DIY: Mason Jar Snow Globe

Posted by FlyAway BlueJay on

It's almost Christmas and we can feel the excitement in the air! This time of year gets pretty hectic and its always nice to take a moment to slow down and create something.

The mason jar has stuck around as a staple in rustic chic decor and we took advantage of it's air tight abilities to create a simple snow globe. These make the perfect decorations for a mantle or a cute gift for a friend.

What you'll need: 

Mason jars

Waterproof glue

Bottle brush trees


Baby oil or glycerin (optional)

Step One: Glue a tree on the interior side of the mason jar lid. Make sure to let it fully dry. 

Step Two: Add glitter into a mason jar. You only need to cover the bottom of the jar in glitter. Also beware that glitter makes a mess :)

Step Three: Fill up the mason jar with water. Remember to leave space because of the displacement of water when you add the tree. To make the glitter fall at a slower pace you can add a few drops of glycerin or baby oil. Do not add more than two drops or else you will end up with oil blobs floating in your snow globe!

Step Four: Add the tree and tightly screw on the lid. Make sure it's as tight as possible so no water leaks out!

Experiment with different sized mason jars to create a full forest of snow globes!
