10 Uses For Printable Snow Globe Templates
Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Clip Art
You can use my snow globe templates for anything you would normally use in clip art.
For example, as an illustration for a poster or sign, as an addition to a DIY calendar, or as part of a PowerPoint or report.
The great thing is that you can also add to the snow globes by layering other clip art over the top and using Paint or Illustrator, or Photoshop to color everything in.
9. Stand-Up Snow Globes
This craft is ideal for grade schoolers learning to use scissors and write their names.
You’ll use one of the larger snow globe templates; have the kids draw in whatever they want inside the snow globe and then cut it out.
When they’re cutting it out, at the base, they should extend the sides so that there are two-inch wide strips on either side of the snow globe.
These will be used to create a loop, secured with tape, glue, or even a staple, which allows the snow globe to stand upright on its own.
8. Snow Globe Picture Frames
My snow globe templates can be used to make super cute picture frames for photos of your kids.
The size of the snow globe depends on the size of your photos, so choose accordingly.
Print them out, and then, within the snow globe, draw a slightly smaller circle. Work your scissors in and cut out along the smaller circle so that the globe is now a frame.
You can either glue the photo to a piece of transparency paper or glue the photo directly to the back of the frame, the picture side up.
7. Classroom Activities
You can use my snow globe templates in many ways to promote learning and fun in the classroom.
For example, you could add lines inside one of the larger snow globes and have your students respond to the prompt, “If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to…”
For smaller kids just learning to write, you could fill the snow globe with text that reads, “My name is _______” and “My name has ___ letters.”
You could also write in word math problems in the snow globes; for example, “Yesterday, three inches of snow fell; last night, seven inches fell. How much snow fell in total?”
6. Greeting Card Embellishments
My snow globe templates would make beautiful embellishments for DIY greeting cards, whether they’re for Christmas, any of the winter holidays, or even a “Thinking of you” card.
You can draw in whatever you like inside the snow globe, cut it out, and paste it to the front of the card.
5. Home Décor
You can also use my snow globe templates as part of your home décor; there are so many clever ways they can be incorporated.
For example, you could color in the globe, cut it out, and Mod Podge it to a ceramic display plate.
Or you could draw scenes from cities onto multiple snow globes, frame them as a series, and hang them on your wall.
You could also use them as picture frames, per my craft above, but use photos of your entire family and decorate them to represent somewhere you went – the beach, a new city, etc.
4. Winter Wonderland School Dance Decorations
If you’re holding a Winter Wonderland-themed winter dance but don’t have a lot of budget for decorations, you can use my snow globe templates as inexpensive décor.
Simply get the dance committee together to color them in and decorate them; you could use resin snowflakes of different sizes and cotton balls torn up to represent snow.
Or you could make a display featuring the winter court, with the Winter Queen and King candidates’ photos featured in the snow globes.
3. Christmas Tree Ornaments
To make snow globe Christmas tree ornaments, you will need shrink sheets, which you can purchase online at Amazon for less than $10 a package.
You’ll print the templates of your choice onto the shrink sheets, then have your kids color them in with markers and cut them out.
They’ll want to punch holes near the top of the snow globes, and then you can bake them per the instructions.
Once they’ve cooled, you can decorate the ornaments further, adding ribbon tied into bows or glitter glue around the edges, etc.
Then you’ll tie off a piece of ribbon through the hole and hang it on your tree.
2. Winter Party Decorations
My snow globe templates make for lovely and affordable winter party decorations; you only have to color them in and cut them out.
You can tie multiples together to make bunting hanging over a doorway or create frames out of black construction paper, paste them to the paper, and hang them on the walls.
Use them as place settings (the stand-up snow globe craft is ideal for this) or even table centerpieces.
1. Wintry Snow Globe Suncatchers
To make snow globe suncatchers, you will need transparency paper and light blue tissue paper.
You’ll print the snow globe templates onto the transparency paper and cut them out.
Cut down a piece of blue tissue paper and glue it to the back of the snow globe.
Then you can add whatever tissue paper embellishments you like, whether it’s snowflakes, Christmas trees, presents, or even penguins.
Poke a hole near the top and tie off a piece of string; you can then use that and a suction cup hook to hang the snow globe in a sunny window.
