Make: Mason Jar Tree Snowglobes

Thursday, December 20, 2012





I saw these tree globes at the beginning of the season and I thought they were so cute and would make sweet little gifts to those people you don't know what on earth to get them. I also thought there's no way I am paying $28.00 for one when I know I can make that myself! I made these ones for about $10 each which is a splurge because I bought really lovely antique mason jars and trees - I know they could be made for much less. I also bought a giant bag of "snow" because apparently they only sell giant bags of fake snow. But for my two dollars I am fairly certain I can make snow globes every year for the rest of my life, or I can mail you some (seriously I would; though if you think glitter is bad it has nothing on fake snow).

So this is about as easy of a DIY as you can get and that's what I am into, simple diys. It took me all of about 1 minute to make these ones. What you need is a mason jar, glue gun or other glue substance that will hold strong, a bottle brush tree, and some fake snow. And all you do is glue your tree to the lid, add snow and screw on lid. Twenty-eight dollars, hahahaha.

  8. Twenty eight bucks?! What a rip off! Good for you for DIYing these. I had a humongous collection of snowglobes when I was a kid. Whenever we went on a trip anywhere I would pick one up. I wonder if my mom still has them somewhere in the house. There were like, 50, I swear. They were all plastic so obviously not as antique or hand-made as this, but still! Do the wee ones like them?

  10. I too saw these at Anthro and thought they would make a perfect gift! I'm glad you "splurged" for the antique-y jars and trees because they are so cute and look the same!
