Handmade Winter Snow Globe

November 20, 2014

SnowGlobe-1

I’ve seen these little mason jar snow globes floating around Pinterest for some time. I really enjoy having some holiday decorations that are not Christmas specific. That way you can enjoy them all season long. With these globes I have found out you can customize them till your hearts content. Want to throw a Santa figurine in there? Go ahead! Want some deer? Go ahead! As long as you don’t overwhelm your jar the results always seem to be gorgeous.

You need a jar of your choosing, it can be white or blue with a glass lid or metal lid. The only stipulation is that you like it. Then get yourself some bottle brush trees, you can find them at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s or online here. And the last supply I needed for mine was epsom salts, you can find this at any store in the health and beauty section. This project turned out to be a winter version of a terrarium, which are so cool to decorate with.

Place your trees inside your jar, if your jar is big enough try out different size combinations until you find something you like. Next add in the epsom salts and then using a fork or even chop sticks place any other figurines around your jar.

SnowGlobe-4I have already really enjoyed my globe, and it was really easy to make. It only took a few minutes once I had all my supplies, which would make them really great for handmade gifts this season.
