I have a love/hate relationship with glitter. I can’t deny my children of the mess because I can understand its appeal. This glitter globe is a simple recycled project because you can use an empty glass jar and a knickknack picked up from the thrift store. We’ve had this little fairy for a while now intending to make a snow globe. I looked at quite a few tutorials, but ended up following this one from Robert Mahar over at the Junior Society. I used a plastic cap to elevate the little fairy so she wouldn’t be flat to the jar top (or bottom, depending on your perspective). I think I’d like to add some satin ribbon around the base.
So naturally when you leave tiny little glitter (thanks, Martha) on a table within a kid’s reach, this might happen. My six-year-old did some experimenting with “magic potions”.
Then it turned into this. Then it was time for a bath.
