DIY Mason Jar Snow Globes

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
  1. 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.
  2. Place fake snow inside the mason jar.
  3. Once the glue dries, close the lid on the mason jar.
  4. Flip over, give it a shake, and voila! You have your very own mason jar snow globe. Adorable!


Tip: I like to group a few in different sizes and display them on a console or bookcase, and have been known to give them out as whimsical gifts as well.
