Stuff your snow globe and the base, leave some space at the bottom.  Stuff the snow globe well, make sure it has a nice, spherical shape.

Cut out a circular piece of cardboard that is slightly smaller than the diameter of the bottom.  A compass is very useful for this purpose.

Using a sewing needle and saved long tail, start sewing the bottom to the base (don’t forget to insert the cardboard circle inside). Sew about ¾ of the diameter, add more stuffing as necessary.  Add weighted material for stability, and finish sewing the bottom. 

Your snow globe is now ready for embellishment!

If your buttons have shanks, cut the shanks off.

Using a hot glue gun, glue the buttons to the snow globe in any pattern that you like.
