Mason Jar Snow Globe

Day 11: 25 Days of Christmas

Mason Jar Snow Globe

Who else woke up to snow this morning? Yesterday’s flurries got us super inspired to make today’s project – Mason Jar Snow Globes! It’s super easy to do, and looks STINKIN’ ADORABLE.

Here’s What you’ll need:

 

  • Any sized Mason Jar with a lid. (Specifically one with a wide lid.) We went for this decorative, smaller one with a clear window.
  • Decorations!  This part you can customize however you would like. We went to A.C. Moore and bought these mini trees and snow sled for a more “Winter Wonderland” scene. (We REALLY wanted to find a mini version of our friend’s “Wileneer”/Jeep Wagoneer, but everyone was sold out!)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Styrofoam Base (or anything sturdy and water resistant)
  • GLITTER (or fake snow)
  • Optional: Paint & Paintbrush to paint the lids. (We ended up keeping the silver lid, although a nice red or gold would look SUPERB!

 

 

Instructions:

 

  • The first thing you are going to want to do is get your base together for your decorations. We used two layers of foam core and hot glued those bad boys together to create a base with height.
  • Once your base is done, break out your decorations and start staging how you want your Snow Globe to look.
  • After you’ve changed your mind at least 15 times, settle on one layout and hot glue your pieces to the base. (The last thing you want is for your kids to get ahold of your globe, start shaking it and find that Santa is now floating on the top of your globe like some dead goldfish. Not a pretty look.)
  • Optional: If you’re looking to paint your mason jar lids, do so now while your base & decorations are drying!
  • When your base & decorations are fully dried, hot glue the entire piece onto the mason jar lid.
  • Now’s the fun part! Fill your mason jar up 90% with water. Sprinkle in your glitter and GENTLY mix your sprinkles in. (I was a little aggressive and all my glitter came out of the jar.)
  • Place your lid/base/decorations in the mason jar with glitter and BAM! You’ve got a Snow Globe!

I hope you guys liked today’s project as much as I do! I think these snow globes will be a PERFECT stocking stuffer/entertainment for the little ones. (Or not so little ones…I’m kind of obsessed with them too.) If you decide to try out this project, let us know & send us a pic! There’s nothing we love more than hearing from you guys!

 

Alright, my friends. We’ll see you tomorrow for Day 12!

 

P.S. – Everyone comment on Doris’ new photography skills! Aren’t these pictures awesome! She’s been learning how to use my camera for a couple of days now and she’s a natural!

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought
    I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved
    soon. Cheers

    me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time
    a comment is added I get four emails with the same
    comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s webpage link on your page at suitable place and other person will also do similar in favor of
    you.

    hey there and thank you for your information – I have definitely picked up something new
    from right here. I did however expertise a few technical issues using this website, since I experienced
    to reload the website a lot of times previous to I could get it to
    load properly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK?
    Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times
    will sometimes affect your placement in google and can damage your
    high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for much more of
    your respective exciting content. Ensure
    that you update this again very soon.

    I do believe all the ideas you’ve offered on your post.
    They are very convincing and will certainly
    work. Still, the posts are very brief for newbies.
    Could you please prolong them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove
    people from that service? Bless you!
