One of my favorite traditions during the holiday season is breaking all the Christmas decorations out right after Thanksgiving. Last weekend, read here, I had the pleasure of adorning my home with all my favorite Christmas decorations; of course, with a few changes… always got to keep things interesting. One of my favorite things are the mason jar snow globes I made last year. Those were inspired by the always amazing Anthropologie. Said mason jars are no longer available, but if you know Anthropologie then you know they cost a pretty penny. As I was able to find everything I needed to recreate these snow globes, I thought I’d share this simple and easy DIY on the blog this year. And let me just say they cost less than 10 bucks each to make. Can’t beat that! Plus, these days, everything is better with a mason jar. Am I right, or, am I right?
Items you’ll need: Mason Jars (of any size), Small & Medium Size Trees (got mine from Walmart), Hot Glue Gun, and Epsom Salt
Apply glue, either to the base of the tree or directly to the lid, and put pressure on the base of the tree to ensure it is secured.
If you’re using two trees for one jar, repeat the same steps for the second tree. For mine, I had to overlap the bases slightly. It’ll be covered by the “snow,” though, so don’t worry about perfection.
Pour epsom salt, filling the jar about 1/4-1/3 of the way. The more you pour, the more of the tree will be covered.
Repeat the steps to create multiple snow globes.
Secure the lid, flip over, and display! There you have it, the cheapest and easiest DIY Mason Jar Snow Globes.
