My love for snowglobes is no secret – and we all know that slime is all the rage right now, so of course I wanted to try combing the two. And so it happened, the Slime Snowglobe!!
It’s a fun way to give slime as a gift, and I have a quick run-down on how to make your own Slime Snowglobe. This post is in collaboration with Elmers and may contain affiliate links.

Slime Snowglobe VIDEO Tutorial
yes, lucky you, I have a VIDEO tutorial!! I walk you through the craft project in just a couple of minutes of video fun.
Slime Snowglobe Tutorial
In case you’d rather have a photo tutorial, let me walk you through that.
First, use hot glue or other glue to attach your statue to the inner base of the snowglobe:
Next up, make your slime – the Elmer’s Glitter Glue is PERFECT , so glittery!!
ELMER’S GLITTER SLIME RECIPE
1/2 tbsp of baking soda
1¼ tbsp of contact lens solution
6 fl oz Elmer’s Glitter Glue
ELMER’S GLITTER SLIME RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Pour out the entire contents of a 6 oz of Elmer’s Glitter Glue into a bowl.
2. Add ½ tbsp of baking soda and mix thoroughly.
3. Add 1¼ tbsp of contact lens solution.
4. Mix until mixture gets harder to mix and slime begins to form.
5. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
6. If needed, add ¼ tbsp of contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky.
*Adult supervision is required; This project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Always wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), get medical attention immediately.
Then, add the slime to the snowglobe.
NOTE: in the video I added it to the top of the snowglobe, then waited for the slime to drop over the reindeer. BUT, that was taking forever, so I ended up opening it up, pulling the slime out of the top and then putting more in a ring around the bottom of the globe and pushing the deer up through the middle of the ring, if that makes sense . Then it settled down into its place from there.
Enjoy making your own Slime Snowball!!
