Mason Jar Snow Globes
First, a little update.
My Christmas tree is up! It is filled with vintage, handmade and special ornaments given to me.
I love this vintage one. If you hang it in front of a light, the heat from the light makes the little fins spin around and around. It is so neat!
We've had lots of snow already this season . . .
and I have been crafting - just a little.
I gathered supplies, such as mason jars, glue gun, fake snow, fake trees and ...
real pine cones to be used as trees.
I put a little fake snow into the mason jar. I placed the trees on little wooden spools so they stood up higher and glued them onto the flat jar lid. I then twisted on the outer ring and we have a waterless snow globe.
Below are three of my creations. In the smaller one on the right I used a pine cone and glitter for the snow.
The small jar on the left was filled almost to the top with distilled water, a smidgen of glycerin and a few dashes of glitter. I glued a plastic doo-dad (a small child holding a Christmas tree) to the lid and twisted the ring on tight.
The first thing I did before making it was put water in the small jelly jar and turn it upside down to make sure it wasn't going to leak.
These are very easy to make.
Have you been getting ready for Christmas?
