To keep in the spirit of the quickly approaching holiday season, I decided to make some DIY Snow Globes. First spotted at Anthropologie (for a ridiculously overpriced amount), these snow globes have picked up major popularity across the DIY world. It is no wonder why; they are cheap, easy, and made from the super popular Mason jar. Most likely you have a couple of these jars at home already, so you can just use those. I found these little notion pine trees at the Dollar Store, in packs of 2! They were in the holiday section, next to the little ceramic houses for making your own little decorative town. I picked up the ‘snow’ from Hobby Lobby, and all their Christmas decor/items are 50% off right now. You just need a small amount, so get the smallest bag available. If you don’t have Mason jars, they can also be found at Hobby Lobby. Keep your eye out because their glassware goes to 50% off a couple weeks a month.
These little guys would make a great gift, or a craft to do with the kids. You could be creative with what goes inside too!
It’s really very simple. Take your tree and glue it to the lid of the jar. Put some snow into the bottom of the jar (not too much). Screw lid onto jar. Voila!
I put these adorable snow globes up on my mantle for now. If you need more mantle inspiration check out my collection of holiday mantles! I can’t wait to finish decorating for the holidays!
