Finding Dory is in theaters everywhere today! I got to see an early screening of the movie and quickly fell in love with one of the new characters, Hank the Octopus. An octopus might seem an unlikely character for one to fall in love with, but you’ll have to trust me on this one until you see the movie. Although he might not seem so at first, Hank is an incredibly lovable guy and eventually becomes a good friend to Dory. I think you’re going to like this DIY Glitter Globe featuring Hank from Finding Dory.
I’ve become somewhat obsessed with glitter jars since I made these Glow Jars that were inspired by the Disney Star Darlings series, so be on the lookout for more glitter projects in the coming weeks. In the meantime, grab your supplies and get ready to make this fun Hank from Finding Dory glitter globe! (Supply list includes some affiliate links.)
