Step 1: Download and Print the Free Snow Globe Template

Download the Free Snow Globe Printable. In the next step, learn how to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Craft Shapes

Staple the snow globe PDF template to sheets of colored paper to cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Once you have the snow globe templates printed out, staple them to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will have so much fun making their snow globes!

Christmas snow globe or winter snow globe craft for Crafting Jeannie

I recommend having a snow globe that is already put together so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. start with the blue circle
  2. glue the smaller end of the brown base behind the blue circle
  3. glue on the two trees
  4. if you are making the Christmas trees, glue on the stars and decorations
  5. pull apart a few cotton balls and glue them to base of the trees for snow
  6. For the snow flakes: dip your fingertip into white paint and dab on snowflakes around the trees OR use the whiteout brush/pen to stamp snowflakes around the trees
  7. don’t forget to write your name on the back

    1. I sent you an email about the snow globe craft earlier this week. I still have not received the template in my email. I have checked the spam folder and it is not there either.
      Is there something that I did wrong?

      1. Hi Elise,
        I replied to your email yesterday, did you receive it? I can try to send it again with the templates as a PDF. Please let me know if you’re still not getting it. Thanks ~Jeannie

        1. Thank you for getting back to me. No, I did not get the email.
          I will sign up with a different email address and see if that helps.

          1. Hi Elise, I just saw this comment today. I hope the alternate email address worked! let me know if you need anything else 🙂

      1. Hi Stephanie,
        I just sent you a message. The way the website works is that it sends every activity via email. So you should have received an email with the link to the template. Even then, sometimes the emails get blocked altogether or sent to SPAM or PROMOTIONS folders. If you can’t find the email in one of those folders, just email me at Jeannie@craftingjeannie.com
        Have a great day,
