Here is how to put your Mason Jar Snow Globes together:

  1. Using waterproof glue, glue your trees or animals, or other toys to the inside lid of the Mason jar. Let dry completely. I found the miniature trees at Michael’s. I also found a plastic nutcracker ornament, so you can really have some fun with what you place in your “globe.”
  2.  Fill your Mason jar with water, glitter of your choice, and a few generous drops of glycerin to make the glitter fall more slowly.




3. Assemble your snow globe by placing the lid on the jar and then screwing the cap on.

4. Now, turn over and shake!

5. If you want to give this as a gift, you could add twine and a little sign to make the globe a bit more special.



Hope you get a chance to make this, I haven’t been able to walk by mine without giving it a shake, and each time it makes me smile.
