice containers, or even pickle jars. Once you have found your set of jars, now you can use your imagination to create a beautiful whimsical winter season inside your snow globe.

Choose either plastic or ceramic figurines that fit inside your globe. Stay away from metal that will rust. You can use a small pine tree figurine and/or a small animal, anything you want! The best thing about this project is that you create a totally unique snow globe for each person.

Step 1: Begin by adding a few drops of Super Glue to the bottom of your figurines and mount them to the inside of the jar’s lid. Super glue will dry in seconds and provide you with a lasting, strong hold which will keep your figurines in place even when you shake your snow globe.

Step 2: Fill the jar with water and add in the fine glitter. Fine glitter will create the snowing effect; just add a few pinches of glitter – too much glitter will make the jar look foggy.

Step 3: Add a few drops of Super Glue around the inside of the lid and close it tightly to ensure that no one accidently spills glitter or water all over themselves upon opening their gift.

It’s that time of year again. Is your house prepared to host a spooky gathering? Halloween Candy Jars are a great way to decorate your home and provide sweet treats at the same time. This simple DIY can be created with only a few items without sacrificing your wallet.

To begin this project you will need candlesticks, jars, knobs, black spray paint, and super glue to hold everything together.

You can begin by spray painting your candlesticks, lids, and knobs and leaving them out to dry for about 15 minutes. Once each item is dry, super glue each piece together.

Super glue is the perfect adhesive to assist in small projects such as this one. Using a little goes a long way and dries very quickly making it easier for you to get your project done quickly. Just a small dab can glue the knob to the top of the lid and another small dab can glue the candle stick to the bottom of the jar!

Purchase your favorite Halloween candy and fill the jars. For some goriness, you can also purchase some fake blood and add a bloody handprint around the jar!

A great thing about this project is that you can reuse these jars during the holiday season and all you need to do is add a candle and you’ve created a new look. Enjoy!
