make it // mason jar snow globes


happy black friday! i hope all of you (the americans anyway!) had a wonderful thanksgiving. 

now for crafting. 

if we're being perfectly honest, i've had the supplies for these anthro-inspired holiday gems squatting with my craft stuff for…over a year. but hey! wouldn't be the first time i found myself in one of these self-inflicted lazy crafter predicaments. 

this is one of the quickest, cheapest crafts you'll ever make. but also the most magical. all you need: mason jars, faux glitter snow, & bottle brush trees (woodland creature figurines are also great, or anything else you'd like to put inside) -- all available at your craft store. just unscrew the lid of the jar, and glue (i used craft glue, but may refinish them with a hot glue gun) your trinkets to the bottom of the lid. while you wait for it to dry, dump a bit of the faux snow into the open jar. you hardly need any snow at all. i chose to make these little scenes waterless, but whether you use water is up to you. once the glue's set, tip the lid upside down (rather than the jar with the snow…unless you want to recreate a small blizzard on your kitchen table) and screw it on. 

tada! a snowy, winter wonderland for your shelf.

  2. This is so cute and I love, love, love how rustic it is! I actually love it a thousand times more than the usual round snowglobes. So sweet! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, sweet girl!
