This is the cutest craft I’ve made yet this season! Super easy as well. I have seen these on Pinterest and Emma and I decided to give them a try. These are waterless snow globes made out of Mason jars and mini figurines and trees. She is 11 and really enjoyed this project. The only caution I offer is in the use of the hot glue gun. Every other part of this project is very family friendly.
When finished, we created a snowman family that we will keep for years to come.
Here are the supplies needed to make them:
*foil metallic Krylon spray paint, mason jars (or other small jars), snowflakes, glitter, hot glue gun, bristle trees and small figurines. My figurines and trees were purchased at Hobby Lobby. I used ornaments for a couple of them and just unscrewed the hook from the top.
First step is to spray paint your lids. While wet, I added glitter to them. When dry, hot glue the inside to the ring so they are all one piece.
I displayed them in my Dining Room on the buffet. By adding a wood slice and mini tree, it created a Christmasy vignette.
Since I used snowman and deer and not Santa’s, these can be kept out through the winter. Shake them up and watch the snow come tumbling down!
