Mason Jar Snow Globes

Here’s a fun craft for the kids: DIY Christmas and holiday snowglobes in mason jars and vintage glass jars. You can find many small Christmas items at your local craft store in the Christmas village accessories area. Also, for very inexpensive cute little Christmas figurines, try your local dollar store (they actually have several cute items to choose from, snowmen, santas, christmas trees, etc.). Use a waterproof glue (super glue) to adhere items to metal lid or twine to hang items. These make a great project to do with the kids and they make wonderful gifts!

What you’ll need:
Any jar that seals
Distilled Water|
Liquid Glycerin
Glitter
Figurines
Epoxy/Crazy Glue

*you can find the glycerin at the drug store in the pharmacy section.

1) Using the Crazy Glue, attach your figurines to the lid of the mason jar. Let them dry completely. (wait 24 hours to be sure.)

2) Next, fill your jar almost to the top with distilled water. Add a dash of liquid glycerin (this is used to make the glitter fall more slowly). The amount of glitter you add is sort of at your own discretion. Screw the cap on tightly and shake your jar to get the glitter moving.

3) Another great suggestion is to glue a lego to the inside of the lid and one to the main item (figurine) that you want in the bottle… That way you can change out the figurine to anything you want whenever you desire, or for each holiday, just by having a connecting lego on each item.
