How to Make DIY Mason Jar Snow Globes – Tutorial

December 13th, 2012

I recently made a ton of these Mason Jar Snow Globes with my children and the young women in our church. Everyone LOVED them so much. They are beautiful, fun and easy to do! It’s a great project and when you’re done you feel like you really have accomplished something wonderful because they are mesmerizing. Here’s how I made ours >>

You’ll Need:
-Clean Mason Jar and Lid with a good seal
-Glitter OR Snow Flakes (I purchased Buffalo SnowFlakes at Michaels – see image)
-Something to put inside your globe. I found these cute trees at our Shoppers Drug Mart – a box of 3 for $5 but you can use bottle brushes or other trees from hobby and craft stores.
-ribbon if you wish
-A Glue Gun

How To:
-Use your glue gun to glue the base of your tree to the inside middle of your lid. Ensure it’s directly in the middle and test it out ahead of time to make your your tree will fit through the opening. Let it dry.
-Add your snowflakes or glitter to your jar, a little goes a long way. I used few generous pinches with these flakes but you can do whatever you’d like.
-Now add your water. You want to fill your jar quite high, almost to the rim so you don’t have big ugly air bubbles. Just a little space. Don’t worry you can always adjust it.
-Now take your lid with tree attached and screw it into place. Tighten it good and tight. Wipe down your jar and make sure you have a good strong seal.
-Add some cute ribbon and you’re done!

Now you’re ready to gift them or enjoy them. Be warned, they are addictive and you’ll want to make lots. You can also experiment with jar sizes and cute things to put in them (i.e. christmas balls, ornaments, figurines etc.). Have fun with the flakes, go make some MAGIC!! – Daria
