How to Tuesday: Mason Jar Snowglobe!

Before I head home for the holidays I have just enough time to share a quick last-minute DIY gift! I saw this online last year and I can’t believe I waited so long to make it. Today’s project is a snowglobe from a mason jar. And trust me when I say it could not be simpler!

Supplies
Mason jar
Water-proof glue (my hot glue gun worked well)
Paint (optional)
Small figurines
Water
Glitter
Glycerin

1. Choose a lightweight object for your snowglobe. You can find lots of small animal figurines and trees at your favorite crafts store. I went a different route and used a small Empire State Building statue I found in a shop.

2. This step is optional, but I’m glad I did it. To give your snowglobe an extra flair of fancy, paint your object gold or silver. I had some extra spraypain from the straw sunbursts and painted my Empire State Building gold. I suggest also painting the lid and the screw cap as well.

3. Once your painted figurines and lid are dry, glue them to the flat lid.

4. While your glue dries, fill the mason jar with water and add in glitter. (No such thing as too much glitter or “snow” in a snowglobe!)

5. Add in a few drops of glycerin to help the glitter fall slowly in the snowglobe. I recommend 2 or 3 drops. I used 5 and it was way too many.

6. Hold the lid upside down OUTSIDE of the jar and make sure the glue is dry and holding the figurines’ weight. Place lid on top and screw the cap back onto the jar.

7. Shake well, but gently!

It’s safe to say that a lot of people on my list next year will be getting these. But I’m keeping this one of Empy for myself.

New in December & January!
