Christmas Gift Idea - House Pets Faux “Snow Globe”

We all love our pets and this is an idea you can give to a pet owner for Christmas. You can find lots of little figurines of house pets, especially dogs and cats and create a faux snow globe displaying their pet in a winter scene. For this project, figurines of pugs were used and look really cute with them being out in the “snow”. You can upcycle a jar for this project to keep the costs down.

 

 

House Pets Faux Snow Globe

For this project the following supplies were used:

Snow Globe Supplies
- a jar
- fake snow
- small fake fir tree
- figurine of favorite house pet - here two different pug motifs were used
- washi tape
- double sided foam adhesive
- toilet paper roll plus piece of cardboard
- tacky glue

Instructions:

Snow Globe Tutorial 1
1. First cover the jar lid rim with washi tape to give it a festive look. If the tape is wider than the side of the lid, simply press the remaining tape over the outside of the lid.

2. Because the figure would be half covered by the rim when it is in the jar, it needs to be raised. A piece of an empty kitchen paper roll or other roll was cut into a slice and covered with a piece of cardboard to create a base for the figure and tree.

3. The base is then adhered to the inside of the rim with glue. Place the side up that is covered with the cardboard. Then cover this with foam tape (you could use glue if you want). Then press the tree and the figurine onto the tape.
