If that wasn't enough the type of glitter I picked out was iridescent and so pretty but it turned out to be clearer than expected and when in water it almost disappears except for a few pale purple flakes. It also seems that aside from not putting enough glitter to matter in, the netting I put in loves to trap glitter.
The hot glue I used seems to do okay so far, my one worry is that since it heated up the glass so much from applying it on the inside and having to cool and set it with water just to keep it from taking twenty minutes to stop baking in the little oven I accidentally created, the water might have seeped under the glue and will eventually peel it off.
The one thing I do like about my failure of a snow globe is the way it looks, the kelp and netting looks so pretty so for now I'll just remember not to tip the jar around and leave it on display since the glitter sparkles in the netting.

Disclaimer; my first attempt at a snow globe has only encouraged me to find new ideas so I'm scouring Pinterest for pins to spark new ideas. Here is my brand new snow globe board. Hopefully I got all the older pins transferred from the other boards and didn't leave any behind. Do you have snow globes?
