Mason Jar Snow Globe

I love Christmas, and I enjoy making decorations for my home. This is the first Christmas since my son was born that my family and I will get to spend at home without traveling, so I plan on making our house look as festive as possible. I am working on lots of DIY decorations, and I hope to share them with you all as time permits.

For this blog post, I decided to make a snow globe. I already had a case of mason jars at home, so I only needed to buy a couple of other cheap items.I used the following supplies to complete this project: mason jar, glue gun, glue sticks, water, fine glitter, miniature Christmas figurines. All of the supplies were really inexpensive because I bought them at dollar stores.

Step 1:

Turn the lid upside down. Then, hot glue the figurines to the lid. Make sure the figurines are centered on the lid so that they do not cover the seal.

Step 2:

Fill the mason jar almost to the top with water. Then, pour in the glitter. (You can either pour in the glitter first or the water, it’s just personal preference.)

***FYI: A lot of tutorials called for using glycerin in the water because it can make the glitter fall slowly. It made my glitter lump together, so use at your own discretion.

Step 4:

Turn the figurines over into the water. Then, tightly screw on the lid.

I really enjoyed making this snow globe. The supplies were inexpensive, and it didn’t take a lot of time to complete. I look forward to making more of these for family and friends.

  1. My daughter and I were talking about this about an hour ago. I told her that I was going to go on Pinterest And look for a pin but haven’t had the chance to. Thanks for doing this. It must be meant to do this project with her. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
