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!

Thanks for visiting!
thanks, girl 🙂
That's very cute! I wonder if there is a way to make it like a traditional snow globe with water so that the snow floats in the air before it sinks to the bottom! You know what I mean??
Thanks, Laura. Yes, I have seen those on pinterest! I didn't want to mess with the water aspect of it, but I did read somewhere that you just add some glycerin to the water and it will do it. Maybe pinterest it!
Good thinking! You can find everything on Pinterest. Lol
That is definitely true!
Definitely doing this the next time I can get to the dollar store...I like the idea of no water, it won't be as messy when my toddler wants to help 🙂
I realy like!!!!!!!!!!
These are SO cute!!! Wade asked me "when does she sleep?" when I showed him the pictures! LOL!
So funny....tell him between midnight and 6am, lol. Sleep is overrated....especially during the holidays! Are you guys back?! Did you have an awesome time?!
Awesome indeed! Between the food, wine, new olive oil, and cooking class, we hardly had time to relax LOL!
Your snow globes turned out fantastic!
So pretty! Thanks for linking up at my Pin Me Linky Party. I hope you come visit & link again. The party starts tomorrow at 8am CST.
Thanks, I will!
I really love these snow globes. I need to go out and find some of those little Christmas trees and make some of these! Thank you for sharing this at the Home for the Holidays link Party. I hope you continue to bring more of your wonderful recipes, the party continues for a month!
Thanks so much! I found mine at The Dollar Tree, and actually saw them there the other day!
