Mason Jar Snow Globes

Ok...first, I have to admit that this was not my idea. I borrowed it from another blogger...but (my bad) I can't remember who. *So, if it's anyone reading get all the credit! :)

I love snow globes...I think they're magical! And this project couldn't have been easier. The hardest part was waiting the 24 hours for the adhesive to dry.

*Supplies: Wide-mouth Mason Jars with screw-on lids, water-proof adhesive (I used E-6000 permanent bond), glitter (silver or white), and tiny trees (these are for the little Christmas villages--you could use any tiny holiday items: snowflakes, pinecones, etc.).

1. Glue the trees to the underside of the jar lid (let sit for 24 hours to ensure the waterproofness of the glue).

**“How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees? Thou know’st we work by wit, and not by witchcraft; And wit depends on dilatory time.”

-From William Shakespeare’s Othello

A little literature lesson for y'all while you wait. ;) It's true, though...sometimes the hardest part of a craft is the time waiting inbetween steps.

2. After the glue dried...I poured about 1/8 inch of glitter into the bottom of the jar (thinking of Edward Cullen the whole time). Then, filled the jar with water. I thought I would need to leave space for water displacement when I submurged the trees, but I ended up having to add water. You can pretty much fill to the top...just invert the trees slowly into the water.

3. Finally...just screw the lid on tightly...and there you have it...a homemade, soverycute snowglobe! :)


  1. That is so cute!!! I completely agree with you about patience while crafting. I get too anxious. Also, when I go to the store to get all my supplies, I have issues waiting till I actually have time to do my crafting.-Nicole
