How to Make a Snow Globe Costume

To make a North Pole sign, first cut out the words “NORTH POLE” from brown paper. Then glue the paper to blue foam. You can also decorate the sign with snowflake shapes.

In order to make a snow globe, you need to print out a pattern, trace it onto acetate, and then cut it out. Once you have the pattern cut out, you need to tape it together.

The Blue Foam and Cut Out a Rounded Dimension From It

In order to make the base, you have cut it out through your waist’s measurement. Then take the blue foam and cut out a rounded dimension from it. Once you got that, you have to now use the thread and start attaching it with foam. In this case, I will suggest you maintain some gap between the umbrella.

It’s better if the foam and rounded portion are in the same place as your waist. That way, your DIY snow globe costume will look better.

Step by Step Guide: How to Make a Snow Globe Costume

Gather Your Supplies

To make a snow globe costume, you will need a large clear plastic container, white felt, silver glitter, sequins, fake snow, hot glue, scissors, and a hot glue gun.

Cut the Felt

Cut two circles out of the felt, one larger than the other. The larger circle should be about double the size of the smaller circle. The larger circle will be the body of your snow globe, and the smaller circle will be the top.

Glue the Felt Circles Together

Attach the smaller felt circle to the top of the larger one to create the top of the snow globe. You can also add a small felt circle to the bottom of the larger one to create a “floor” for the snow globe. If you don’t want to add this, your child can hold the snow globe up to look inside. You can also use a hot glue gun to attach a pipe cleaner or other decoration to the top of the snow globe.

Add Glitter and Sequins

Cover the body of your snow globe with silver glitter and sequins. You can either use hot glue or fabric glue to adhere to them. Next, add a layer of white paint over the glitter and sequins. You may need two coats to get good coverage. Once the white paint is dry, add a top coat of clear acrylic sealant. This will protect your costume from the weather and make it shine!

Fill With Fake Snow

To make a snow globe, you will need to buy fake snow, which can be found at most stores that sell Halloween or craft supplies. If you can’t find fake snow, you can use packing peanuts or cotton balls.

Create the Costume Base

Your costume for a snow globe can be any clothing that is large enough to fit over your head and body. You will also need a large piece of cardboard to use as the snow globe’s frame. Cut the cardboard so that it is slightly larger than your body.

Attach the Frame to the Clothing

Use hot glue or staples to attach the frame to the clothing. Make sure that the frame is securely attached to not fall off when you wear the costume.

Use Hot Glue

Fill the Frame with Fake Snow

Fill the frame with fake snow. Ensure that the snow is evenly distributed and that there are no gaps. You may need a glue gun to hold the snow in place.

Finish the Costume

Add a hat, scarf, and gloves to complete your snow globe costume. You can also use fake snow to decorate your hair and face. Have fun, and be sure to take lots of pictures!

This costume is easy to make and only requires a few supplies. It is perfect for last minute costume decisions or for anyone who wants to have some festive fun. The snow globe costume is unique and will have everyone talking.

Some Helpful Tips and Suggestions:

1. The first thing you need to do is decide what type of costume you want to make. You can go with a traditional snow globe costume or get creative and come up with your own design.

2. Once you have decided on the type of costume you want to make, you need to gather the materials that you will need. This includes fabric, a hot glue gun, fake snow, a cardboard tube, ribbon, scissors, and a needle and thread.

3.The next step in making your snow globe costume is to create the main body of the costume. This is a sphere-shaped piece of fabric that you will hot glue to the cardboard tube. Make sure that the fabric is large enough to fit comfortably over your head and body.

4. Once the main body of the costume is complete, it is time to add the details. A snow globe costume includes the fake snow and the ribbon. First, cut a piece of fake snow that is big enough to cover the main body of the costume and hot glue it in place. Then, tie a piece of ribbon around the waist to create a makeshift belt.

5. While you’re outside, I suggest putting on a coat and scarf because it’s 0 degrees outside. It may be cold, but being bundled up is the best way to enjoy winter!
