We all know that Princess Aurora has her three good fairies, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. Each has her own signature color: pink, green, and blue respectively. I had a lot of glitter leftover from previous projects and other packs of glitter that weren’t going to be used any time soon. I also had a really cool glass bottle that previously contained a delicious rose soda. So I had the idea to create a glitter snow globe, but with a bottle. It’s super easy to make, but it is glass so please be careful because if you dropped it…well, it would be the pink and blue splattered dress disaster wouldn’t it.
|Supplies List:||Tools List:|
|Glass Bottle with a screw top||Funnel|
|A Variety of Glitter||E6000|
|Small Faux Flowers||Hobby Knife|
Before anything, I removed the labels from my bottle. I soaked the bottle in warm soapy water and removed any leftover sticky stuff using my hobby knife.
Then I dumped in my glitter using a makeshift funnel. I started with a small amount, filled it with water to see what it was like…and decided I needed more. A lot more.
If my bottle were empty, I think the glitter would have to reach at least 1/3 of the bottle height. I also used these flaky iridescent confetti that were really cool in this bottle.
I added a few faux flowers and filled up the bottle with water almost to the brim.
To secure my screw top, I used E6000 on the inside of the cap.
The pink/red glitters dyed the water pink. Which works out in this case.
I even made a giant bottle to represent Maleficent’s magic. It’s fun to see how the different bottle shapes affect how the glitter interacts inside.
It’s that easy. Sure, the cleanup was a bit much (clean up with a damp paper towel and toss in the trash, not the sink), but I got to recycle a few things and made something really fun to play with. If you are inspired to create this and you have children, I suggest using a recycled plastic bottle instead. The bottles got pretty heavy with the water and glass.
