Have you guys seen Planes the Movie? It’s a big hit in our house! Owen about died of excitement when I made this and gave it to him! He was SO happy! And finally finally understood why he could only have two of the three Disney Planes Micro Drifters (On rollback for $5.97 at Walmart along with LOTS of other Planes items that I’ll list at the bottom of this post).
Anyway, to make one of these super cute and awesome snowglobes, you will need:
Micro Drifter (We used Disney Planes Dusty out of the 3 pack)
Tiny mason jar
Baby Oil (or glycerin but the 3 Walmarts I went to were all out)
A Glass drill bit
A handy husband (this part is optional)
I used twine and coated it in wax because my husband didn’t think the twine would withstand lots of water for very long. He’s probably right in the long run, but coating that string in wax was ridiculously time consuming! Maybe try a different string? I’m not sure.
Either way, tie your plane up, wiggle the string through the hole that your handyman just drilled through the glass for you.
Once you have it hanging where you want it, glue that bad boy in place! I used glue gel – less drippy than regular super glue and I feared that regular super glue would somehow drip through the hole and into the jar or on the plane.
Next, flip it upside down and cover the bottom in glitter. Glitter first.
Then fill to the brim with water! BRIM or there will be a weird pocket of air once you flip it right side up.
Add in a few drops of baby oil. And by “few”, I mean like 10-15 depending on the size of your jar. (I used a jar a little bit bigger than this one for another Snowglobe and it needed about 20 drops). Play with it, see how much glitter and oil you think you need.
A lot of people use glycerin instead of baby oil but the three Walmart’s I went to were out. And they said they usually are this time of year.
Add the lid, flip right side up, give it a good shake & test it out – see if you need more glitter or oil or water. Once you’re satisfied, glue that lid right on (Optional of course but seeing as how this was made for a 3 year old, gluing the lid on seemed like the best idea)
I also snagged up a Flight to the Finish Speedway while it was on rollback as a Christmas gift! He’s going to flip out when he sees it!
