Step 8: Glue on your plastic plate

Spread glue all around the rim of your clear plastic plate and carefully stick it down on top of the paper plate. A glue gun is the easiest way to do this. Or you can use a strong PVA glue.

Your snow globe is now ready.

If you want to hang it up onto the wall you can also tape a loop of ribbon to the back of your snow globe.
