I want to make a large snowglobe to be used in a Christmas parade. Any ideas on how to construct one?

RE: Making a Large Snow Globe

Use pvc pipe to make a 3d pentagonal frame. It should have six roads four joints and a four way piece too connect them at the top. It will also need some way of stabling at the bottom. Throw a clear tarp or shower curtain over it then tie it down too look like a dome. have a slit in the clear plastic so people can go in and out then on the inside hang paper snowflakes from fishing line and use spray glue on the out side of the plastic then sprinkle glitter all over it. For the parade someone can dress up as a snow man, elf or anything and sit inside. (12/05/2005)

Could you use one of the inflatable snow globes that they sell for yard decorations? I have one that is Halloween decoration but here is a photo of a snowman family for winter. It's very simple yo setup and you could run the fan with a converter for the lighter in a car. (12/05/2005)

RE: Making a Large Snow Globe

Maybe you could make your own like the yard decorations that they sell. If you took clear plastic and sew into a round shape globe and attach to cardboard or some kind of base to set your internal decorations on. Then you could use packing peanuts as the snow. I would suggest maybe a leaf blower or a small high powered fan to blow it up. You would have to make a tube of the plastic to attach to the leaf blower or fan and then sew it into the bottom corner of your globe.

If you don't have a yard decoration like I am talking about maybe visit a store near you that sells them and see how they are made. I would think you could make one a lot cheaper than purchasing one. (12/06/2005)

I would use clear plastic sheets and join them at the edges and form an octagon shaped snow globe. Then set up your scene on a base pre measured to fit. And as for the falling snow,just use a pump and artificial snow,set the pump in the center and camouflage it somehow let it pump the snow into the air inside the octagon bubble,then it would fall like snow.

I'm interested in making a snowglobe out of a baby food jar, but the website said use florist clay and other water-proof items.

Does anyone know if that salt dough you use for crafts would make a good substitute for this purpose?
