How to Make Your Own Snow Globe - Disney's "Nutcracker & the Four Realms" NOW on DVD

In honor of the DVD release of Disney's "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms", I'm going to share how to Make Your Own Snow Globe so you too can bring the Land of Snowflakes to life!

What you need:
- figures of choice (focal piece)
- diamond dust, glitter, or fake snow
- water
- EnviroTex Lite & paintbrush (optional)

What you do:
1. Sand both the bottom of the focal piece and interior seal of the snow globe where the focal piece will be placed - this will allow for better adhesion once glued.
2. Place & glue any figures to the inside of the lid. Let thoroughly dry for 24 hours.
Optional: Follow directions on the EnviroTex Lite Package and using a paintbrush, coat your focal piece and interior seal making sure you have it completely sealed. Set aside and let dry completely.
3. Add 2-3 teaspoons of snow to the globe container.
4. Fill the globe with water being careful to not fill all the way to the top.
5. Add 3-4 drops of glycerin to the globe.
6. Screw the lid on the globe and then glue the lid shut.
7. Shake your jar and watch the Land of Snowflakes come to life.

About the movie:

Disney's dazzling adventure "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms"- inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic tale and the beloved ballet "The Nutcracker"- carried audiences along with 14-year-old Clara (Mackenzie Foy) to a magical, mysterious world with breathtaking performances by Misty Copeland plus sweets, snowflakes, soldiers, scurrying mice... and no shortage of surprises. Destined to become an annual viewing tradition for adventurers of all ages, the film arrives home instantly with never-before seen extras and deleted scenes on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD Jan. 29, 2019.

Bonus features include a discussion with American Ballet Theatre’s Misty Copeland about her role as the enchanting Ballerina Princess, her personal history with “The “Nutcracker” ballet, and her inspirational and historic rise within the world of dance. Extras take viewers on the set of “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” to meet both new and reimagined characters, and discover how the Land of Sweets, Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and mysterious Fourth Realm were created to such dazzling effect. Deleted scenes provide a look at magical moments that didn’t make the final version of the movie.

In “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” Clara travels along a golden thread, presented at Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual party, eagerly searching for a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a music box that holds a priceless gift. When she enters a mysterious parallel world, Clara encounters a Nutcracker soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and three Realm regents, including the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightley). Ultimately, she must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve the key and return harmony to the unstable world.

The stunning feature film will be packaged and released in several different formats, giving families the flexibility to watch it on a variety of different devices. Viewers can instantly watch the film in Digital UHD, HD and SD, and bring home a physical copy of the film as the Ultimate Collector’s Edition (4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital Code), Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Code) or a single DVD.

  1. That's such a neat idea. Kids would love making a snow globe. And this movie is one I want to see just for the costumes!

  2. This movie was magical! Mackenzie Foy really nailed her character! She certainly has come a long way from being Renessemee from the Twilight saga! I had to pin this information on making a snow globe. I love them and this one is pretty! (Even though I really don’t like the snow right now)! Thank so much for sharing! This activity is sure to be a hit with the grandkids!!


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
