How to Make a Paper Snow Globe

To make this snow globe, start by printing out our paper snow globe template. Then follow these instructions.

Step 1: Cut out the Pieces

Then cut out all the pattern pieces from the printable. Choose which colors of paper you’ll use and start tracing out the template pieces onto them.

Or you could just color in the template pieces and assemble them.

Our template includes the tree, a snowman, a glass base, the snow globe base and some snow pieces.

Cut out all the pieces from the colored paper.

Step 2: Assemble the Globe

Start by attaching the smaller glass base onto the big one. Then glue the snow to the bottom area of the inner glass base.

Step 3: Attach the Base

Then attach the curve-shaped cutout (a sparkle on the glass) on a side of the glass base, keeping the round side of the cutout facing outside.

Like the photo shown above.

Step 4: Start Assembling the Tree

Grab the snowman pieces and glue the 2 stick hands on each side of the snowman.

Add his carrot nose and use a black marker or pen to draw on a set of eyes and a mouth. We made a cute little smile.

Step 8: Finish the Snowman

Then place in your snowman in front of the tree. We used some thin markers to add details here and there to our snow globe.

It would also be fun to add some touches like white glitter dots for snow if you have glitter glue on hand.

Isn’t it cute! I just adore this little craft. Make sure to give your little guy a cute snowman name when you’re done.
