Make a beautiful mason jar snow globe in under 5 minutes! This simple tutorial will teach you how to make a snow globe in a mason jar to decorate with for the holiday and winter season.
There’s something magical about turning a snow globe upside down and watching the small glitter flakes happily dance down to the bottom of the jar. When I was in Anthropologie recently I saw some lovely snow globes made out of mason jars that I fell in love with.
Each Anthropologie snow globe mason jar was adorable, but I knew that I could make them for a LOT cheaper using mason jars from my collection and some bottle brush trees.
I found my bottle brush trees at Home Depot (of all places) for around $7.50 for a BIG bag of 21 trees. Such a great deal!
Here’s how to make my Anthropologie inspired snow globes, with a much more reasonable price tag.
BONUS: These DIY mason jar snow globes can be made in under 5 minutes each!
How to Make a Mason Jar Snow Globe
- Mason jars (any shape and size you want)
- Bottle brush trees
- Fake snow or epsom salt (I used fake snow because I wanted it fluffier than Anthro’s version)
- Glue gun
- Clear glitter (optional)
- Small rocks or clear pebbles (optional)
This DIY mason jar snow globe looks so pretty in my home. A snow globe made out of a mason jar would make a thoughtful gift for friends, neighbors, and teachers.
P.S. If you were thinking about adding water and glycerin to this version, DON’T, unless you want to have a “blue Christmas” 😉
Not that I would ever try such a silly thing…
