Happy December! Christmas decorating is in full effect chez moi, from putting up the tree to displaying branches and other holiday-themed decor. Given my current festive frame of mind, I wanted to share a really fun DIY project I stumbled upon a couple of years ago on Whipperberry: mason jar snow globes!
Inspired by snow globes from Anthropologie, these will add a vintage feel to your holiday decor, and they are incredibly simple to make. Pretty? Check. Minimal time requirement? Check. Cost-effective too? Just how I like it! Read on for the necessary materials and step-by-step instructions, and you’ll have your very own ‘Christmas in a jar’ in no time.
What You’ll Need:
- Mason jars (whichever size(s) you prefer)
- Bottle brush trees (fun fact: mine were leftover samples from an in-store Canadian Tire nativity scene that were graciously sold to me by the sales associate after my pleading)
- Fake snow
- Hot glue gun
- Once the glue gun heats up, place a dollop of hot glue underneath the bottle brush tree and adhere to the inside of the mason jar lid.
- Place fake snow inside the mason jar.
- Once the glue dries, close the lid on the mason jar.
- Flip over, give it a shake, and voila! You have your very own mason jar snow globe. Adorable!
