  2. Carefully fill the jar halfway with water, ensuring not to overflow.
  3. Add approximately 1 teaspoon of glycerin or clear glue to the water and give it a gentle stir. This secret ingredient will help the glitter create a mesmerizing snowfall effect.
  4. Sprinkle 1-2 teaspoons of glitter into the jar. Feel free to mix different colors for a dazzling display.
  5. Continue filling the jar with water, leaving just a bit of space at the top.
  6. Apply hot glue to the inside of the lid and securely screw it onto the jar. This step ensures a watertight seal, preventing any glittery leaks.
