Fun and Easy Salt Shaker Snow Globes

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Salt Shaker Snow GlobesHere’s a Christmas idea for you that’s super-duper fun and easy…and doesn’t cost a lot, either! It’s my salt shaker snow globes! They would make cute handmade gifts or just add a loop of jute twine or ribbon to the top and…taa daa… you have a unique ornament!

Baby KittyMy co-host Baby Kitty is busy unpacking the boxes and finishing up the Christmas decorations. He’d better hurry…it’s almost Christmas! Sooo…I guess I will be going it alone…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Salt Shaker Snow Globe Materials Here’s what you will need:
  • A pair of salt shakers (I found these cute round ones at Walmart)
  • Some festive ribbon (Mine came from Michael’s)
  • Teeny tiny ornaments (These came from Hobby Lobby…a set of 8 in the miniature tree section)
  • Faux snow (or you could use Epsom salt) Remember…these are waterless snow globes!
  • Hot glue gun
  • Tweezers
And here’s what you will do:
  1. Make sure the ornament can be inserted in the shaker. (Hint: Leave the little string on for this process since you will have to pull it back out.)
  2. Cut the string off of the ornament and then add a generous amount of hot glue to the bottom of the ornament. (Be careful not to get burned…ouch!)
  3. Using the tweezers, insert the ornament into the shaker. If possible, insert your finger into the shaker to position it and press down to hold it in place.
  4. Add a small amount of faux snow…you don’t want to cover up too much of the ornament.
  5. Replace the top, tie the ribbon and hot glue it into place.
  6. You may also add a little decorative embellishment if you like.

  5. Hi Debbie, Your salt and pepper shakers are really very, very cute. In fact they are really darling and cute.
