Snow Globes

Snow Globes

I love the idea of real DIY snowglobes, but the potential for the water causing a serious mess has always kept me from trying it. These waterless mason jar snowglobes are a low-mess solution, and are quick and easy to make. I created these as little gifts for friends, but a grouping of these in different sizes would make a beautiful display in a window or on a mantel.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. hot glue gun
  2. bottle-brush tree
  3. mason jar - with lid
  4. artificial snow
  5. ribbon or twine (optional)
  1. Gather your materials. Just make sure your trees are small enough to fit into the jars!

  2. Unscrew the lid from the mason jar and set it upside down on the table. Hot glue the bottle-brush tree to the center of the lid.

  3. Pour a little bit of the artificial snow into the mason jar. You don’t need a lot, just enough to cover the tree nicely. When the glue is totally dry, screw the lid back onto the jar.

  4. Add a ribbon for embellishment if you’d like.

  5. Turn the jar upside down, and you’ve got a snow globe! Create several in different sizes for a Christmas display that will last for years.
