Waterless Snow Globes

These waterless snow globes by Down Redbud Drive are a great option if you want to place something inside a snow globe that you want to protect and preserve. Instead of shaking it up, though, the snow globe is merely ornamental. By placing the objects on a bed of fake snow inside the jar, you can swap out the scenes whenever you'd like. This is a great idea for kids who may want to use their mini-figures and toys but still be able to pull them out to play with them later.
